Philadelphia 76ers youngster Ben Simmons is in the midst of what has to be described as a frustrating sophomore season.
When frustrated, why not take it out on an opposing player? New York Knicks forward Noah Vonleh found out the answer to this question in a resounding way Wednesday evening.
With Philadelphia up six midway through the third quarter, Simmons drove on Vonleh. What resulted was a combination of a highlight-reel play from Simmons and some embarrassment on the part of his counterpart.

The skeptic in us will call this a push off. But what fun would that be? Simmons is obviously showing that he’s hit the weight room.
Meanwhile, Vonleh got a view of the monster dunk from his back end. That’s never a good thing.
