Sixers coach Brett Brown stated today that Ben Simmons is relishing the moment to be a great player.
Sixers beat writer Tom Moore discussed coach Brown’s assessment of Simmons as being, “a runaway train like LeBron James, he has a little bit of bounce like Draymond Green, and that he can pass the ball like Magic Johnson. While Simmons is clearly a special talent, it’s unfair to compare him to such superstars as Magic Johnson and LeBron James. Expectations should be tempered, despite the fact that Simmons will receive every opportunity to succeed in Philadelphia. A high turnover potential and low field goal percentage will keep Simmons from being an elite fantasy player this year. Draft accordingly.
