blake griffin is always hurt, and ben simmons is a mega bust lmao.

I also find your statement difficult to comprehend.

Simmons already looks like a great player to have on a team and he's worked hard on his jump shot this past off season, his one big weakness, and it looks like the work is going to pay off

What's so mega bust about him? He and his Sixers squad are a guaranteed playoff unit right now

look at all the first overall picks in recent years...


Anthony Bennett - super bust people liked because of his zion like size
Andrew Wiggins - big bust people loved because of his vert and speed
KAT - legit, but soft. actually has some skill.
Ben Simmons - total bust who cant shoot a basketball outside 5 feet drafted purely on his athleticism
Markelle Fultz -
DeAndre Ayton - has some decent skill but is basically al jefferson

and now Zion whose like a rich mans anthony bennett.

hes been a massive liability on his squad for a few years now.

Theyre literally a playoff team without him on all stars embiid and tobias alone in a brutally weak east sans kawhi and lebron.

and they have nice supporting players in horford and richardson.

Nah the Achilles did a lot of damage. And he suffered that at 34 playing really harsh minutes and carrying a dysfunctional Lakers squad. Barely into the next season he messed his knee up then the next season threw out his shooting shoulder. 3 catastrophic injuries in a row. At an advanced basketball age with lots of mileage.

You never cease to surprise me by how stupid you sound.

Just when I think you have raised the bar the highest, you some how surpass it.
