    Re-Upload: Needed to fix one of the stats
    Ben Simmons lack of shooting isn't new, but the way teams have been defending him has evolved to allow his man to really get in the way of the Sixers offense and they need to do something about it.

              Giannis does not have good shooting ability too , but he is MVP this season and lead top team . This is just Ben’s 2nd season , I do believe he is gonna dominate this league still .

                  Ben Simmons really doesn't have any game whatsoever. Can't shoot , no pull up game. can dribble but horrible on the break, does not have pace to his non existent game. Basketball is more than just having hops. More than likely, He wont learn how to have a potent offensive attack because takes years to develop. This is on his previous coaches and the people who taught him Basketball as a kid.

                    They are making him to become a point guard, and that is not what he is, too bad that number 1 pick didnt pan out.

                      How this guy won the rookie of the year still blows my mind , Donovan mitchell should be the real ROTY , much wholesome player who can post shot for his size , Simmons is trash

                        That and the simple definition of rookie should have excluded Simmons. This isn't college with some redshirt year bullshit. You get injured oh well don't punish true first year players.

                            I've always said they should try Ben as a center and have Joel play the power forward the way Tim Duncan (who was actually a center) did. Spurs had tremendous success by moving Tim to the 4. It created mismatches every night. Ben can learn to post up until he develops a shot and then have TJ or Reddick play the point. Boom. Problem solved.

                              coach love the vid and long time fan, but how come in the beginning of the vid you said he is most valuable in transition finding open teammates, but then 20 seconds later bash him and call him a turnover machine on the break

                                          Simmons is my favourite player (then Embiid, Bron, Luka) but I’m an Aussie so sue me. Loved this honest breakdown and agree.

                                                  I advise anyone who knows anything about basketball to look up the Greek freaks first three years playing in the NBA, been is ahead of the Greek freaks stats in only his second season playing.keep in mind the Greek freak took four years to surpass what been is doing in two.give him two more years of development you will see a monster .

                                                        Best way to beat The Simmons Sag is to have Simmons pass and set a quick screen to the player he passed 2. Simmons defender is out of position leading to a wide open shot on the perimeter.

Would you please go into his shot mechanics I would like to hear what you see.

Until he learns how to shoot like Gary Payton and Jason Kidd did, Philly won't win anything. Overrated in 7 game playoff series. 👎👎👎👎 to Sixers. Double Embid. Let ben shoot airballz.
