    Both never got past the second round playoffs in their career in the weak East
    Wall has Beal and Simmons has Embiid
    Both can’t shoot beyond 15 feet
    Wall career 3pt 32.4%, 2018-19 season 30%

    Simmons miss one whole season due to broken leg
    Wall miss 735 days due to Achilles injury

    question
    In order to play in the conference finals, who should be the 2nd banana and who should be the third piece?

    I read that the best offer for Harden will be Simmons.
    Who should be team leader this season or next season, not going forward

    What. Even if we put aside the absurdity of mentioning Ben Simmons, Wall is like 10 years his senior.

    One of the dumbest threads I've seen in a while, and I've made some pretty dumb ones myself.

    Philly is doing good right now and looking to move forward with what they have right now.

    Why do people keep mentioning Simmons like it’s a foregone conclusion that we are gonna deal for him? He’s a good young player but relative to other options there are better players for the centerpiece of a harden deal. Boston and Denver can both offer better players. I’m still hoping a dark horse team like Memphis gets involved so we can also consider guys like Morant.

    anyway I think all of this focus on Simmons is misplaced. Philly really doesn’t have what we need. With Wall here for 2 more years I’m not sure why we’d be looking at a guy like Simmons anyway. Having the worst shooting backcourt in the league would not excite me.

    OP forgot one magic word in this post, which might have saved him all the inevitable grief to come . . . “If”

    I think Ricky Rubio would be a great team leader.

    sounds like we already had Simmons but we still have harden. So it is irrelevant
    Harden still in charge not wall yet.

    Terrible thread. For one, the team picks the leader, not a fan board.
