You need to calm down there Dedicated. This was an A & B conversation there Prozak...You can C your way out of it. Maybe try some decaf. I happen to believe that players do improve over time. Thus the reason a lot of them are labeled "projects." Ben by no means was a finished product coming into the league, and the same goes for Shake, Mattise, Korkmaz, and even Zhaire Smith to a lesser extent. I've seen players come into the league unable to hit sand if they fell of a camel and a few years later become competent three point shooters that defenses need to be leery of. So go on somewhere with your Ben Simmons conspiracy rants. We don't need your Spencer Dinwiddie love here.
I dont even know who that is, but sure. Show me a single player in NBA history that couldnt shoot the ball, and or refused too for 4 years and then turned into a max level player offensively.
Nobody is saying he's going to be a max level shooter you clown shoe. Stop exaggerating everything! My God "max level shooter", that comment is so overblown and just redundant that I can actually hear brain cells dying. I never said that....Lebron isn't a max level shooter, but he's improved over the years. There's no reason to say Simmons can't do the same. Simmons can develop a respectable three point shot...Especially the corner three. He can work a pull up 15 footer into his game. This isn't asking a whole lot and once he gets to that point (I think he will), he's going to be the superstar we all want. OH and where do you get four years from? This was year three for Simmons and it was a shortened one at that. Once the restart tipped off he got hurt, so we never got to see if he had developed anything over the break. Now he's got a few more months to do so. I think we can all agree that he's going to need to do more for us to ever make this work. I think he knows that. Give the guy a chance.
