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


#523

Simmons will be a star when he learns to defend.


#524

He is actually pretty good already, he is in the top 20 in the league for defensive RPM

11 in the league for steals too


#525

I don’t think that’s the issue and philly.


#526

The process gets lost on his man, surprisingly a lot.

From the games I have watched this season, feel like I am watching pick up style basketball - bring it down the 3/4 court - then some d is applied, kick the ball around and drive/corner 3. I am sure this will settle down as the season progresses.


#527

And when he gets a jump shot. Last night he scored all his point within 5 yards of the basket. The one mid-range jumper he had was almost an air ball. But geez, for s 6’10" player, he can do a lot with the ball.

76ers now selling Four N Twenty pies.


#529

Why?

Do they have an Australian player?


#530

Lonzo with an awesome triple double against the Nugg’s to get us the W.

Having watched every game so far this year, he is improving game on game.

Kuzma and Ingram the best of the young kids so far IMO.


#531

Tatum?


#532

I was only referring to the Lakers.

Simmons, Tatum, Markenen and even Smith Jr even have them covered by a bit at the moment.


#533


Jumpshot seems to be coming along judging by this


#534

Even Donovan Mitchell


#535

Embiid just baited him bad. Such a ■■■■ talker :smiley:


#536

Career high in points (27) for Ben


#537

and a lazy 10 rebounds and 4 steals


#538

22 rebounds for the whole Clippers side so far, Kanter with 13 on his own.
Knicks pulling away now


#539

He should have had another TD, I sear the Sixers bricked on so many open shots in the first half


#540

Tatum is by far the best rookie this class, with Markannen, DSJ and Kuzma behind him


#541

#542

Remember when Kyrie wanted to be no.1 - How salty would Lebron be now? Hope Kyrie sweeps the Cavs

Celtics look special, such a nice young group. Tatum just wow

Good coach - no reason why they can’t have sustained success
