It’s not really the offseason until we start writing about Sixers players looking great in a gym without any real competition happening. Let’s kick off workout season with a nice dose of Ben Simmons, who posted this Instagram video from the Sixers’ practice facility.

Yes, he’s not doing this in a game, and yes, this is not exactly being done at full speed, but look at how effortless it is for him to rise up and flush the basketball. This is a guy who sat out the entire year with a foot injury, and it doesn’t look like he has lost an ounce of athleticism.

We’ll probably have to wait until at least training camp to see him in a real “live” setting against his teammates, but this is a nice teaser until we can get a more extended look at Simmons in action. And if this doesn’t work, you can always rewatch the highlight mix of his Summer League run.

UPDATE: WE GOT A PART TWO, Y’ALL

Alright last one
