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


#403

Lonzo first career triple double


#404

Good effort from him.


#405

He would want to play Bledsoe every game


#406

Youngest player ever to record a triple double.

Even younger than Bron.

#411

Has there ever been a more confident rookie?

He looks like he owns the court already.


#412

Seriously. He is a freak


#413

is that even legal?


#414

Seriously not enough hype about him in this country.


#415

Fact


#416

#417

Those highlights are taking the ■■■■!! Wow.

Doesn’t even need to shoot jumpers, just dunk on everyone.


#418

and he is improving at a crazy rate. That game was tight and he stepped up and lead the way. Huge from a rookie. Who was the last rookie to have that sort of impact?


#419

I loved how he was constantly in Griffins ear giving him lip. Rookies probably shouldn’t do that in their first hand full of games but he just backs it up.


#420

LBJ


#421

Shaq and Lebron’s rookie seasons are close to on par for me.
Both were causing crazy defensive headaches for the opposition and carrying their teams fortunes like very few others before them.

Question…
Has any other player had Ben Simmons foot fracture injury in the past? I thought it was a James Hird type injury but Ben is not showing any signs of it being a problem.


#422

I think he had a ‘Jones Fracture’ which from memory is a busted bone in the outside toe where the toe bones connect to the foot bone. Durant had one too.

The navicular injury that Hird had is further back and is notoriously difficult to treat, often career ending. I think Bartel had one as well, ditto that kid from Melbourne who is now at port
