The LSU Tigers have known for a while that they have a special player in star freshman Ben Simmons. Since before he signed his scholarship to play for the Tigers, Simmons has been slated to be the number one overall pick in next year’s NBA Draft.
He is now proving why he is not only an athlete, but that he is freakishly strong as well. College Basketball Talk shared a video of Simmons and teammate Kevin Hornsby working together to push a Chevrolet Suburban.
What a way to get a good workout on. I know a lot of people will probably say that the truck is in neutral, making it that much easier to push the vehicle around, but it’s still a two-ton Suburban.
Now, pushing a truck and showing off your raw athleticism doesn’t mean you are going to be a top talent in the college basketball world, but it will sure intimidate some opponents. I’m sure Simmons will have no problem playing strong in the post this season.
