  • when we talk about this Ben Simmons performance last night.

  • It's called historic because of certain caveats in there.

  • Five steals, shooting, 80%.

  • He just had a really good game, right?

  • That's the best way to look at it.

  • Yeah, and he's been absolutely incredible without Joe Joel Embiid.

  • And you can see why the Sixers organization always stresses about the fit with their two best players.

  • What strikes me, Trey is there's this incredible at times, level of negativity around Ben Simmons and his unwillingness to shoot three point shot, and it will eventually pinch them.

  • But we do not give this young man enough credit for what he is absolutely elite at, and that's a ton of things.

  • He has been performing at a first team all NBA defensive level all season.

  • He's legit.

  • 6 10 Congar did one through five without Joel, a times he's having to guard the centers, you know, in cross matches at times, just t get out of a bad switch.

  • Whatever the case may be, he's got elite speed and M and and his ability to put pressure at the rim.

  • They can post him against almost anybody.

  • He can finish left and right, and in this stretch without Joel, where they absolutely had to win games.

  • And I know you know some of the competition in the win streak is teams below 500 but you gotta win the games in front of you.

  • And Ben Simmons is a driving force behind what they're doing right now.

  • I guess it's a compliment to him in a way, Doors, because talking about him with with other greats LeBron James was talked about earlier his career.

  • Well, he's doing this really great, but he needs to improve on this.

  • This and this.

  • And he did Yanis onto the camp.

  • Oh, he's doing there is great, but he needs to improve on this and he went out and he did that.

  • And I guess that's what everybody's waiting to see.

  • Okay, Ben, you're playing great.

  • But there are things you need to improve upon me, and we haven't seen any of that yet.

  • Is that fair?

  • It's totally fair, and I wonder about this is a 23 year old young man who was given a Max contract who has been named an All Star and will be again this year and in his mind.

  • He knows what he's great out, and he can affect winning in a lot of ways.

  • Where this will show and what ultimately will motivate him is he'll get exposed against the best.

  • Defense is probably after the first round of the playoffs, or maybe before, and that is what's going to spur him to change things because he has not taken a three point attempt in over a month.

  • And this was after Brett Brown had said to him, You can tell his agent You can tell his family tell his girlfriend, Tell whomever I wanted at least 13 point attempt per game, so I don't There's something there and I don't know what it is and it's not, You know, it's not going to really come into sharp focus until the postseason when you get the elite defense.

  • Is that exposure?

  • Weaknesses.

  • Talking to Doris Burger, ESPN MBA analyst, going beyond the call for six years at Raptors.

  • Wednesday, seven Eastern on ESPN and just one more getting into the Sixers.

  • You mentioned this all happening without joy, oil and bead.

  • We know how much Joel Embiid is meant to this team, but is there anything to read into with this?

  • Or is it just him stepping up with a guy out?

  • It's that and there is nothing to look into it.

  • Because if you look historically over there, their time with Joel Embiid, he's to me.

  • He has the potential to be the best local center in the league.

  • They can direct post.

  • Um, he's got incredible touch.

  • He's got face of game there, on and off numbers defensively without him.

  • Typically, um, we really show you how important he is.

  • I am in No A suggesting you don't need Joel Embiid.

  • This is a guy in Ben Simmons who's helped buoy them in a tough stretch.

  • But they need Joel Embiid.

  • I would read nothing else into.

  • It doesn't change the fact that they're still you know, that static or excuse me, that dynamic boy.

  • Who are we when bolt or on the floor?

  • Because that question Israel Doris Burke with us, they clearly need Joel Embiid, and the MBA clearly needs something, and that something is coming Tomorrow.

  • It is Z day.

  • Doris's Working Bees, ESPN.

  • One more time.

  • A Zion Williamson makes his debut for the pelicans again.

  • You can see on ESPN.

  • I guess the question I have for you is we're talking about this debut in ways that we sort of talked about the debut of a guy named LeBron James a few years ago.

  • I'm not sure that fair to Zion.

  • What are realistic expectations for him as he begins his NB a career boy.

  • That is a great question because I heard Jeff Van Gundy say That's early in the season about Zion and it really struck me.

  • I was just watching, Ah, game on ESPN.

  • We were just out of the gates and just Jeff made the statement.

  • You know, Zion Williamson has the potential and in all likelihood, has saved basketball and the organization in the world.

  • It was blown away by it, but that is the power of the draw of this young man, despite his tender age.

  • And there is just something so compelling about his athleticism, his basketball skill and his personality.

  • He just has that it factor.

  • And when you talk to him when you listen to him, uh, it's it's really exciting.

  • I can't wait.

  • And what I'm really curious about is to see how long they plan is.

  • It 456 minutes stretches how effective any be in those in those runs.

  • But the kid is special.

  • Listen, he look at his numbers.

  • In the preseason, he was absolutely dominant, and on a team that's really seemed to find itself, he gives him exactly what they need.

  • You know, they want to play fast.

  • They want to take freeze.

  • And now you have somebody with with elite athleticism who can put pressure on the rim and give Lonzo ball, who's played tremendously?

  • A You know, a stretch vertical target.

  • And so I just I can't wait.

  • I'm as excited as the next NBA fan.

  • I think this kid is so compelling.

  • Everybody's so looking forward to it, No doubt about it.

  • That's coming up Wednesday night.

  • Last night, the Lakers in Boston gets shelled by 32.

  • Is it just a Hey, it happens every now and then, or is there any worry there for you?

  • For the Lakers?

  • I think it's two things.

  • I think you had a Boston team that has really been struggling that was desperate for a win.

  • They were at home.

  • They got an incredible second quarter performance from from Jason Tatum, he continues to show us what he's capable of.

  • Their three best players played great, and the one thing I'm worried about long term for the Lakers.

  • And it's literally one thing.

  • And that's the elite shot making.

  • They were below 30% less.

  • I think there were 27.

  • They only made six threes.

  • The one thing I feel like they need is elite shot making, three point shooting.

  • But I'm not.

  • I'm not concerned.

  • I think they're 82 in their last 10.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube.
