Consider this a look at what might have been this past season. Or a look into what will be next season.
Philadelphia has shut No. 1 pick Ben Simmons down for the season as they wait for the Jones fracture in his foot to heal properly, but he is traveling with the team and working out on its current road trip. Before the game in Indianapolis, Simmons got in a workout on the court.
Then casually threw down a between-the-legs, off the backboard self alley-oop.
What does that mean? Nothing. Other than next season in Philadelphia could be a lot of fun.
