  • Is Ben Simmons the reason why the 76ers got killed by the Boston Celtics last year in the playoffs, as well as in the season opener?
    Ben Simmons somehow became even more frightening and unstoppable in transition. Pretty much all of the Sixers 16 points in transition were generated by him in some shape or form.
    He goes full speed directly towards the chest of 2 Celtics defenders. A 1 on 2 or even 1 on 5 situation - Ben Simmons handled it elegantly.
    And as crazy as that is, on defense, I saw him switched out on almost everyone. And he held his own. If needed he could cover on the opposing point guard, all the way to the center. Now that’s wild. However we get to the elephant in the room and that is of course his shooting. The biggest thing for Ben Simmons is it’s obvious that he is not comfortable even taking the shot. In the half court offense he is pretty easy to guard. Back off 1 step give him a little cushion and that’s it. He won’t even try to shoot. All the makes come from inside the paint. The problem is even worse with Marquelle Fultz. He’s not only uncomfortable shooting the ball, but He is actually still practicing his shooting motion. Not trying to hit the basket, but practicing the release.
    If I’m going to play Fultz, and I know that he can’t shoot 1 bit, I sure as hell expect him to give me either Rondo type of tempo and movement, or Andre Roberson type of defense. These are players not known for their shot but could do other things right? And since he is nowhere near 1 or the other, it’s like playing 4 on 5 basketball. Also, when you have 2 guys in the lineup who don’t even know how to shoot the ball, and BTW are your perimeter players, What kind of spacing do you think you’re going to provide Joel Embiid to play with? Who to his credit had a nice 23 & 10 game.
    Based on what I saw in their playoff battle and what I saw on opening night, I say Boston goes 4-1 again in the playoffs against the sixers.

      Hey man awesome analysis. Could you do an updated version? The Sixers are supposedly stacked now however the same fatal flaw you talk about still exists. Having Ben Simmons on the court at all times is like having 4 on 5 Basketball. His inability to even shoot a 5 ft jumper is so fatal to the Sixers they cannot overcome it no matter who’s in the line up. Granted, they beat the Celtics but barely and that was without Baines, Smart and Hayward.
      Simmons has no business at the 1 he is a 4. It is so clear that Simmons is hurting this team. It’s so simple if the Sixers has a Kemp’s Walker or Even Terry Rozier the Sixers make he finals. Notice with Ben on the Floor rarely are any Sixers ever open. Simmons always allows extra guards to defend any player they want. Please do a follow up!!

      +Jun Labuga again, his lack of ability to make jumpshots outside of 3ft gives teams the ability to double Joel instead of being forced to stay on Ben.

          Some of the greatest pgs of all-time didn't have an outside jumper. Take it to the hole and distribute the rock. That's what Simmons can do. Maybe coach gotta use him properly. Or Other dudes gotta step up. But it ain't only Ben's fault

              Let me give you some facts here: Ben Simmons is the only point guard in history of the NBA who hasn't made a  3 pointer. Ben Simmons is the only point guard in history who won't shoot (cause he's HORRIBLE!)

              Ben Simmons is the only point guard in history who shoots 50% from free throw line! How is he any good? Everything he does do well gets discredited by the fact he doesn't have point guard skills. He actually doesn't have a position. He's definitely not a point guard or shooting guard. He's not a small forward because small forwards can shoot. Definitely not a power forward or a center. He is a bum!!Just a tall guy who can dribble and dunk!

              Sixers are always playing 5 against 4. Opponents don't respect him so they don't even guard him. That means teams are double teaming Embiid, and other players. He makes the Sixers worse! Give me any point guard in the NBA and the Sixers are a good team. Anyone who thinks Ben Simmons is going to be better than Magic Johnson or any other great point guards in the NBA history are all IDIOTs!
              95% of the basketball analysts agree with what I'm saying. They all agree when the game is on the line with 2 minutes remaining, take Ben Simmons out of the game because he will hurt the Sixers. He can't shoot free throws so the teams will do a "Hack a Shaq" on Ben Simmons.

              Sixers had 2 number one picks and all we got out of this is Ben Simmons and Markelle Faultz??? Ben Simmons at the point and Markelle Faultz at shooting guard. Are you kidding me?? That was the vision Sixers had. Markelle Faultz is a whole different story for another time.

                he is considered good because once he gets a shot hes a better form of magic. unfortunately ben simmons is arrogant and sometimes a coward. He refuses to improve which is why he never will. I like old school balling but this aint even close. He should at least be able to space the floor to the midrange. I see kids at the ymca who are 7 and can shoot mid and three better. Ben Simmons just needs to work if he still wanna be a point guard.

              Ben Simmons is the reason the sixers are good but his lack of shooting is also the reason they are not great.

                  Don’t caption the video how Ben Simmons is hurting the sixers if your going to complement him a lot and not really even talking about him who cares if he sucks at shooting he can drive and he gets a lot of points from driving per game which some of the big name nba players can’t do

                                He said he never practiced outside shooting. How can you play bball for years and never spend much time on your perimeter game? But that shows how talented he is. It says something when you are statistically productive in the NBA at the 1,2, or 3 position and do it without any outside shooting.

                                If he develops an outside shot, WATCH OUT.

                                    I'm a sixers fan. Ben Simmons is a cancer to Sixers! You cannot be a point guard if you can't shoot. It is mandatory! Anyone who says Magic Johnson couldn't shoot or Lebron James couldn't shoot or Rajon Rondo can't shoot are all IDIOTS!!!
                                    Magic Johnson scored 42 points grabbed 15 rebounds and had 7 assists in the 1980 finals against the Sixers. Lot of those points were jump shots.
                                    To be a point guard you need to have at least a respectable jump shop to keep the defense honest. Not only is Ben Simmons a horrible, horrible shooter, he can't shoot free throws either. Every game I see he shoots 2-7, 2-9, 3 for 8. He's making me sick to my stomach!! To make things worse, suddenly now he's taking outside shots and its not even hitting the rim! He air balls it or bricks it off the backboard.
                                    NBA teams are not even guarding Ben Simmons on offense. They dare him to shoot. They double team other sixers players like Joel Embiid and its making their job a lot harder!! How the hell Ben Simmons made the all star team this year is mind boggling! He don't deserve it.
