yup. and yea IT's wingspan to height ratio is sick, but there's probably plenty of even bigger ratios in the NBA lol. just off the top of my head of players right now, kawhii lenoard. 6'6 without shoes, 7'3 wingspan

One thing to note is that he got ruled out of his real rookie year early with a foot fracture and spent a whole year with all the benefits of an NBA team, training, getting fed right etc. So even though he hadn't played a game before this season, he's more NBA-ready than most rookies. Similar thing happened with Blake Griffin and Embiid.

But yeah, he's a hell of a player - I didn't think he was this athletic. Great passer as well. Technically Australian, so our 2020 Olympic team looks good:

PG: Simmons
SG: Mills
SF: Ingles (possibly a bit old by 2020 but has an old man's game)
PF: Maker
C: Baynes

All starting or solid rotational players in the NBA. Dellavedova and Exum on the bench as well.

australia taking over nba..... simmons, irving both have ties to australia..... both #1 and 2 in the nba imo...... #3 is lebron.....

Long term Simmons has potential and no disrespect to Irving but Lebron is still the king of the league.

im really starting to regret this post.....


if this guy doesn't ever take a jumpshot and just continues to stat stuff..... and make risky no look passes every posession ..... im going to lose all respect .....

he's starting to turn into a deandre jordan with handles and vision.....

does he not understand that when he's not a threat off the ball..... the defense is just going to have it too easy.... fuckin idiot.... guess hes young

total sign of immaturity: afraid to take jump shots is a sign he doesn't want himself to look bad, he wants the world to see how much game he has.....

dam and some of his no look passes aren't even that great even if it's not a turnover, cause his teammates already anticipate them so well and chase them down and by the time they are able to gather from catching it frantically the defense already recovered....

non bball ppl will wooo and ahhh but come on ben, hope he's reading this thread like lebron ;D ;D

From what I read yesterday he is completely reworking his jumpshot so I can imagine his reluctance to take them. Really though, he can basically get to the basket at will so what's a year of not taking jump shots.

This. He's afraid to take jump shots because he lacks confidence in his shooting.

this ^^

everyone needs to chill a bit on Simmons lol, he has plenty of time to improve his jumper & get more confidence in it.

even MJ wasn't confident in his jumper year 1.

only person I remember who was confident in literally every aspect of their game in year 1 and got enough minutes/games to be relevant to this discussion, was AI.. not Lebron, Kobe, Shaq, or MJ... just AI. :ninja:

In the words of Brett Brown himself"

"He's really just scratching the surface to what ultimately he is going to be when we start talking about high level of finishing efficiency, growth of a free throw, the rebuilding of his shot, a comfort level of making and shooting an 18-foot jump shot, those things are still on the horizon,” said Brown, a former Spurs assistant who witnessed that program's ability to markedly improve a player's jumpshot.



I think half the problem is he's so ambidextrous and doesn't really know which hand to favour.

his defender is like a safety off the ball, he doesn't stretch the floor at all. Look at steph curry's defender, he cannot clog the floor or help in anyway and exerts so much energy sticking to him.....

the fact that he can drive any time he wants even when his defender knows it and is back pedalling is just a testament to his explosiveness/length and skill....



i dunno, his shot really isn't that bad mechanically and i don't see why he would lose confidence in it, for someone that has as much touch as he does.....

but yeah, he's def not shooting because he doesn't want to do anything that would jeopardize people's 1st year impression of him, imo

my 2 cents

My friends and I are all big sixers fans and I think they've hyped him up so much that I had to sort of take an opposing side but honestly I'm not a fan of his superstar potential. I do think he'll be a positive impact player and all star because of his can't miss size, athleticism, and passing ability. Personally I just think the pg should have an alpha like mentality and really be able to dictate a games' tempo and while he's competitive and still rookie, I don't know that'll he be elite in those areas. Maybe its just the recent memory of MCW creating a bias but I'm still not sold on that type of pg but obviously Simmons is bigger, more athletic and more talented.

Also, I'm not sure he'll be able to develop a shot at any point, maybe a running push shot like Brook Lopez perfected with the Nets would expand his game and seems more possible. It definitely makes it hard for him to be effective in the 4th quarter and recently they just go to embiid when defenses lock down.

nah if that happened earlier in the series, he'd have responded.

i thought he did some unnecessary dirty stuff earlier on in the series.

but yea he's impressive.
