Ben Simmons TO Quadruple Double

10 turnovers this game so far. He's played good but its been sloppy. Is he overrated?

He is proportionately valued.

He is proportionately valued. If he had a jumper he would be an mvp.

Couldn't agree more. He definitely is valuable, but people seem to forget it's his second season in the NBA. He's still figuring things out. Definitely needs that jumper though...

Fyi Simmons fell short of a

Fyi Simmons fell short of a turnover quadruple double as according to ESPN he had 9 turnovers. He did manage the traditional triple double with 25 points, 15 rebounds, and 11 assists. He also had 3 steals. Definitely not his best night on the assist to turnover ratio, but I've seen MVPs have far worse nights... some of which were in playoff games.

Guess they gave someone else

Guess they gave someone else the one I thought was his 10th.

That play at the end of the game has me scratching my head though. Down 2 points at the free throw line and he intentionally missed the free throw and missed the rim. Game over.

Brett Brown said he had Simmons attempt to miss the free throw. There was 10 seconds left and they were out of timeouts.

Simmons is a 22 y/o PG leading a historic franchise in Phila

to their first back to back 50+ Win seasons since 1985 & 86' - this is a Phila team that just a few years ago was a 10 win team!

This past Weekend Simmons led a severely undermanned Phila team to a road win in OKC & took the defending Champion Golden State Warriors to the wire w/ Back to back Triple doubles & he was Dominant defensively & Embiid missed Both games

And your saying he's over rated b/c he had 9 TO's & doesn't take Jump shots - But his FG% on the year is 57%!!!

Simmons is Dominant on the glass, on Def, passing, never misses games & is playing the toughest position on the sport which is basically the team's QB & Simmons is Averaging 17 pts 9 Rebounds & 8 Assists per game - that is Insane!

Simmons is not known for scoring but If I told you that Simmons scores More points per game than Jason Tatum & Pascal Siakam would you believe me???

Well it's true - & he does it on WAY fewer shots! The skill Simmons is Worst at & he is Still Better at it than 2 of the other top young players in the conference. Simmons is one of the most Consistent players in the entire NBA & he's 22! He's improved in Every category from year one to year two

Where Simmons needs to improve is Free Throw shooting - Simmons teammates on the starting Unit are JJ Reddick, Jimmy Butler, Toby Harris & Joel Embiid --- ALL 4 are Elite scorers but you want Simmons to Ball Hog & shoot 3's & tale J's b/c why exactly???

I know this is Not going to happen so no disrespect to Phila fans but here in Laker Nation we are having Wet Dreams that Simmons will refuse his extension, become a free agent & join the Lake Show in 2021 b/c this kid is just going to keep growing as a Star

Nice post but how bout this.

Nice post but how bout this. Simmons sucks. In two years Siakam and Tatum will be viewed as much better players maybe even next year when Irving and Leonard leaves. Philly's never gonna go nowhere with Simmons unless he improves his jumper and thats not gonna happen.

Bro did Ben Scrizzle steal your girl? Why the emotion?

We'll see what happens next year or the year after but if Leonard & Irving leave Siakam & Tatum will get a tase of what Simmons has been dealing w/ since day one

And that is the responsibility of winning 50+ games a year for a rabbid franchise w/ No Veteran All Stars to bail him out

And if Tatum & Siakam - both of whom I luv as players - do a great job I will SAY they did a great job & if they grow past Simmons I will Say they are better than Simmons

B/c I don't have some kind of weird emotional resentment against a player I don't even know but as of Right now - this season - it't Not close - Simmons has Way more responsibility & is Way better

A lot of people have a sliding scale when it comes to Simmons --- 25 y/o Siakam gets to be a young developing player --- 21 y/o Tatum - who has Regressed this season - gets to be a young developing player -- but Simmons for some reason is 22 but does Not get to be a young developing player - he's compared to 10 year Vets & he's pretty close already & it drives people Nuts --- Why???
