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


#723

Simmons has also now been officially dredited with yesterdays triple double. Now equal with Kidd as the only players to have 4 in their rookie season. Today he will go past him… maybe


#724

What time is it on?


#725

about to go into q4 needing only 1 rebound and 2 assists


#726

If his team mates could shoot, he would have the triple double but looking doubtful now


#727

I’m still buzzing from this win!

Like HOW??!!


#728

that was a rollercoaster.


#729

you see ■■■■ like this and go what a team to watch.

then you see them lose.


#730

They are going to be a great team but still a way to go.


#731

Have to get the basics right

2-8 over the last 10 games

yuck


#732

He will go way past it by seasons end. Ridiculous that he has had 4 already.


#733

Great result for the heat, can’t wait to watch the highlights later.


#734

Simmons winning ROY isn’t a fait accompli.

Mitchell/Kuzma/Tatum right on the level.


#735

Kuzma is the business.


#736

They are really not, they are all awesome don’t get me wrong, but none of them do it across the board like Simmons does. He is still on track to have the best rookie season since Oscar Robertson.

People are taking his 15/9/8 games for granted


#737

Simmons 17.2 / 9.1 / 7.9

Mitchell 17.7 / 3.0 / 3.4

Kuzma 17.4 / 6.6 / 1.6

Tatum 13.8 / 5.7 / 1.4

Markannen 14.3 / 7.9 / 1.3

That’s a pretty big discrepancy - and he’s got the most impressive defensive stats of the class too.
Also keep in mind Simmons has probably been the best player on a team that’s going to improve it’s record by maybe 15 or 20 wins from year to year. It’s not quite a fait accompli but a lot would need to change.


#738

Has he really been their best player? Better than Embiid?


#739

Just slightly no. But the understanding those two have built in such a short time is amazing.


#740

If the vote was now it would definitely be Ben.

I’m just saying that those other guys are playing extremely well, particularly Mitchell. His last 10 games are like 24ppg at 50/40/90 levels and leading the team to win

A lot can change post-ASB. Rooks tend to get tired and drop off.


#741

I was just looking at basketball reference stats http://bkref.com/tiny/UjdUU and then saw this article linked from 76ers fansite.

So it’s definitely not me taking notice of the other rookies recent play.

It’s great that we’ve got a good rookie race.


#742

Another day, another game where simmons teammates brick a handful of 3s in a row late in the 4th.
