Kobe to Ben Simmons: Rebuild jump shot

Kobe to Ben Simmons: Rebuild jump shot”

Ben Simmons might be doing pretty well for himself, consistently showing off his skills on the court, but Kobe Bryant still thinks there's a key area that still needs improving on.

Kobe Bryant has been reviewing tape of some of the young talents throughout the National Basketball Association and giving his opinion on their game and what needs work moving forward.

Ben Simmons is having a miserable time playing the Boston Celtics.

"For one thing, you have to stop letting him go left", Bryant said.

He says that, while it's not what's all to blame for the 76ers recent loss, it's something that needs to be thought about going forward.

"Just aesthetically, I would say build that thing anew", Bryant said in a FOX Sports interview.

"I don't think the game came down to that though", Bryant said of Simmons' shooting.

Simmons should take Bryant's advice to heart if he wants to take the next step in the National Basketball Association.

Whether James' next playoff opponent - likely the Boston Celtics - heeds Bryant's advice remains to be seen, but Kobe's tip seems as good a starting point as any.

Throughout the course of the regular season, Simmons ended up shooting 54.5 percent from the field overall. Being unable to shoot the perimeter jumper made things hard on Simmons. The Pacers failed to stop him in their first-round series against the Cavs, and the Raptors, down 3-0 in their Eastern Conference semifinal series, look destined for a similar fate.

Yet pundits across the league have assured that if Simmons is to leave a lasting legacy he will have to develop a working jump shot.

Whatever Simmons does this offseason with his jumper, watching him in year two will be fascinating.

If he is able to become a threat from behind the arc, defenses will be forced to pick their poison.
