Giannis and Ben Simmons play very similar games. They both play what I call a Point Foward. They both are almost 7 feet. They pass a lot, drive to the paint a lot, get lots of dunks. Theres just one big difference, Giannis has an okay jumper while Ben Simmons jumper is nonexistent. Is Giannis everything Ben Simmons wishes he was?
I sure Simmons wishes he was LBJ
yeah i think Lebron is more the guy he looks too or Magic. Giannis is more of a scorer than Simmons who has more of a passers mindet
Simmons has a passing mindset right now, but I think he would rather be 1st option scorer on his own team.
I sure also
having Giannis freak gifts is nice but Lebron tier fame/success and money is just on another level
Simmons wishes he missed the playoffs?
No I think he wishes he had 4 MVPs and was one of the freakiest athletes of all time.
Youre trying too hard.
Quit it troll. You did this with Westbrook and Lillard yesterday
Giannis doesnt just have a jumper over Simmons. Giannis is A LOTTTT better than Ben Simmons in almost everything except passing.
Giannis is obviously a more valuable player than Simmons, but passing is a really important skill and Simmons is WORLDS better. And Simmons can probably guard a certain style of player better than Giannis can. Thats about it tho.
Worlds better is strong because Simmons jump shot limits his passing abilities in the half-court. Simmons needs shooters around him (like Lebron) to reach his full potential because lets be honest, he is not developing a jumpshot.
Ben is still in his 2nd yr lol he’s nowhere near a finished product. Giannis has been in the league, what 6 years?
And yet Giannis is only 1.5 year older than Simmons
i woundnt say that its Giannis jumper that sets him apart. Both were projected as SF sized beasts in transition. Where Simmons embraced the guard aspects. Where as Giannis embrace more of the big man aspects
I think its just Giannis is much better athletically and is much longer, makes it easier for him to score in the paint
Plus Giannis has just way more touch around the basket too
That last part is really accurate
I mean Giannis is everything that almost every player in the league wishes they could be
.. I"m not even a player and I wish I was what Giannis is
im not even a human and i wish i was giannis
I mean Id even settle for being as good as TJ MCConnell
Like who? Most people have a style of play thats completely different from Giannis to where "wishing" to be him wouldnt make sense.
Pretty sure every player in the NBA wishes they had Giannis’s body/physical gifts
ben has a style thats completely different than giannis - the only similarity is that both are tall, athletic, and cant shoot. The main difference is ben is a pass first PG and giannis is the best scorer on his team
Giannis is just flat out better than Ben. This feels a lot like when people were trying to force the PG and LeBron comparisons because they were both 6’8” SFs
I was just getting into the NBA when that was a popular comparison and now that I have been a fan for awhile and know more about them that comparison is just silly. They play the game in different ways and the talent difference is significant.
People made those comparisons? Lol I dont remember that
Giannis has been in the league 3 years longer and is two years older. You cant be comparing players that dont have nearly the same experience.
Is Ben Simmons everything Donovan Mitchell wishes he was? Or is he happy being an inefficient chucker who will always hold his team back?
man thats not the only difference theres iq, theres determination, theres so much more simmons is just coasting out there afraid to do anything that he might fail at
Ben Simmons has insane Basketball IQ to make up for his lack of real life IQ.
if he had insane basketball iq do you think he might have figured out that taking shots, even if they miss most of the time, would be an advisable thing to do?
This sounds like a Colin Cowherd take. Giannis is better than Ben because he’s bigger stronger and more athletically gifted. Also has the ability to shoot somewhat. It’s not about “determination” or “iq”. That’s just a dumb take
So Giannis is better because he’s put freaking work into the gym and his shot....
Your take sounds like a Colin Cowherd take, sounds like when people would say LBJ is just good because hes athletic while ignoring that it takes a high bbiq to be an MVP level player.
I’m going to kill myself if the Nets win tonight
Shit I’d like to be everything Giannis is also
They are very different players though.
And all the rats come out to take the bait
Is Giannis dating a VS Angel?
The anti-Simmons circle jerk is getting out of hand.. Hes still young. And hes great already. Hell only get better.
Ben Simmons is in his second season in the league, give me a break with all these hot takes
Simmons didnt improve his body the way Giannis did when he entered the league. He wont be doing what Giannis does without the same strength. So, no. He does not want to be Giannis.
I think we are forgetting this is Ben’s second year playing, and it’s Giannis’ 6th year... Giannis averaged 12 points and 2 assists per game his second year, lets relax
Giannis was a kid who hadn’t been playing basketball for that long with no exposure to the NBA, adjusting to a new country and barely spoke English Simmons is older , the son of a pro player , went to elite prep schools & camps and has had high-le
I’ve been thinking this
Well they say the only thing longer than Giannis’s last name is his dick, so probably
I mean I think theres more than one big difference, the bigger difference is that Giannis has limbs like slender men and simmons wing span isnt nearly as nuts. Plus Giannis is 10x more athletic.
OP, stay off the WEEEEEEDDD....DUH
Pretty sure he wants to win a chip so until Giannis does that then no
Come get your nephew, Utah
Simmons wishes he could shoot outside of 3 feet
