And those are 3 tough opponents, playing elite teams of the East at Washington, at Toronto and vs Boston.

He definitely looks like he will be special. It's great to see the next generation of stars (Giannis, Davis, Simmons, Ball, Towns, Embiid) coming into their own. The league is in good hands.

Also its refreshing to see players dominating games without needing to shoot threes.
Awesome win over Dallas, choc full of Simmons highlights-

LOL, LeBron James IS mechanical. Dude has one of the ugliest games I have ever seen, especially to be the face of the league.

I always compared Ben Simmons to Lloyd Daniels........But 'Sweet Pea' had the smoothest J ever! Every other comparison between the two is on point!

Simmons should win MVP if Philly finish top 4 in East.
And he'll be a lock for MVP if they finish top 2.

They have the 2nd hardest schedule in the NBA so far, and are 6-4, and Houston beat them on the buzzer so almost 7-3.

I would be surprised if the sixers are not in the playoffs this season.

Saturday was a reminder of how far they have to go. There's a lot of young talent there, but they need experience and development on both ends.

1st round fodder in the East? Maybe. I doubt it, but maybe.
