Just thought we needed a thread for it
There's talk of him being back late in the season.
This though. Don't look if you're squeamish...
It's not a compound fracture, makes all the difference in the world, unfortunately for Yow Yeh...There's talk of him being back late in the season.
How fucking horrific must Yow Yeh's break have been if it retired him if Howard can come back within 12 months of this. When I was watching I said to my mate that this was a career ender and I read today he's hoping to be back. Crazy
Simmons is a PF, he's 6'10" and can't shoot.Imagine if we could convince Irving to play for Australia as well, in a couple of years the side would absolutely give the Dream Team a run for its money.
C - Maker
PF - ??
SF - Simmons
SG - Exum
PG - Irving
Just the PF position but there are few young guys still coming through.
Yeah Baynes, how did I forget him? He’s a massive presence in the box. Anyway you look at it, if the Aussies don’t win at least a medal in the olympics in the next ten years, it will be super disappointing.Simmons is a PF, he's 6'10" and can't shoot.
Ingles is super underrated right now, elite 3p shooter & passer, crafty defender. A little further down the track we'll have Jonah Bolden at PF as well who was a 2nd round pick by the 76ers this season, currently playing a season in Europe due to lack of rosters spots in Philly, but looks good enough to be a rotation player in the NBA at some point.
You forgot Baynes as well, who's a solid backup C in Boston right now.
Very impressive stuff eh. I’ve been following him for awhile and didn’t think he had this much in him. Let’s see if he can keep it up and avoid injury. He could be anything.Ben Simmons scored a triple double today.
I could go into the stats and records he broke and is making but we could be here forever.
'Simmons is only the fifth player ever — and first since Shaquille O’Neal — to begin his career with four straight double-doubles, having already joined Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson as the only other man to begin with three or more games of 10+ points, 10+ rebounds and 5+ assists'
The Sixers, winless from their first three games, threatened to let a huge lead slip but held on for a 97-86 victory away at Detroit on Tuesday (AEDT).
Rookie Simmons was simply superb, notching 21 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists — all career highs — to secure a triple-double in just his fourth game.
