    It's year 3. I've been a Ben Simmons supporter. He's an all star already. He can be a generational talent if he just attempted to shoot the ball. I assumed that would be the next step for him this year. And, despite all the summer videos, he's actually shooting it worse and at a much lower rate than the last couple years. It appears as if he hasn't even made a shot between 10-16 ft and only .028% of his shots are within that distance. He's also getting the foul line less often and making less of those shots. He should be close to 70% from the line at this point.

    This has to change asap. Does Brown get the blame for not forcing him to shoot by calling the right plays? Does Ben get the blame for continually passing up shooting opportunities? Gotta be a combination of the two. But come on! Shoot the fucking ball already! There's no excuse at this point. We're 10+ games into his third season. Gotta be better. And the longer he goes without shooting, the more difficult it's going to be on him mentally. 





    He's killing their spacing. 



    yeah although iwould put it slightly more on Ben more than Brown. Pretty frustrating

    not trusting the process anymore? his lack of attempts would be ok if they had more shooters. they don't have enough.  it also might help to actual get their team on the court together a heck of lot more instead of load managing guys.

    Meanwhile it looks as if Fultz may be finally finding his shot, 8-10 yesterday.

    Saw that. Pretty crazy. His form still looks weird though.

    Yeah that style looks like he would have no chance to get off a contested jump shot. Takes about 5 minutes for him to hoist the ball from his waist to release point.

    Question.  I have not watch all of the sixers game but for people who have just wondering is simmon an all-star so far this year?  I get that he is a big name on a popular team but I have not been impressed this year at all.  I know its not always about the stat line but he is ave. 7 assists a game and 13 points a game.  not what I expected

    See what I posted earlier. I was expecting big things but a month into the season, I'm underwhelmed by him so far. He must start shooting the ball.

    The worst thing that happened to him was winning ROY and being an All Star his second season. He must feel that he doesn't have to shoot to be good.

    I was at the Nova game there a few days ago. Really like the upgrades. The betting lounge up at the top is cool. Though, there is no sports book, curiously. The guy there told me to download the app. ? Either way, tons of tvs and shit and standing room only section with a nice view of the court, despite being up so high.

    Yeah, I am excited to see it, especially that scoreboard.  Didn't realize they had a sportsbook of sorts in there.  Pretty wild how fast gambling is just part of mainstream sports now.  There is an NBC channel that just has live lines scrolling throughout.  Stumbled on it last night.

    I saw that towards the end of the Sixers game last night. I think that was just a special for that one game? Either way, it was pretty cool. And yeah it is weird how mainstream all of this has become. 

    The sportsbook/not a sportsbook thing is cool but difficult to find--or at least it was for us at the Nova game and a half full arena. Had to go up what looked like a secret elevator to find it. haha

    Ahh, I thought I had changed the channel or something.  Yeah, they took no time just incorporating it into everyday sports. 

    It's up by the balcony suites?  I doubt I'll make it up there especially since there is no book.  Looking forward to it though.

    Think Butler gets booed, cheered, indifferent?

    Nice. Can't Donovan just be happy that he can shoot and Ben can't?

    Going to the game tonight. Not exactly the most exciting matchup with how much the Spurs have been sucking lately but I really wanted to cross seeing a coach Pop game off my bucket list.

    Looking good. My kid wanted to turned the game off at the beginning of the 4th because his said it was over. With the frustrating play so far this year, I wanted to soak in every second of this game.

    Insult to injury, had money riding on Simmons to go for a triple-double. One rebound shy.
