    Ben is a GM escape route at this point. "If Simmons was healthy, by golly this team could make some playoff noise."

    Ben Simmons will never be 100% cause I do not think he has the heart for the NBA or cares about it I will call it the Oden effect cause Oden was not in LOVE with Basketball and I believe he even said it but he was tall so he did it. I think Ben Simmons was good at it in HS and in the NCAA so he was like what else is there to do but go to the NBA or I can take a job where I make a fraction of what I might as a pro athlete.

    Watched a video today about how dominating Oden was even somewhat in pros. A fact I didn’t know was Connelly and Oden played together in high school and college. Oden won high school player of the year twice and use to play against Garnett

    My comment on Oden to Simmons I might have been wrong or remembering it wrong it's been like what 12 years or something like that but maybe it just the way I remembered it and maybe the fact it turned out bad clouded my memory of him.

    Wizards added more talent. They might be able to beat Portland next season. This is great news ;)

    This dude doesn't know what he speaks of. Greg LOVED basketball and it mentally destroyed him to not be able to be out on the floor.
