Literally the first time in his career he may have someone throw a rocket up him and get him to attempt some shots - if he can't do it this season there is no hope.


I could be wrong.

But he spent last offseason to train with Jimmy’s trainer..

..just to play like how he used before he train with Jimmy’s trainer.


Jimmy's trainer is James Scott. I haven't seen one thing on twitter or 5 different internet browsers (just to make sure) linking those two together, ever. You just be typing anything lol.

He usually works with Chris Johnson and other Klutch guys like TT & Darius Garland. He also spent some time with Wade last offseason

They've sessioned together but he isn't Jimmy's trainer. Type in 'Jimmy Butler workout' and you can find him working with a ton of people. His main guy that travels with him is James Scott.

Ok.

Whoever trains Ben should be left anonymous to protect his career as a trainer.

Pc? You mean personal computer like his gaming?

He’s not a funny guy like Biid. I’d imagine him as someone who’s really vain that cares a lot on his image.

Im not saying it’s a bad thing and it’s just my guess given I dont know him personally. That’s just my PC take on his demeanor :lol:

Feel like Ben has really embraced Philly and this franchise.
2020-2021 Philadelphia 76ers:

Simmons/Milton/Maxey
Curry/Korkmaz/Joe
Green/Thybulle/Ferguson
Harris/Scott/Reed
Embiid/Howard/Bradley

Any update on Ben's injury? Is he going to be ready for the start of the season?

In crunch time, we can utilize Ben just like how Raps and Bucks utilize Siakam and Giannis.


Watch first 10 secs of that clips. Imagine Ben getting screened by Seth. Defense wont be able to switch that. We run a similar play with him and kork. Actually we run that with JJ, at the top of the key, during crunch time.

I’d even say that this potentially can be as good as any PnR run by a traditional PG. that you can build an entire offense with this.

The reason I point this one out is there’s a thread in GB where it asks which player addition would make us a champion. For me it’s simple, a player that can make Ben useful on crunch time. Butler was not that guy, and I think guys like Green, Seth, Kork and Milton can.

Morey and the FO may ask you to do a powerpoint presentation about this to the Rockets if they opt to trade Ben for Harden

I’m still holding out hope for a Ben/Harden deal at the deadline when it’s clear Ben hasn’t fixed his mental block and Houston realizes he’s the best they’ll get for Harden.

Return to Philadelphia 76ers
