    Simons says "3-pointer."
    Simons says "dunk."
    "Lose."

    Sorry man, Simons didn't say that!

    One thing I loved about Simons is how pure his shot is. When it's on it barely touches the net. That's a sign of great shooting potential. His shot looks a lot like Dame's too where it doesn't look like it takes a lot of effort to shoot from range or on the step back.

    Yeah those highlights are all huge IMO. (The complete offensive package )

    Quick easy stroke from deep
    Good floater in the lane (aided by his long arms)
    Good hops and finish on the dunk
    Nice step back mid range shot
    Good handles for a SG

    We may end up giving Neil major props for this pick in a few years.

    ESPN (Pelton) lists Simons as our interesting "player to watch":
    Portland Trail Blazers
    [​IMG]
    Anfernee Simons | Guard

    Having withdrawn from playing at the draft combine, Simons has never played a competitive game against NBA-caliber opponents as an early entrant directly from IMG Academy. So it will be particularly interesting to see how Portland's first-round pick deals with the jump in level of play. -- Pelton

    Blazers' summer league roster

    After 2 games:
    2018 Summer League Tournament Statistics
    Player Team GP MPG PTS FGM FGA FG% RPG APG SPG BPG
    Simons, Anfernee POR 2 19.0 11.5 8 15 53% 2.5 0.0 1.50 0.00

    Wiz Hot Take:
    He has scored in double figures in both of the games on 53% shooting. Not a 1-trick pony, either.

    I think a year with Dame and CJ will make him a killer.

    There's a time that such language is appropriate and other times when it's not. This is a time when it is appropriate. Yes, fuck the Lakers.

    He turned 19 a month ago. There is a small possibility he'll get a bit taller.

    which would be good since right now he's projecting to be an SG, not PG.

    Does it really matter that he is not 6'4" when his 6'9".25 wing is long enough?

    I grew almost 2 cm between 19 and 21 I think.

    It’s the additional 15 kg that makes the difference though.
