It’s almost the NBA offseason which means it’s Ben Simmons’ time to shine.
Simmons, who barely played last season due to a back injury, is reportedly healthy and looking like a new person.
According to a report from the NY Post, people around Simmons have noticed a change in his attitude and work ethic.
“The group around Ben has noticed a complete change in Ben’s focus and mentality [through] this rehab and how he has attacked it and engaged with everything,” the source told The Post, “and there is a lot of belief in him being able to return to his All-Star form.”
On Tuesday, Simmons went viral when he shared shirtless offseason workout photos of himself on his Instagram story.

I wish him the best and all that, but we are absolutely NOT doing this again. We’ll see it when we see it. https://t.co/4ZxQv11gBW
