Behind that smile and charsima, magic was also a ruthless competitor that had heart. Far from afraid. While he wasn't a great shooter, he also developed some range along with his free throws. Simmons ain't cut from magics cloth.

Totally different era. 70% of the players couldn't shoot back then. Now every player MUST be able to shoot

But Simmons is only 25. He has time to change the narrative like Bron & Dirk did about their toughness. People forget now but LeBron took so much criticism during his first 5/6 years of people saying he was scared to shoot or couldn’t shoot. From the field and FT’s. Skip was on his a*s EVERY morning about that. What kind of King is trusting Sasha Pavlovic to take the game tying 3? That type of sh*t. Ben shows 0 emotion on the floor, he might be a cold blooded k*ller if he gets over this mental block of not wanting to be trusted to take the tough shot.

Giannis just won a chip as the Finals MVP and he can't shoot. Your statement is factually incorrect.

Skip is still on him about that, as early as Monday this week lol. People still say the same tired narratives about lebron today, that they've had since early on. I watched lebron take apart the pistons and lead a team to the finals at age 22. Same thing about dirk, they always considered him soft, but I watched dirk battle his entire career as a number #1, that barely ever had a legit #2. Simmons ain't that guy. I just don't see it to be comparing him to great players that never displayed that level of fear, lack of work ethic and drive to a*sume he could do what they did. I think Ben is what he is. A VERY good a*set to a championship team, but not a #1 or #2.

Giannis is a freak of nature.

Don't ever compare Ben to him.

Key difference between Ben and Giannis is that Giannis

-Actively aggressive attacks the basket for dunks/layups

- isn't afraid to shoot mid range or 3s if the opportunity presents itself

- isnt afraid to go to freethrow line

- MOST IMPORTANTLY: Giannis actually works on his game in the off-season and has shown steady improvement of his mid range at least

You cannot say any of this about Ben's game. Outside of being a great defender If he can't find the open man he will stay in the dunkers spot clogging the paint

Naw it was the opposite, most players had jump shots and were more complete.

Everybody making up their opinion about ben...this is the reason that's the reason. We know why he originally quit because his team doesn't believe in him lol...it might sound corny but pride is what makes or break a person...the narrative about him shooting is just to cover up the fact that the front office coach and best player on the team wanted him gone or they dont believe in him....you can say ben is morally wrong but that is all about a individual person's perspective of morality..if embid wasnt injury prone I believe sixers would of traded ben for peanuts

I mean it’s true and Magic dealt with similar scrutiny. Only thing Magics and Bens mentally are different. Regardless of his shooting woes Magics confidence was never shook while Simmons is easily shook. Being a better free throw shooter will greatly improve his game but will he put in the work?
