On the 2nd clip Simmons had a better look at the goal than the guy he passed to. The guy forced the shot and rimmed out.

If he's not the starting point guard, he's playing the wrong position.

Michael Jordan, Jason Kidd, Magic Johnson were all bad to mediocre shooters when they entered the NBA and became good jump shooters well into their careers. Jordan obviously was a little better than the other two.

Rondo disagrees. And Jason Kidd still can't shoot and magic was average at best as a jump a jump shot. He seems more like Rajan Rondo. How is Rondos jump shot ?

Can't wait to see this board's transition from hate/indifference/spite towards Ben to admiration/pride in about a year or two.

he's a different case, i don't think the love will be there for him, it will turn from spite to just apathy

Exactly! These same numbskulls will be praising the ground he walks on if he develops into one of the all time greats. Then they will be shouting he is an LSU Tiger and claiming they knew all along. Haters have small minds and small wieners.

2nd to last video where he's bringing it up in transition, pretty impressive.

Dude doesn't even look like the same player he was in college. I don't see how people can put this on JJ. Those skills can't be taught...polished, yes. But this footage is reminiscent of before he came to LSU, when he was dominating players. Dude was holding back at LSU. This being said, I've only seen this footage since he's been in the Summer League, and not looked at stats or other highlights.
