This kid is phenomenal. I'm not saying he's the next LBJ, but damn, he looks spectacular.

43, 14, 7 and 5 blocks tonight. His all around game has been outstanding.


How good can this dude be? Honestly think he'd be ROY if he played in the NBA right now

Imagine if the lakers get him to go with Randall and Russell. Think KD would sign there??

Honestly probably not, I think KD wants to win now, and we're still far from getting into the playoffs. I think it'd be awesome though lol. We will have a ton of cap-space.

I wish we could get Simmons

Simmons/Oka/Noel/Saric/Durant/Covington/DeRozan/Embiid

DYNASTY.

Number 4 pick/11-15 pick and 16-22 pick in the draft as well.

There's actually no worse team for Simmons than Philly if you think about it. At least as long as Oka + Noel and/or Embiid are part of their plans. Simmons can't shoot, he can't be on the court with two other bigs who also can't shoot.

It would be kind of cool to see the Pelicans get him, make AD the full time center and run Simmons as the point forward. The rest of the team would have to be gutted to fit those two, but wow what a combo that would be.

If the Lakers got him, they'd indeed have a pretty solid core to grow with.

That being said, I would like to see him go to Philly. He has T-Mac written all over him.

Report: 76ers rumored to be trading J. Okafor to the Lakers for their unprotected 2016 1st rd pick after seeing B. Simmons monster game.

2016 Adam Silver: With the 1st pick in the 2016 NBA draft....the Sacramento Kings select Ben Simmons.

Apparently you are unaware if the Kings pick is top 10 and higher than the Sixers pick it's an automatic swap.

tanking should never be rewarded though.

Again, I still hope he ends up in Philly. The NBA is better when they are relevant

First non-Sixers fan I've heard say this in a while.

I'm not going to go on a 'we deserve this' or 'we've earned it' rant or anything like that. But I feel like we've gotten screwed long enough that it's about time the odds were in our favor. Two #3 picks, one yet to see the court, one being a bone head, trading an all star for a douchbag (Bynum), Jimmy Butler all ready to visit onlt to have the Reinsdorf's have a last second change of heart.

And another thing on something related:
As much as people want to say teams don't like us because of what we got in trade values, and contracts offered, and otherwise....how many times have we taken on bad contracts to help a team sign a FA or been the third team to facilitate a trade?

How does not having the worst record that mean you deserve the top pick?

I think Simmons should refuse to play for any team other than his buddy Bogut's Warriors a la Kobe.

i think he is the perfect fit for the Blazers. Im a little (very little) critical of Simmons and his not shooting 3's and the worry that he cant shoot but put him on the Blazers with CJ and Lillard who can stroke it while Simmons can handle it and distribute better then either guard.

lol you do know that the Sixers get the Kings pick if its inside the top 10 right?

It isn't an outright get, it's swap if the Kings pick is higher. I think it's 2019 it's unprotected if the 2 swaps haven't occurred.

Rights to swap that pick was traded to Denver back in the melo trade, so when we traded the pick to Toronto, Denver still has the option to swap picks. We wouldve never walked out of there with a top 3 pick or 5 even unless denver somehow picks higher

The NBA is always better when the Lakes/Sixers/Knicks are good. While I despise the Lakers, I also understand they are great for the NBA. Sixers are as well, on a smaller scale. Philly is a huge basketball city. I wouldn't be opposed to Simmons ending up in Philly at all.

My dream is obviously to have the Wolves jump up and grab the #1 pick, basically completing the future contender haha, but that ain't happening

I don't follow college sports, but the last time I saw this kind of buzz was in 2003. So that says a lot, I'll admit my interest has been peaked, I'm keeping an eye on Simmons.

Simmons was a teammate of D'angelo Russell in high school. That team wore purple and gold. His college team wears purple and gold. His pro team wears.....

There's also this...

He couldn't but he became a very good shooter. Simmons could to. Its all about putting time in the gym.

They did not go to the same High School. Montverde is not a regular High School. It is a team for a lot of the National players from their original High School. The Sixers have 5 players that played there, and two with Simmons himself.

But is there video of him saying "catch me on the Sixers next year"? No. Simmons has spoken and the basketball gods should just let it be. :)
