5 years ago Ben Simmons joined The Process after being selected #1 overall by participating in the Summer League. After watching this display of competent basketball, I think I speak for all Sixers fans by saying:
Summer League aside…really? REALLY??? Ben Simmons is consistently draining, nay, TAKING shots from mid-range to the top of the key. Fuck making them, which he does, he actually at one point in his life was attempting to shoot like an actual, real life basketball player. It would be one thing if he simply just refused to develop or is scared to play out of his game…BUT HE HAS ALREADY SHOWED HE CAN AT LEAST FUCKING DO IT SOMEWHAT CONSISTENTLY 5 YEARS AGO. This is insanity. I honestly don't get it. Unfortunately, I don't think we ever will.
Oh well. Onward and upward, or some shit like that. Hopefully after Trae's performance last night against the Bucks this haunts every single soul in the Sixers organization from Game 7 thru eternity.
PS - Can't wait if the Hawks to make the finals for the Sixers to use that as validation to not make the drastic changes needed. "Well they're NBA Finals contenders and we were right there with them till the end." Gonna be fun.
