    Stone has handled this well. He's made more good moves than bad ones. Not trading for simmons was a great one.

    Why is Simmons on the bench in the clutch?

    Perfect Karma. Morey and Harden both lose this year.

    If Simmons was shooting dodging the bullet was no big deal.

    Morey is going to get so much heat not trading for Lowry or Harden, harden cost the nets the series by not coming in shape, and Simmons is actual hot garbage and he’s virtually almost untradable

    All this time I was pissed that we traded Harden for nothing. I failed to realize that getting nothing was better than getting Ben Simmons.

    Ben Simmons’ last three games: 8 points, 6, and 5. I guarantee he’ll be on the trading block soon. However, he just signed a five-year contract, so good luck trading him unless you plan to give up draft picks. Thank goodness the Rockets didn’t trade for him or they’d be stuck with someone that can’t dominate or hit FT’s during clutch time. Seriously, his FT shooting is worse than Capela’s. Yeah, he plays decent defense and knows how to distribute the ball, but he can take over a game when it matters most, in the playoffs.
