    Re-Upload: Needed to fix one of the stats
    Ben Simmons lack of shooting isn't new, but the way teams have been defending him has evolved to allow his man to really get in the way of the Sixers offense and they need to do something about it.

    I have confidence in Ben becoming more of an all around offensive player. I compare him to a young Magic. Even though the 3-pointer debuted in his (Magic) rookie year, he was not a good jump shooter outside of 10'!!! Actually in his fourth season his 3-point % was 0%. Magic was more aggressive (Kareem was already a solidified veteran vs Joel being young like Ben) he had better options after Kareem i.e Worthy

          Simmons bum ass had the entire off season to develop just a hint of a jumper to keep guys honest. Ben Simmons = zero fucks given. Pathetic

            Frank Vogel up for grabs and we stick with Brett brown smh!! Brett might as well be the next scotty Brooks (but worse). Runs no real offense outside high p&r. Shows no willingness to adjust on the fly. I want a coach who controls his team. Not a team who controls its coach.

                        Giannis does not have good shooting ability too , but he is MVP this season and lead top team . This is just Ben’s 2nd season , I do believe he is gonna dominate this league still .

                            Ben Simmons really doesn't have any game whatsoever. Can't shoot , no pull up game. can dribble but horrible on the break, does not have pace to his non existent game. Basketball is more than just having hops. More than likely, He wont learn how to have a potent offensive attack because takes years to develop. This is on his previous coaches and the people who taught him Basketball as a kid.

                              They are making him to become a point guard, and that is not what he is, too bad that number 1 pick didnt pan out.

                              If Ben Simmons doesn't develop a jump shot, he'll become one of the biggest disappointments in basketball.

                              How this guy won the rookie of the year still blows my mind , Donovan mitchell should be the real ROTY , much wholesome player who can post shot for his size , Simmons is trash

                                That and the simple definition of rookie should have excluded Simmons. This isn't college with some redshirt year bullshit. You get injured oh well don't punish true first year players.

                                    I've always said they should try Ben as a center and have Joel play the power forward the way Tim Duncan (who was actually a center) did. Spurs had tremendous success by moving Tim to the 4. It created mismatches every night. Ben can learn to post up until he develops a shot and then have TJ or Reddick play the point. Boom. Problem solved.
