Ben Simmons: LSU’s Aussie Basketballer Star

(Last Updated On: March 3, 2017)

If you’re unfamiliar with LSU freshman power forward Ben Simmons, he’s the potential-and-most-likely No. 1 overall pick in most 2016 NBA Mock Drafts. Yet it’s not his athletically-loaded and juicy scouting report that has GMs and fans everywhere praying for the fluid big man. Instead, it’s his untouched explosion around the hoop. Let’s dive in and see what this kid’s really got..

As the top dog in high school, Ben Simmons didn’t need to try too hard – but even his casual drops (like the one seen below) were silky smooth.

That doesn’t mean he won’t slam, slam again, block a dude, and slam once more..

Well, unsurprisingly, LSU was completely sold and brought on the youngster to run the show. As a freshman, Simmons has done little to disappoint – averaging 18.7 points, 12.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 2 steals and 1.3 blocks per game – cementing himself as a do-everything future NBA lottery pick, if not likely NBA superstar. Few can even keep up at this point..
