Simmons just posted another triple doubles against the Heat.
18pts, 12 rbs, 10ass, 4 steals. He is a beast.
He won the game without Embiid too.

Regardless of who wins, Simmons lack of shooting scares me. Will he ever develop a jump shot and a 3 point shot? I think Mitchell has shown fit stretches he can be consistently efficient. He's not like Hood who only has 1-2 efficient games in a row. Mitchell only has a bad game occasionally and that's expected for a rookie.

Wow, Elfrid Payton got one triple double tonight, is he a beast too? How about Mconnell a few games ago, a beast too? Even Lonzo has a couple... what a beast!

Idiot.

He have 124 triples in the season, how many your beast has made? Oh, NVM.
This is just empty stat. He is obviously playing for the ROY award, instead of playing for the team. Therefore he is chucking up 25~30 shots every night, despite his poor shooting %. Very Very selfish player.

So, no threes then? Not a single one? Well, he'll always have that sweet free throw efficiency so important on those close games, right?

He does not need to hit 3s to dominate. Shaq, Olajuwon did'nt hit 3s, but they are hall of famers. Shaq also was a bad free throw shooter, but he is an all time great.

So, now Simmons is a center, good to know. Tell me something, your mother was standing when she drop you off, or she climbed on a ladder and then she dropped you off? Ladder, right?

Oh so Simmons dominates the paint? No. Simmons hardly plays in the post and never gets contested boards. Those comparisons are terrible except that Simmons equally sucks at shooting like them.

Stats say the most comparable player in NBA history to Simmons is MCW so far. Simmons is better at something's than him but worse at shooting.

That is only your opinion which is bordering on ridiculous and insane. MCW will never be a star, Ben will be future Mvps, hall of famer
and top 5 player in the NBA.
On the other hand, Most people who have some sense comapared Ben to Magic and Lebron, which are the most appropriate comparisons considering the unique set of skills Simmons has.

Which NBA stars have Ben as ROY?
Just a theory but I think they view the 2 differently.

DM is super fun to watch with incredible game and CLUTCH af! But... not viewed as a threat to their title aspirations.

Simmons on the other hand is going to be a road block for the next decade for anyone wanting a ring in the East. You dont hand out praise to guys like that.
