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


#683

Simmons needs some shooting range.


#684

Cavs accuracy from downtown down the stretch killed the Sixers.

2 points in the last 4:41 for the Sixers. Not good enough. Lose by 7 (98-105).


#685

Fark we were pathetic today


#686

Portland are the Essington Of the NBA.


#687

Nah, Cavs have better depth. 5 on 5 it would have been the 76ers tonight


#688

Booker big for the Sixers tonight. Like him as a pick up


#689

Philly is Essington. They just let teams destroy them in a short period and take the game away from them.


#690

Got the dunk but it’s crazy he’s that open and still doesn’t want to shoot.


#691

You have a hard time rationalising this don’t you?

In the 80’s and 90’s tones of guys were like that, Jordan initially, Dominique, Kidd.

He scored 27 still. It’s not a massive problem. I saw a stat showing that Reddick is getting the most looks he has had his entire career. Defences collapse to the paint as soon as Simmons gets it leaving shooters open everywhere.

Getting a jump shot will open up the driving lanes for Ben, sure. But right now his driving ability opens up shots for the whole team and he is that good a passer it’s not a problem.


#692

When you need someone to hit a 3 in the dying minute of a game, don’t want it in simmons hands.


#693

I’m 37. I’ve been playing basketball since I was 6 and watching it since the days of NBA action after video hits.

No need to son me thinking you are more knowledgeable about the game.


#694

That’s a case for a large portion of the league.

Plus if you need a score in the dying seconds, I would put it in his hands.

This obsession with 3’s has created a false ideal

I’d have Simmons or Giannis at the spurs in a heartbeat.

They are superstars who can take advantage of lazy post defence because everyone became convinced 3’s are the secret


#695

Bill Woods and Steve Carfino, half hour of highlights then a game of the week.

I’d tune in even if it was Atlanta verse Minnesota.


#696

It’s how I followed the warriors. Run TMC on the NBA action highlights!


#697

I wasn’t saying that. I was just suggesting you have been watching a jump shooting team too long you may have forgotten :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#698

That would have been illegal defence back in the day.
Zone defence wasn’t allowed prior to the mid 90s.


#699

#700

Wow. His passing is amazing, even the receiver has only half a clue what’s coming.

A few minor tweaks to his game, but over the next year’s look out.


#701

Man we are getting murdered at the rim, no calls.


#702

Hahaha Aminu get smashed and its play on.

This is the first GSW game I’ve seen this year, good to see the games are being refereed the same.
