He's going to be a great defender, good shooter both in catch and shoots and off the dribble eventually, great slasher, pretty good playmaker. He's got the skill foundation you'd want in a lead guard and he's a beast athlete to make use of it.
Agreed. Him and Simmons are a complete tier ahead of Tatum, who's more of a system player.

It's Tatum>Mitchell>Simmons.

All three are pretty close obviously. Simmons is the WORST shooter in the NBA outside of 10ft for players who have taken at least 100 jumpshots. Huge problem.

I'd take Simmons if he could at least make his FT's at a good rate, but he is just too much of a liability when it comes to shooting, period. Both Mitchell and Tatum are better than him for that reason.

Ben wasn't the one guarding Tatum that series. So what are you even babbling about? Has zero to do with my post. Try again

Rondo couldn't shoot. Still a valuable PG on offense and defense like Ben Simmons. If Ben wants to take his game to the next level? Yes he will need to find some kind of jumper be it mid range or corner 3.

Did I say Ben Simmons isn't valuable?

Rondo is a good role player. That is what Simmons is and will be. Tatum will be a star. Because he is multidimensional with his skills

Tatum is just Rudy Gay in a good system. Potential all star but thats it.

Mitchie and Ben have much higher floors and ceilings.

He didnt need to be...Tatum outplayed his defenders more than Ben did, and unlike simmons he did it as the best player on his team.


Having a jump shot is a helluva thing to have playing basketball.

He was guarded by JJ Redick and Marco Belineli for the most part. Kudos for Tatum taking advantage though. If you want to say Tatum had a better series than Ben Simmons? Thatís not hard to type. Why did you make it difficult?

And no tatum is not the best on the team. Horford and Brown were Celtics best players that post season. And if I had to pick between the two it would be Horford who was consistent throughout. So while people talk up Tatum Sixers series they overlooked Horford against Embiid in defense and bringing solid offense to boot. Boston has been better these playoffs with Horford than Tatum. Not even arguable.

And no I donít hate Tatum. Liked him coming out. Skilled offensive talent. Just chuckle at the overrating he has had killing Sixers. No one noticed Tatum vs Milw.
