Another Wizard. Obviously the scoring for Beal looks a lot better but that’s it. Simmons is the all-around better player and it’s really not even close. Ben is just about doubling him up in rebounds and assist per game all while shooting more effectively at 5.3% higher.
Yes, Beal takes threes and Simmons doesn’t but if we look at just Beal’s 2p% he is still short of what Ben is doing at 50.8%. Not much but the facts are the facts.
Lastly, Beal has two double doubles in 47 games, Ben has 4 TRIPLE doubles in 42 games. I rest my case.
Get out of my face with this nonsense. Al Horford over Ben Simmons? Shaq said the following last night and I 10000% believe him:
Not only do I think Shaq could post those numbers today but it would also be way more entertaining to watch. Fat old Shaq stumbling around, give me that!
You want to know what Al Horford’s defensive rating is, do you? 115. That means when Big Al is on the floor the Celtics are averaging 115 points per game to their opponents. Boston has the second best OPPG in the league at 98.2, when Horford is on the floor they allow 17 more points per game. Simmons on the over hand is a 103 defensive rating for the record.
At the end of the day, rookies get snubbed all the time. There is a reason only 45 rookies have ever been all-stars and only 3 in Simmons lifetime. If Ben stays healthy during his career, I think this is the last time he doesn’t make an all-star roster until 2030.
By then we will have flying cars, talking toasters and the Carson Wentz will be a 10x MVP.
