You are done defending him now right?

Surely you have seen the light?
Isiah Thomas on Ben Simmons:

“They dоgged him… Yоur team, yоur coach, and yоur organization is supposed to prоtect you in yоur bad moments, not air your dirty laundry… When Shaq was going like 4-18 at the fоul line, I didn't hear Phil Jacksоn dоgging Shaq… They weren't publicly dissing him.”

Because Shaq was the most dominant player in the NBA… despite his flaws he wasn’t running away in the big moments. What an awful analogy from him.

They also protected Ben for 5 years or whatever it was, he repaid them by refusing to work on his game.

Paid them back by being an all star every season...

He is clearly not saying Simmons is as good as shaq

What are you on about he was more hated than the unabomber after playing in g7
Because he quit, that’s the reason.

Refusing to take a shot, passing up open dunks. Once again he refused to step up. He was protected by the org for years. If he wasn’t going to work on his game after being coddled what more could they try to do?

He wants all the benefits of being a ‘superstar athlete’ without any of the draw backs.

How did he keep Trae to 1/14 (who had 50 next game g1 finals... V all defence jrue) And near record game7 assists if "he quit"?

If thybulle doesn't miss the lay up the narrative doesn't go so haywire.

Because a max player can’t play 1 half of the ball.

He doesn’t care about improving his game he has shown that by not improving on offence at all after all these years.

He has shown it by constantly dogging basketball Australia which could have really helped him

He has shown it by refusing to play this year and he only shown up when he was going to lose money, only spoken to people in the org when he was going to lose money.

This is despite the org releasing the money they fined him out of good faith and he still won’t show any back.

Butler shoots 20% from 3 for Miami. Triple single Draymond can't shoot or put up a floater.

Not everyone can be lebron.

National team basketball is irrelevant and sitting currently similar.

I am not just talking about 3 point shooting, I am talking about his unwillingness to even attack the paint because he is scared to get fouled.

Simmons is earning 11mil more per year compared to Draymond and on top of that I would say he is very much the exception. He is in one of the only situations I would say where he can excel like he does.

Lastly no one thinks he needs to be Lebron just stop that straw man

LeBron couldn’t shoot the 3 when he came into the league, but he worked his ass off to make it a threat in his game.

For someone who was under LBJ’s wing and annointed as the next king, Ben sure doesn’t have the same work ethic or dare to dream.

Speaking of which, haven’t really seen LeBron and BS together in any meaningful capacity in quite some time.
