Off the Record (OTR)

Simmons great, but not

The Philadelphia 76ers have to be excited about what they’ve seen from last year’s first-overall pick Ben Simmons. He’s been excellent in the preseason with numerous flashy plays.

And he was pretty solid again on Monday night…for the most part.

Simmons had 15 points, six rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal and two turnovers in 26 minutes. That’s pretty awesome.

However, he was 3-10 from the free throw line. Ehhhhh…

It’s great that he has shown so much promise, but he just has to be better at the line. Those are FREE points. 30% just won’t cut it.

Still, it’s exciting to think about what Simmons, Joel Embiid, Markelle Fultz and Dario Saric (Okafor?) could be on the court this year. Praying for health!
