Who is better overall, Jaylen Brown or Ben Simmons?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2021 02:28:50
It depends on what else I have. So neither.

01 Sep 2021 02:40:38
I think it’s easier to build a team around Simmons, just surround him with all shooters. Idk if you could build a team around Brown.

01 Sep 2021 03:54:46
Getting a big that can play with Simmons will ALWAYS be the issue.

Easier to build around Brown.

01 Sep 2021 04:32:26
There’s plenty of bigs that can stretch the floor these days. Just need to find one that’s not more of a post player like Embiid. Also Simmons need to be the starting PF and just run point forward.

01 Sep 2021 19:59:07
lets see here. Kat, B. Lopez, Vucevic, Jokic, Turner, ummm, ummmm, who else? Porzingis? Olynyk?

Not sure that this list qualifies as "plenty". 7 players out of 30 teams.

Also, I would have added Embiid to the list, but we already know how that worked out.

01 Sep 2021 20:01:14
Also, FYI. There were only 5 centers who averaged over 1 3pt made per game. Just saying.

01 Sep 2021 22:22:40
Valanciunas Markannen Mobley Jones Wood Griffen Bamba Bryant Thad etc… all centers or PF who have played significant minutes as ball small 5. Like I said it’s just finding the right match.

02 Sep 2021 03:42:01
So getting Simmons means you have to play a small ball lineup because of fit?

02 Sep 2021 17:21:05
Is 2x 6’10+ guys really small though?

The real limitation is that you can’t have a ball dominant post presence as your center, which is basically just Embiid. If your center is the 4th or 5th offensive option, it doesn’t really matter if he stretches the floor or not.

03 Sep 2021 01:30:27
Only Thad and Griffen I listed is small ball centers. Simmons is a PF (point forward) in today’s league. Honestly he doesn’t even need a sharpshooter at center. He needs to play PF so they can put another guard that shoots on the floor. If they started Curry/ Milton/ Green/ Simmons/ Embiid it would be a better spacing team. If they could trade Harris for Hield or another guard I believe that would improve tremendously.

Knowing what we all now know, Philly fans, do you now wish Morey had pulled the trigger on the Simmons+Maxey+pick for Harden reported deal?

Agree1 Disagree1

31 Aug 2021 21:37:29
They should’ve wished that anyways.

01 Sep 2021 00:49:18
As not a Phili fan, they absolutely should.

31 Aug 2021 05:19:38
Seen where Emoni Bates chose Memphis to learn from Penny and play the PG position

Agree3 Disagree0

Brian Windhorst: ‘The teams that have talked to Philly, they are not right now in the mode for trading Ben Simmons. It doesn’t mean that he’s not available, but right now it does not appear that there are any active discussions for Ben Simmons. I think Ben is preparing to start the season with Philadelphia. ’

YIKES! That locker room has to be uncomfortable.

For executives around the league, the message appeared to be that the Bulls did not want to move Markkanen, even though it is clear the former No. 7 pick wanted a fresh start and asked out.  Markkanen fully expected to be part of the DeMar DeRozan sign-and-trade package to San Antonio, but Chicago is believed to have pulled him from the proposal,  sources said. Markkanen had a one-year, $9 million qualifying offer on the table. But after a major offseason acquiring DeRozan, Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso, the Bulls wanted to address the Markkanen situation sooner rather than later. If Markkanen signed the qualifying offer, he would have had a no-trade clause and therefore the Bulls risked losing him for nothing at the end of the season. The Bulls received a strong haul in a rotation player like Jones and two draft picks in Friday’s trade.

Kinda funny

Yahoo came out today with their projected top 22 shooting guards.

Buddy Hield was 15th

Tyrese Halliburton was 14th.

Agree0 Disagree6

30 Aug 2021 16:08:05
How is this funny at all.

28 Aug 2021 16:11:39
any chance Love takes a buyout deal like Griffin and sign with the Lakers?

Agree1 Disagree5

28 Aug 2021 21:49:57
I doubt it. He doesn’t seem like he wants to play. He has a ring already. Bet he rather have his 60mil for nothing.

29 Aug 2021 17:17:46
I don’t think he’s willing to give any money back. I don’t think he’d be unhappy leaving, but he seems happy playing and living in Cleveland. This isn’t the same because Griffin seemed absolutely miserable in Detroit.

28 Aug 2021 01:41:52
Thoughts on the trade that went down today?

Cleveland receives: Lauri Markkanen

Chicago receives: Derrick Jones Jr, '22 lotto protected first from Portland and '23 second rounder via Denver

Portland receives: Larry Nance Jr.

I love this for Cleveland. We needed shooting badly.

Agree5 Disagree0

28 Aug 2021 05:24:21
Good move for Portland, they finally get a PF with size and can play D.

28 Aug 2021 11:06:46
Kinda surprised Markkane got $16+ per year.

28 Aug 2021 11:51:30
Just a move to replace love.

30 Aug 2021 23:34:20
What are the Cavs supposed to do with Allen, Mobley, Markkanen, and Love all on the same team?
