Video: Ben Simmons sinks insane half-court shot

The LSU Tigers truly have a special player in freshman Ben Simmons. He has been slated as the possible top pick in the 2016 NBA Draft and he continues to prove why he has been given that distinction.

A video surfaced on Thursday of Simmons showing the entire nation why nobody should ever play horse against him. He made pretty ridiculous one-handed half-court shot that you have to see to believe.

Later on Thursday, Simmons showed off that he can throw down a dunk pretty well too.

This kid is really good and I think he’s going to translate very well into the NBA. As for his freshman season, he and the Tigers are looking to be one of the toughest teams in the country.

The Tigers open the season on November 13 when they host McNeese State.
