NBA 2018/19 Ben Simmons is ROTY. MEGA THREAD!


#203

What a finish to the WOLVES THUNDER game

Melo hits the winner, no time-outs run it down 4 seconds Wiggins pulls up for the game winning 3


#204

Lakers are hot garbage

ALSO HOW DOES A STARTING SG ADRIAN ROBERTSON AIR BALL 2 FTS IN A ROW

that would of been then of the night son, if I was coach


#205

Andre Roberson is who you’re referring to. I think Adrian Robertson is some kind of tax accountant operating out of West Coburg.

It’s always been pretty baffling to me how professional basketball players can be so bad at the line… I guess their focus is more on the other parts of their game but… come on… I suspect somehow their arm muscles don’t work like mine do.

Also on the coaching situation in Phoenix, see below. Complete clean out. Sarver renowned as a long time reactive a**hole.


#206

Bledsoe sent home. Doesn’t expect to play for Suns again


#207

Sigh


#208

Thank you Suns.
Anything to take some attention away from my rabble of an organisation


#209

I really think Delly would be a perfect fit at the Suns, plays great D and can play off the ball, so Booker can handle the point…


#210

Simmons flirting with a trip double half way through 4th.


#211

He got it


#212

Simmons with 21/12/10 with a minute to go.
I have been really impressed with his defence as well. He is going to be a superstar.


#213

Ben Simmons

Most consecutive double doubles as a rookie since Shaq

First Aussie to ever get a trip dub

First player to ever get 10/10/5 in their first 4 games of Nba

WOW


#214

Is he really an Aussie though, or was he just born here while his dad was playing NBL and then learnt his basketball in the US?

Who will he play for in the Olympics?


#215

Being an Aussie, how long before he’s branded DIRTY AND TOO ROUGH.


#216

No only is he a keen Aussie who’ll play for the Boomers, he’s a Bombers supporter too. Lot to like about him.


#217

Well he was born here and moved at age 15/16 to better develop his game. He is very strong on being an Aussie though. Noted he will be playing for Australia in next Olympics.


#218

Forget Ben… The Suns won!!!
Sacked coach bounce! However I did prefer his rotations to Watsons


#219

Nearly all those Americans who made the NBL great in the 90’s like Fisher, Bruton, Smith, Simmons etc became Australian permanent residents.


#220

Fair enough. I thought he left when he was very young.


#221

Actually the rookie ruck Smith at Brisbane is the son of Calvin.


#222

Actually the first influx of Americans to play basketball occurred in the 1970’s. It was the band of teachers imported to Australia that included basketballers like Goorjian. Had two American teachers in primary school who were damn fine teachers.
