I too would play with LeBron James if I had the opportunity. But I am writing these words here. In addition, my jump shot is a blot. How really bad.
So Ben Simmons and I have something in common. Our long-range game does not exist. The similarities end there. On Monday, TMZ spotted Simmons at Los Angeles International Airport and decided to ask him what everyone wanted to know: Would he like to play with LeBron?
"When he comes," Simmons said, "I play with him."
Simmons and LeBron both play on the ball and are exceptional playmakers, but could the two presenters find a way to make it work?
"There's only one way to find that out, man," said Simmons.
TMZ also asked Simmons for a few other topics, including the Rookie of the Year. You can see the whole clip below.
After virtually killing the Celtics himself in Game 7 on Sunday, LeBron Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert blew himself away. Then Cleveland beat Meek Mills's "Dreams and Nightmares" in his postgame celebration. Simple math says LeBron is coming. Jokes aside, there are legitimate signs that the king may soon be on his way to South Philly.
The Sixers want to add a superstar, and this could be their last summer to do that. Head coach Brett Brown said that another "high-level free agent" is needed and that "we do not have to turn that into a calculus, it's pretty clear." LeBron and Simmons share the same agent – Rich Paul. Simmons previously called LeBron a friend and mentor. Joel Embiid delicately delved into the tampering with his exit-day interview and said he would answer that question on July 1st. Then the report is that LeBron is ready to play the ball. FS1's Chris Broussard said on May 8 that LeBron had spent his entire career on the ball "because he never had a teammate who was playmaker for others – Ben Simmons is that."
Some may argue that LeBron Simmons & # 39; could hinder development But using this argument as a reason for the Sixers, not signing LeBron is just silly. Whenever you get the best player to play the sport, you take it and find out later. Buckle up as we approach July 1st and that means we are approaching a decision from LeBron.
