Ben Simmons is spending a lot of time in the gym leading up to the draft which is good. Unfortunately, a chunk of that time seems to be dedicated to working on trick shots with his feet, which is cool, but not super helpful during a game.

Earlier this week, Simmons impressed by nailing a three after stylishly kicking the ball up to himself, and on Thursday he took his hands out of the equation all together, nailing a shot from long distance with just his foot.

If the NBA gets rid of kicked ball violations this offseason, Simmons will be a shoo-in for the Rookie of the Year award.
