Lol. Let's see what his 3 point % is. Probably will be scared to shoot jumpers in games like he was in college.

I think Ben Simmons is gonna have a crazy year.. Just gotta stay healthy. Him and embiid could be a killer combo (as well as fultz) but they need to stay on the court

i dont trust his shot at all... he shouldnt be shooting with the hand he shoots with.

not at all... He is one of the highest rated prospects we have seen and would have probably gone 1 this year as well... he has the size but also the passing ability of ball and the one thing that has been his negative he spent the entire year working on and it looks damn good.. Now I dont trust it but it looks a hell of a lot better than it was. Its relevant. I dont care who wasnt guarding him he just dropped 9 of 9 from beyond the 3 with a brand new release.

So seriously, do you have any idea how irrelevant it is to make shots while unguarded?

I've made 90/100 3 pointers numerous times, and my current record for consecutive 3s made is 39. It's literally not hard when unguarded.

Your shooting percentage is cut by more than half give or take in a game vs in practice.

You can literally find YouTube videos of average NBA shooters hitting 15+ 3s in a row.

Curry had a video where he made 70 some in a row...

Haha, damn if this ain't the truth! I think this and the love for Ball is more easily viewed without hater/homer glasses. In all honesty it's just the summer, no actual NBA action. None of it really matters...I mean Mitchell is the next DPOY if summer league/shooting drills actually mean anything haha. We'll see in a few months what's up with these guys.

One thing? The guy cant make a layup, played a low motor game in college, and often looked like he didn't care. the 3 isn't his only worry.

With a really slow release. You think he'll have a couple seconds to set up in an actual game?

You are considering his shot fixed after he made a video of him draining a few 3's. This is like when Celtics fans got excited that Marcus Smart posted a video a couple weeks ago of him draining 35 FT shots. Lets see it consistently at the NBA stage first before we start getting excited over anything.

It's like you deny the existence of point forwards like Giannis and LeBron who use their ball-handling and size to get to the rim at will. Neither could shoot all that well when they came into the league Giannis still can't. That has never stopped them from scoring. I'm not saying Simmons will be on their level, but he has the tools to be. And he's surrounded by players who can shoot.

Ben is not a prefect compliment to a 7 footer with that should be able to dominate in the post and a big interior scorer is not a prefect compliment to Ben. Ben needs an open lane and the wings around Joel should be able to shoot. when you say Batman and Robin guys are supposed to fit easy. as for the Bron Giannis comparison both guys are awesome finishers with high motors. Ben hasn't shown to be either. Maybe he turns out to be that good and talent overtakes fit but the guy doesn't look it

This is why this area is so damn annoying.. youd think they would actually read the OP and not just flame red because its the sixers.

I dont give a crap if he drained 50 of 50... its all about the release and shooting motion...

Funny thing about all the Lonzo love and Ben hate, is that Simmons is just a much better version of Ball.

What do they both do best. Passing. But Simmons is the much bigger and better athlete, and has more potential as a shooter due to his good form. I'll take a low confidence shooter with great form over a high confidence shooter with garbage form any day. At 7 feet (he's grown) if it wasn't for Fultz, he was going to start at PG and be better than Lonzo there.

I'm still hoping that the 76ers can move Okafor + Saric for Prozingas. He'd be a perfect fit with Fultz, Simmons, and Embiid. And I actually think the Knicks would be better off with Okafor and Saric.

this is 100 percent my point... i wasnt a simmons guy because of his shot and defense... funny its exactly why I think ball will bust unless he fixes said shot... Simmons has the benefit of size/speed that ball doesnt.

I am not the biggest simmons fan.. I am glad he fixed his shot but please enlighten me how ball is better? They have the same issues... both guys at one point have a horrid shooting motion and lack defense... Simmons can do everything else ball can do but better and has size and speed and length..... Both could bust hell if i know but I cant see any argument for ball over simmons... if there was a redraft nobody in their right mind takes ball over simmons.
