    Embodies is blatantly the future and Simmons is a decade away from...... needing a jump shot

    The fan base was so enthused from the offseason when he was showing us working on his game and promised progression. And then came back exactly the same as he was when we drafted him. We fell for the leaked gym footage that we got with Fultz

    Wasn't just the 3s, it was the jump shots and more aggressive mindset. But come real games he drives and kicks and stands there doing FA.

    His jump shot is just too slow in take and release to actually be a real shot though. By the time he releases the ball from his hand from when he takes it, id expect a defender to be able to rush, make himself a coffee, read the sports section, put his coffee cup down and then challenge the shot/block it. Its not a real NBA shot. The jump shots he does get ie. the 1 or 2 are ones when defenders are say 10ft off him and not showing any intererst in challenging the shot anyway. He cant and wont take it until he learns how to dribble to shake off a opponent or until he can release the shot quicker. Until then I think he is right to not bother with it.

    I think its a case of he worked on it in the off season, he came back to practice and the coach told him "This is garbage, put it away" more then anything Ben is doing himself. Itd be a clear coaching instruction at this point and I think the coach is right

    My issue with Bens play this season is more about his ability to up the tempo. I think the offense is a tad slow at the moment. Yesterdays game was the first time he really ran the court and played the game at a decent tempo

    The footage was crap because the shooting action and the shots he were making were not real NBA shots, they were just low intensity heaves at the bucket

    Embiid is the centrepiece and controls the tempo when he's in the game. Can't run uptempo post up/mismatch offence.

    leaf is such a spud. Hated the pick, could definitely use John Collins right now. Don’t mind McConnell but would rather he collect DNPs and just be a good bloke on the bench

    Anyway first start for Bitadze and he actually looks good. Already like him more than Turner although that’s not hard

    I believe so, a reddit thread says we have them all. Also said in 2015-16, we had all three nba players with the last name Hill:

    Zimbabwe
    Solomon
    Jordan

    Pretty much playing Ben at the 4 tonight. He's screening for ball handlers more, he's defending not at the top of the key. Good changes. Tobi on fire

    Standard Booker killing us. He destroys Ben. Richardson has been poor all night. And Thybulle in foul trouble.

    Of course Portland can't even been a scrub Golden State team. I swear NBA betting is rigged.

    I picked him up last week when Curry went down and was super close to dropping him in my fantasy side before dropping Kaminsky instead

    John Collins now suspended for 25 games for taking a human growth hormone. Gotta wonder what's happening in these colleges

    Glad I didn't get Ayton now. Ball breaker.
