Chasing History: Ben Simmons is only 2,973 three pointers away from breaking Steph Curry’s record
Last night I fired out a tweet after Steph Curry broke the NBA’s all-team three point field goals made record. Curry finally broke the NBA record at Madison Square Garden, after failing to do so against the 76ers over the weekend thanks to Matisse Thybulle’s defensive masterclass.
It was an awesome moment for Curry and NBA fans in general. The guy is still in the prime of his career and if he stays healthy and playing at an elite level, the record may be untouchable when it’s all said and done.
In came the golden opportunity to clown Ben Simmons. Obviously, it was a joke but when you have the opportunity to rag on Ben Simmons’ shooting in Philadelphia these days, you have to make the most of it.
Ben Simmons Chasing History
I really need someone to remind me to turn tweets that blow up into blogs. Honestly, I absolutely hate Twitter and as a marketing guy, blowing up on there means nothing to growing a website or business. Plus, you have a million copycats coming out with Ben Simmons related tweets. Luckily we were on top of it, not that anyone cares or notices who’s first anyways.
Anyways, we really had things clicking on the bird app last night.
Ben Simmons has five total three pointers. As we all know, he currently refuses to play basketball for the Philadelphia 76ers. The entire Ben Simmons saga has been exhausting but with players becoming available today, maybe there will be a move in the near future and Simmons will start shooting the basketball.
I highly doubt that, but having Simmons get traded and then start shooting would be peak Philadelphia. I honestly hope it happens for the sake of content.
Morey has been pretty adamant that he won’t budge on what he expects in return for Simmons, so the idea that some team will be able to get a trade done without what Morey deems equal or greater value is probably not going to happen.
I think we should all ask ourselves another question too. Does Ben Simmons want to play basketball? I think that’s a fair question to ask at this point of the conversation.
