Ben Simmons scared of being shown up by the United STATES?

Was ben simmons shaking in his boots to take on a USA by team? Is he scared of the United states C grade team? Was he scared of getting EXPOSED?

250 million and still can't hit a 3 point shot or even a mid range 2 point jumper. Significantly worse than our elite Australian womens national team shooters. The stats back it up, his three points percentage is (zero percent), including wide wide open 3 pointers.

Makes you wonder.

Everthing I have said are facts and can be varified by looking at the statistics. Australiano women destroy ben simmons from the 3 and mid range.

I posed a question if he is afraid, if Ben Simmons would like to refute this himself then I would like to hear it.

Wait isn't he the best basketballer we’ve ever had? No way a woman can do anything better than him remember.

He is a better basketball player than any female.

Part of it may be that he is worried about the international game as it has less spacing for him to work with. It would make his lack of outside shot look worse.

Yes I agree. So he must shoot 3s better than women because he plays in the NBA.

If it was just about shooting 3s in an empty gym, then a lot of social league players would call themselves better than Simmons. It's not. Dynamics of the game matter.

"Part of it may be that he is worried about the international game as it has less spacing for him to work with."

That's the consolation in his decision for this World Cup. On the other hand, his raw skill and athleticism remain tantalizing.

The Boomers players have openly stated that they would have to play differently with Simmons in the lineup. Now the team can focus on honing the system that was already established and effective in 2016.

We know that he is being labeled with the tag 'overrated' and there are bigger clouds building.

Seems like this decision of Ben to run away from this will do very little to quell those sentiments.

Most ppl payed the big money in the hope Ben would prove the doubters wrong.

The doubters now grow ever louder, the nervousness Bens shot gets more pronounced and Bens mindset is weary. His arm turns to jelly as soon as he is left open on the 3 point linemail, and his shots miss time and time again.

I know you're feelings are hurt because he's not playing but to argue he's scared of being exposed because he has never hit an NBA three just shows how much your logic fails when you speak based on emotion. Get a hold of yourself.

I hit 3's at about 40% in my ABA career. Will Ben Simmons split his contract with me?

He's obviously not better than me

Simmons behaviour has been two-faced, hasn't it?

Yes, I'm in..oops sorry, I'm out. Bad luck that you were looking forward to a rare opportunity to see me play for your, oops sorry, our country. Tough about your hard earned too...gee it sucks for you doesn't it.

Fans every right to be disappointed.

Gee, is that a sore calf, a back strain, a nasty case of me first, I see developing several weeks before the Olympics?
