Not a scrub by any means but will never be a superstar. Doncic meanwhile is already the Star A in his team.
You can't use a guy struggling in the playoffs as a negative when the other guy you're comparing him to didn't make the playoffs.
Especially when the guy won't make the playoffs again this year.
It’s not the problem Simmons having bad series or two in playoffs, but his game, which enables opponents to put double teams on Embiid&co. without being punished. Luka has to prove his worth, but he for sure won’t be left alone in playoffs. Luka’s game is just made for this new era of Nba. On the other hand Simmons without a shot is just too limited. Not making a single 3 in 2 years is for sure no coincidence or something that can be changed in the summer. The question is really simple, what si more likely, Simmons developing a jumper from 0 or Luka becoming more efficient and little better shooter? It looks to me that people in this thread in vast majority believe that second opinion is much more likely.
