Quin Snyder should be a finalist for COY.
Simmons just took a dump on all defensive candidate Rudy and scored 42 points on him. Rudy was guarding Simmons all game.

He brutally exposed Gobert today on a 1 on 1 matchup
WTF are you actually talking about here? Do you guys actually watch those games or just boxscore watch and push whatever fake hype narrative is convenient? Simmons was amazing this game and abused our defense (mainly in transition), but lets not get it twisted about what exactly he did against Gobert. Gobert DID NOT guard him all game and in their one on one matchup Simmons was 3/7 from the field vs Gobert and scored a total of 12 points when guarded by Gobert(if you give him the 2 putbacks when Gobert was guarding him, but went to give help defense and forced the misses which were cleaned up by Simmons) out of 42 total.
This is freaking ridiculous. I get hyping your own guy and enjoying his success but this is complete and utter garbage that is completely divorced from reality and the saddest thing is it's done with a single purpose - to degrade and put down another great player. You don't need to do that in order to enjoy Simmons' success, you can appreciate him on his own merits. For those who haven't seen the game here's the highlights of Simmons vs the Jazz(worth watching more than just to confirm he was guarded by Royce and Favors and Bojan for majority of the game, because he really did have a special game):
