In a recent podcast with Zach Lowe, JJ Redick shared his thoughts about seeing Ben Simmons draining jump shots in various pick-up games that were featured on various social media channels.

Ben Simmons actively worked on improving his jump shot and a few recent videos of him playing a pick-up game seem to prove it.

"The video that went viral, he is shooting with confidence. I'm such a curmudgeon when it comes to these videos in the offseason. I don't buy them. I watch 'em and I'm like that's just awful basketball a lot of times"

Even though Redick is still not sold on Simmons jump shooting ability, he did say he works hard at it and that it's only a matter of time until he will be able to shot.

"Ben works. He worked all of last season. I've witnessed him getting shots up after practice this season. I think he will be able to shot at some point and a lot of its just confidence. He can shot it at high enough clip when he is shooting spot shots so it should translate at some point to shooting threes in a game. "
