For the Philadelphia 76ers to go anywhere in the 2020-21 season or in the near future, the team will need stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid to lead the way and be at their best.
Justin Anderson, who played with Simmons and Embiid in the 2017-18 season when they made the playoffs, notices a difference in the two superstars. “He’s been running the floor, even if he doesn’t get it when he’s the first one down there, he’s getting somebody else open. So that kind of basketball just leads to easy buckets and that’s something we’re big on this year, easy points.”
The Sixers plan to put the ball in Simmons’ hands a lot this upcoming season and allow him to just get out and run.
“Just connecting and building our chemistry in terms of where and when he wants me to cut,” Simmons said of he and Embiid.
