Ben Simmons’ shot on the court might be broken but off the court, he’s one of the best at shooting his shot.

Just last week it was reported that Simmons, who struggled with his shooting throughout the playoffs, was sitting out the Olympics because he planned on getting in the gym to focus on his “skill development.”


The Philadelphia 76ers’ Ben Simmons has informed the Australian Olympic basketball team that he will not participate in the Tokyo Games.

Coach Brian Goorjian said in a statement that he and Team Australia “understand and support his decision.”

“The best thing for everybody right now is for him to go on and develop that skill package and improve in a couple of areas for his next season in the NBA, but the Boomers are always here for him. We wanted him to know that in his time of need, the culture and the guys here are behind him and support him,” Goorjian said.

Sources had told ESPN’s Brian Windhorst last week that Simmons was doubtful to play in the Olympics because he planned to focus on skill development. The Australians are medal contenders who are scheduled to begin training this week in Los Angeles and play Team USA in two exhibition games next month in Las Vegas.

Apparently, Simmons hasn’t been seen inside a gym after the Sixers were eliminated from the playoff but he has been seen hanging out with British TV host Maya Jama at Wimbledon.

NBA fans had some pretty interesting reactions to Simmons hanging out with Jama instead of working on his game.
