Default Re: Ben Simmons is overrated...Lamar Odom 2

I have some similar concerns over Simmons' seeming lack of that take over mentality. I had the same concern with Wiggins, but it was more of a factor because it was going to have to be such a focul point of his game for him to be who was supposed to be.

With Simmons it doesn't worry me much though. If he develops a jumper and gets more aggressive, great. If not, he's about as well suited to be the second guy on a title team as anyone I can recall coming in.

I don't think Odom is a terrible comp by any means. But I'd predict Simmons to be a better rebounder and interior defender than Odom was, even if that means not being quite the ball handler.
