    Does anyone else find it clever that the sixers used simmons's lack of a jumpshot to open up open shots

        It’s said by many but why doesn’t Simmons shoot his jumper with his right? He definitely have better touch seeing him making hooks, florets and finger rolls with his right.

            Love these sixers vids, there offense is so unique with Simmons running screener or ball handler in the pick and roll and the off ball screens/ movement of Reddick, keep it up coach

                The Brooklyn Nets should be ashamed of themselves for playing such piss poor defense like that. They made Simmons(a layup or buss) type player look like Magic Johnson.

                  Than gets exposed the next game, proving why he needs a jumper.

                              This just shows that simmons is a righty not a lefty.

                                @BBALLBREAKDOWN once again below average analysis. Simmons has a triple double with Embiid on the floor and had a great game 4 with Embiid on the floor. Again you are a FRAUD!!

                                  Ben Simmons needs MORE SPOTLIGHT with the 2nd Unit. 😀😀😀
                                  Embid would be resting on the bench.

                                    Force the ball down their throats like a 6'10 point guard should do.

                                      Landry Shamet trade was disappointing. 😞😞😞
                                      You need that type of rookie SHARPSHOOTER in 2019-style NBA.
                                      Could use a lineup with Simmons at the 3-spot, featuring Landry Shamet as POINT GUARD along with J.J. Redick.

                                        Not having Joel Embid on the court makes Ben Simmons a BETTER PLAYER. 😀😀😀

                                                good to see Simmons getting credit when it's due. Your vids are a level up from everyone else btw.

                                                  Why people forget that he averaged a triple double at the end of last season 14 game win streak without Embiid.

                                                      Simmon is a right hander come on simmons change us shooting to right hand.. All ur drive lay up u shoot it most on ur right not ur left

                                                        Easy, unless you have a good set for Redick, Harris, and Butler, Ben Simmons should be playing point guard. Put Ben on the block to utilize his strength.

                                                          He should be used like Boris Diaw at PF a post playmaker

                                                            Finally a ideo showing that Simmons is not a PG. What kind of PG performs better setting screens and rolling hard to the basket?

But Embiid not in the game is probably worse for floor spacing but better for Simmons touches number. Simmons just needs the ball,, you know cause he can't shoot.
