Bar argument with friends over the future of Ben Simmons. I’ll highlight the points and then statethe hypothesis. * A guard who can’t shoot a 3 isn’t the same as a guard who *never* makes a 3PA. * Ben Simmons is as good as he looks, his strengths are exceptional. * We would still rather have harden, westbrook, irving hands down—simmons is not top 8 and he might be losing ground on every guard who continues to better their game. Future outlook, if it becomes trendy to groom oversized guards without the expectation of even *attempting* long range shots then I don’t think it’ll be hard to find 20 intellogent guards who can pass and defend—who also possess sub-par to terrible shooting skills. It’ll be a short time before a “better” ben simmons is groomed and drafted, for example a guy who can defend ben simmons and shoot more than one 3pt per lunar calendar. Is this wrong? Will ben simmons become great **before** his skill-set is neutralized or more commonplace?
>We would still rather have harden, westbrook, irving hands down How can you say something so controversial yet so brave?
you really love to see it
Ben Simmons is ALREADY great lol
What in the fuck
this is written like a college essay
They usually have a modicum of intelligent though at least
it doesnt have to make sense, it just has to sound smart if you dont think about it too hard
Celtics wont even make the conference finals.
Coming from a fan of the team who might not even make the playoffs with the best player in the world lol
Op you should know by now this sub isnt for basketball discussion. Like holy shit these comments
LMAO. Youâ€™re not lying, one comment refers to ben simmons.
Ill get downvoted to hell for this but I dont think The 76ers will ever reach their max potential with Simmons on the team and I would trade him for a better fit with the Embiid/Harris/Butler core while his value is still insanely high.
