Ben Simmons is Getting Closer

Jim Adair - January 10, 2017

Only a couple of weeks after he was shooting in the shadows at practice, Ben Simmons played some 5-vs-0 sets today and, according to Brett Brown, was doing cuts at 80%.

Brown said the steps are “small” but significant. I’d put money that he’s still weeks away. The Sixers, as expected, are handling Simmons’ recovery with the utmost care and secrecy. There’s no full speed, no defense, and he’s just running sets, but the clock is ticking. Hopefully it’ll tick quickly, because I don’t know how many Instagram pictures with a stopwatch emoji I can take.

    Looks like Tarek and Christina split up. That girl needs a real firm hand and Tarek was just too wishy-washy.

        Can he help tutor the dumb b*tch that was a half credit short of graduation or smack the little bast*ard that jumps in the pool? Or the nine people that all find the same damn kids toy. And who puts their home phone number on a kid’s toy?

        He’s better than Angelo but that’s not really saying much. Both are unlistenable.

        I feel bad for you dopes that listen to sports radio… you’re quickly approaching the most painful part of the year. NFL Draft talk for four straight months! Every piece of delco trash calling in with amazing trade ideas or a way to move up in the draft. HOLD ON TO YOUR CALF TATOOS BOYS!

    Can you just have a separate Crossing Broad page for all the Sixers’ posts, so everyone doesn’t have to scroll through all that fuckin’ nonsense?
