Tough luck for Ben Simmons and the 76ers! Hopefully, he will be back 100% in January and February.

 

As for the rookie of the year, I would not say Brandon Ingram will win it. I would say it will be either Kris Dunn, Buddy Hield, or a surprise rookie. I think Dunn and Hield will be used more by their coaches than Walton using Ingram this season.

Losing on purpose and tanking season after season in a bid to get high picks and dig your way out of the hole you created can kick back on you.

 

No sympathy for the 76ers, but it sucks for Simmons.

I was just reading reports where they say Simmons agent doesn't want him to play this season at all.

You mean like karma?  I don't think Simmons playing for the Sixers or how they've run their team the last few years has anything to do with him getting injured.

neither do the 76ers, they want that top 3 pick for their next shooting guard. 


"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
