Ben Simmons is, in many ways, the NBA Rorshach test. How someone evaluates him my say more about that person than it does Simmons himself. In a city who is easily polarized by unique players, Simmons extends that notion nationwide.
His die hard fans will point to his historical pace of triple double games. His detractors will point to his limited perimeter range. His fans will point to his power and speed in the full court and in transition. His critics will point to his limitations in the half court and at the free throw line.
The truth, of course, lies in partially in both camps. But one thing is undeniable, Ben Simmons is an NBA All-Star in 2019.
