Told everyone... We are basically treating the regular season like practice... I said all year long this when we were using fultz... Wins/losses are meaningless for us... we know the weaknesses and we need them fixed and we have had the season to do it. :shrug:

That lack of shooting from Simmons is what, according to Brown, prompted a discussion between the coach and his star point guard in the 24 hours leading up to Sunday's game. Brown, who likes to break Philadelphia's season into thirds, said he and Simmons discussed how they could use the final third of the season -- which began Sunday for the now 36-20 Sixers -- to prepare Simmons for the playoffs.

So Brett Brown decided to wait until the last 3rd of the season to work on Ben Simmons’ biggest issue? That sounds like a great plan!

I must say I love your confidence in thinking he’ll magically be able to shoot a 3. This reminds me of when DeRozan started jacking up more 3’s and Raptor fans thought he was getting better when really he was just taking the shots and missing.

Hahaha, this is definitely thread worthy. Jesus Christ, it was hideous and he missed. Big deal.

what Ben and the rest of the 76ers have to prepare for come playoff time. Look how crazy LBJ was sagging off Ben yesterday. When the game slow down in the playoffs and 76ers have to run the half court offense, this could be a big problem. LBJ is roaming and daring Ben to drive. Good thing they got Tobias, another really good scorer who can score off or on the ball to help this weakness. Dude seems like he has been the missing piece the last 2 games, there offense especially when its running looks unstoppable.

I cant wait to watch Ben continue to shoot and I hope for Ben and the 76ers he can make a few of these and make the defender come up a little bit and open up the cutting lanes for the rest of that team

Yeah I don't think Simmons can do anything in a slow down game with LeBron on him. I will give him credit I think he has done a much better job bullying guys to his spots this year. He seems to play a much more physical style, is using some post foot work, and a little jump hook type shot on offense this year. Seems he is able to get to spots he likes against more defenders in the 1/2 court. Still when matched a against a sagging defender he can't bully at all like LeBron I could definitely see his lack of a shot stagnating the Sixers.

agreed. i have been impressed with that as well. Its not pretty but its getting more effective and thats all that really matters.

but its also the reason why Embiid has to be at the 3pt line so much lol

I know people complain about that but if you want to have guys drive the lane sometimes the 7'2 guy can't have 2 feet in the paint. That'd be true even if Simmons could shoot

Watching a player as obscenely good as Simmons get nutered simply with a defender backing off like that is just sad.

Aside from this:
I think another way they are prepping came from the trades. Harris and Butler means we have two guys who can handle and create on the perimeter. I think we’re going to see more post Simmons and pick man Simmons.
