I reckon he'll go to Boston
I agree, and I think he really started to put that team on his back at the end of the game, he also showed that he can get to the free throw line which is encouraging. As I said if he can develop anything resembling a reliable mid range jumper he'll be unstoppable
If his improvement in his ft shooting is any indication I wouldnt worry about his jumpshot.
ESPN just picked him as the clearest #1 pick since LBJ. Big call, he's a top talent though. Odds are he'll end up in Pergatory, I mean Philly... then again, they'll sign him, and then trade him for a center. They love a center.
Nah I think Philly will get in the 2-4 range again lol. Lakers or Celtics will get him
Had a poor game today, his worst game so far in college, still put up pretty nuts numbers across the board.
4 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists, 3 steals, 3 blocks
He is playing literally 40 minutes a game though, so those numbers are slightly less impressive in that sense.
Takes a very specail player ala Jason Kidd or Magic Johnson to influence a game to such an extent when your shot isnt falling.
LSU are terrible. If he had just one player he could defer to, his job would be much easier.
Big game from Simmons today. This kid is gonna be all time good if he can get that jumper going half decently.
Fast forward to 8:10.
Preach it Stephen A Smith!
Ben Simmons is the next Kobe.
I was very impressed with his free throw shooting, 13 from 15, that's awesome considering he was only shooting 60% from the line in his senior year of high school. Even if he doesn't ever become a good shooter I think he's got enough tools to kind of get away with it, he's probably got the best handles I've ever seen on a guy who's a legit 6'10 and 245lbs, he might not have traditional back to the basket post moves like a Jahlil Okafor but with his mobility, strength and ball handling he'll cause plenty of problems down low
He looks so agile and nimble for a big guy. Dear I say it, some of his glides and ball handles looks so smooth and reminds me a bit of Step Curry. And he's only what? 19?
This kid is going to be special. Just needs to stay healthy.
He's the next LeBron in my eyes.
Such a great passer out of the low post, which is why you dont want him exclusively as your ball-handler.
Australian School Championships final is on today and if your able get a look at this William McDowell-White kid. Quite a few in the know think hes not far behind Simmons as a prospect
Had 49/15/7st/5blk/2a in the semi yesterday, the game before had 43/14/4a.
Overal standard isnt the best but there are elite propspects on most teams. And in the final today he goes up against Lake Ginnindera who feature 3 top Aussie juniors i.e. Dejan Vasiljevic 6"3"Sg, Jack White 6"7" SF and Bol Kuol 6"8" Pf//C.
Dj and White are both future Boomers.Vasiljevic has Louisville, LSU, California, Miami and Stanford after him while White is said to be heading to Boise State.

Any whispers about WMW regarding colleges?
A few are said to be have offered, Louisville and Michigan state being the most prominent. Michigan State would be great for him. Playing for Tom Izzo ( best coach in college ball) as part of easily his greatest ever recruiting class. And thats not including Josh Jackson (#1 2016)who the Spartans are favorites for.
Talk he may go the NBL route though.
Jeebus, 4 years since I started this thread and pay-off day is tomorrow, and in a wonderful example of serendipity I've come down with a horrible flu *cough* *cough* so will have to stay home.
Obviously Ben is the headline act, will go first and will be ROTY. The 76'ers will surround him with complimentary talent and Joel Embiid will finally get to play, and if he's a crock, theyll replace him in next years draft which may be the greatest class of all time in terms of numbers of elite talent.
Josh Green watch has begun.
16 yo , 6"6" Guard, 6"10" wingspan.
Sophomore going to school in the USA. Currently ranked in the top 40 of his class but expected to rise. Seen some comments that he's the 2nd best guard in his class.
The captain of duke with eleven rebounds v Kentucky
