We have all forgotten who Ben Simmons actually is as an NBA player

The biggest story of the NBA offseason was the ugly divorce of Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers. But that may have clouded his legacy.

The biggest story of the NBA offseason has been the ugly divorce of Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers. But that may have clouded his legacy.

Simmons has received his share of criticism of late from fans, the media, executives around the league and even from his teammates. Even though many of those critiques have been fair, at this point we may have lost sight of what kind of player Simmons is when he is in his groove and playing his unique brand of basketball.

First, let’s offer a quick refresher. Since entering the league, in his first four seasons, Simmons has won Rookie of the Year and has also made three All-Star appearances as well as two First-Team All-Defense honors. That’s not exactly the resumé of someone who is a scrub.

He may not have performed to reach his expectations against the Atlanta Hawks in the postseason. His jump shot may never even become a part of his game in any meaningful way. Ultimately, both he and Philadelphia may be better off if he is not in their future plans.

But don’t let any of that make you lose sight of the positive contributions that Simmons is capable of providing to a basketball team, regardless of where he lands.

Nerlens Noel: ‘I’m one of the best big men defensively in this league’

Knicks center Nerlens Noel discussed what he wants in NBA free agency, his time with the Knicks, 76ers, and Chris Paul with Michael Scotto.

New York Knicks center Nerlens Noel will soon enter the unrestricted free agent market as one of the most coveted centers.

The Sacramento Kings and Toronto Raptors, as reported by HoopsHype, along with the Charlotte Hornets, Dallas Mavericks, and Brooklyn Nets, per SNY, are among those expected to have interest in Noel.

After making $5 million this past season with the Knicks, Noel could double that salary this summer. Noel helped anchor a Knicks defense that ranked 13th in opponent rim field goal percentage last season (63.2 percent) to the best in the league this year (60.5 percent). The Knicks also had a 25-16 record when Noel started and 16-15 when he did not.

With free agency at the start of August nearly upon us, Noel spoke with HoopsHype about his time playing for coach Tom Thibodeau, what he’s looking for in free agency, and a look back at his career thus far, including his time with the 76ers during the “Trust the Process” era.
