Maybe now the internet will leave Ben Simmons alone. Maybe.
The 2017-18 Rookie of the Year hit his first 3-pointer in his 172nd career regular-season game Wednesday for the Philadelphia 76ers against the New York Knicks, sending Wells Fargo Center and the NBC Sports Philadelphia play-by-play crew into bedlam.

Simmons hit his first ever 3-pointer in an NBA game (of any kind) Oct. 8 during a preseason contest against the Guangzhou Long-Lions, but he now has one on his career stat sheet.
The 76ers point guard is averaging 13.7 points, six rebounds and 7.1 assists on 56.9 percent shooting in 11 games this season.
