Great anticipation combined with great athleticism. That's a beautiful thing. He's a player - like Giannis - who is able to step up at the end of close games at both ends of the court - his focus seems to dramatically increase. Winner.

I have Simons as a prime RFA target in the offseason. The way he's going, he might get more than the MLE after a quiet first nearly 3 and a half seasons.

Interestingly, his numbers look much the same as last year (which weren't that bad) except he has made an incredible leap in his shooting percentage from floater range. I haven't watched him enough to know if that's a fluke or if he has figured something out about how to finish his drives to the rim, but if that's real, it'll open up his game a great deal. Prior to this year, he was exclusively a 3-point shooter. If you chased him off the line, his efficiency was terrible.

Better than Beal already.
After the Wizards GM really went and did it by having an imaginative, strong, draft day. I totally feel this as well;

Man, the hate that Beal gets around here is unbelievable. Let's see Simons do it for more than 5 games.

The one serious complaint I have about BB is how so many of his TOs are live ball TOs,
often between the circles, which obviously lead to very easy run outs.
A lot of what we call 'thought' is just mental activity

What with the miserable life and circumstances and all that you know I got a put that energy somewhere.

What’s Bradley like 28 years old, young, healthy, athletic, handsome, millionaire… With a nice young family in from a good family, too?!

Shoots yeah I’m gonna hate away! :)

What I’m not gonna do is kiss his ass. He plays
At times petulantly; and, IMO he is not playing up to the level of a guy that deserves $40 million.

Simon at his salary is definitely better than Beal at his salary.

But I’m not hating on Bradley per se I’m just telling it the way I see it.

Let’s give it 10 or 15 more games and see how they both perform

Gotta figure that the Bulls' lack of interior D is going to catch up to them at some point.

Only 1 turnover though :lol:

Honestly, no idea how we ever made it through the season without losing our collective minds.

Can't say that I miss the Westbrook WTFs.



What a horror show.

Vucevic just seems like a bad fit with this group.
