Ben Simmons remains one of the best playmakers in the entire NBA.
And if we're being honest, it's a part of his game that is all-too-easily cast aside when debating the merits of the towering point guard.
In his third season with the Philadelphia 76ers, the 6'10" Simmons is in the hunt for a second consecutive All-Star appearance and while his efforts on the defensive end have helped mould him into a far more complete two-way player, it's the passing which remains perhaps the most remarkable skill in the bag.

At the midway point of the regular season, Simmons is dishing out a career-high 8.4 assists per game which ranks fifth in the NBA behind only LeBron James, Ricky Rubio, Luka Doncic and Trae Young. On a team which at times can appear offensively shipwrecked and starved for any semblance of on-the-ball playmaking, Simmons has almost single-handedly kept Philadelpia ranked inside the top 5 in assist percentage and assists per game.
But where do all of those assists go?
Who is the biggest beneficiary?
And how spread out are they over the course of a game?
We pulled out every single one of his dimes this season to take a closer took and go beyond the basics to help visualize just how Simmons is creating offence for the 76ers.
Poke around and interact with each of his assists to gain a far greater appreciation for his otherworldly ability.
