    This kid is the future of the team.

    37 points off 13-21 shooting, 7-11 from three, 9 assists, and 6 boards in 48 minutes.

    That's DAMN impressive.

    Does it matter? Look at that efficiency in 48 fucking minutes. These are NBA players.

    Much of it against Buddy Hield and De’Aaron Fox. Very impressive.

    Offensively he was impressive I thought Trent had good game was impressed with his mid range game. Simons has 2 thing he needs work ball handling and defense.

    Simons had 20 in the first quarter, didn't he? Definitely 20+ in the first half.

    He handled himself well. Got credit for 2 turnovers but one really should have been a foul. Very efficient shooting and some 'tough' passes that were very un-rookie like.

    He had 23 in the first half against their main rotation guys. I don't see how anyone can discount that.

    Honestly, if you can’t get excited about this performance, why are you even a basketball fan?

    Simons with the highest PER as a starter in the NBA this season.

    Also keep in mind he has a pretty good wing (6'9 1/4) and a great vertical. You add that with his sweet stroke (at 19) and things look bright for the kid.
