Default Re: Thoughts on Ben Simmons?

My athleticism fears have been quelled. He's much bigger and far more athletic than I thought he'd be watching him earlier.

Mentality remains somewhat questionable. But he functions better as a facilitator than say Wiggins, who I also had aggression concerns with, but my concerns are less with Simmons, although it may prevent him from being a real One, he's already super well suited as a title team piece, even if it's not the centerpiece.

I still like the suped up Diaw comp, and a variation on Odom, just shifted more to the interior.

If the jumper comes you're talking a legit title centerpiece guy.
