Article Summary:

The importance of Simmons developing some semblance of a jump shot in order for him to reach his full potential as a player, and for the Sixers to reach their full potential as a team, has been well documented. At one point during the season, Sixers head coach Brett Brown even thought about benching Simmons if he continued to refuse to shoot.

“Some people put so much emphasis on it,” Simmons said of his shot. Perhaps the extended break has given Simmons an opportunity to work on his shot, both physically and mentally, and maybe he will finally be more willing to pull the trigger if and when play is ultimately resumed.
