Hack a Ben was the straw that broke the camels back but he went backwards after the all star break. This has been an issue since before the play offs they just made the issues even more noticeable.The problem is even bigger than that. He is the play maker of that team, he is their point guard. And he refused to handle the ball.
It all comes back to free throw shooting. Hack a Ben destroyed him. He was too scared to be in possession of the ball in case someone fouled him.
If your point guard refuses to handle the ball you have a massive problem.
“I’ve seen them shoot right-handed. It’s better form right-handed,” Redick said. “They do everything else right-handed. I don’t understand why you’re shooting a basketball left-handed.” Redick is correct. Simmons released the ball using his right hand on 67 shots this postseason, compared to just nine shots with his left hand. That rate is consistent with his career rate of using his right hand going back to his time at LSU.
Kind of, but I think it’s more that he really looks up to his dad, and I think he feels like he’d be letting his dad down if he shoots with his right coz his dad was a lefty and taught him to use his left. I think he needs to change to his right from what I’ve seen, but if he won’t do it he’s gonna go backwards.The dude is right handed, but I bet his ego won't allow him to switch mid career.
Thanks for your input.I'd rather have Thybulle than Simmons going to the Olympics for Australia, Ben is in the gutter until he stops being a wuss and bully his way to the paint and drive with aggression or work on his god damn shooting. Feel embarrassed that he'll represent Australia.
Ok, this is rubbish. His Dad was a right handed shooterKind of, but I think it’s more that he really looks up to his dad, and I think he feels like he’d be letting his dad down if he shoots with his right coz his dad was a lefty and taught him to use his left. I think he needs to change to his right from what I’ve seen, but if he won’t do it he’s gonna go backwards.
Did I read this right?Ben Simmons' shooting struggles were predated by years of confusion around what the problem is, Yaron Weitzman writes.amp.foxsports.com
Great article here.
No, it was to Ben's half brother who's a college coach.Did I read this right?
Rich Paul his agent (Dodgy best friend of Lebron) had him change his shooting coach to Rich Pauls brother???
As if Rich Pauls brother happens to be the best qualified shooting coach in the world.
