  • Ben Simmons is already great but jumper will take him to next level

    Let's start with this: Ben Simmons is a great basketball player. There's no doubt Kawhi Leonard is one of - if not the best - wing defenders in the NBA. There's certainly credit due to Leonard and the Raptors' defensive plan in general.

  • It's Scary That Ben Simmons Can Still Get Better

    During the 2017-18 regular season, Ben Simmons, a 19 year-old omni-positional marvel, flirted with a triple-double almost every night—and, more importantly, played a key role in landing the Sixers a three-seed in the playoffs. Simmons was poised and inventive in ways that first-year teens just aren’t supposed be. The birther-esque campaign against his Rookie of the Year eligibility—started by Donovan Mitchell’s fans, then taken up by Mitchell himself, and finally by the apparel company he endorses—hinged as much on this implausibility as it did a non-existent technicality.

    Ben Simmons finished with eight points and 14 assists against the same Australian club his father played for in the early 1990s as the Philadelphia 76ers clobbered Melbourne United 104-84 on Friday.

Simmons, whose father David starred for Melbourne from 1989 to 1996, also finished with eight rebounds.
