Simmons Ranks Just Ahead of Westbrook on Top NBA PG List

Article Summary:

Despite being listed at six-foot-eleven inches, Simmons plays a position that wouldn’t typically suit a player of his size. While Simmons certainly lacks key skills needed for the point guard position, he’s made up for some of his setbacks in other ways.

“Simmons remains a solid playmaker, a downright terror in transition and finished second in Defensive Player of the Year voting last season, so even at his lowest, he was still an All-Star in 2020-21, hence his positioning in our rankings.

But the uber-talented point guard is going to have to show some improvement on the offensive end next season to get any higher than this.”

At this point in his career, Simmons has reached his ceiling offensively. While being viewed as a top ten point guard in a guard-driven league is a solid feat, Simmons entered the NBA with much higher expectations.
