Ben Simmons was ejected from Monday's game. He has almost as many fouls as points in his first three games with the Nets. Simmons has put up 17 points, 14 fouls, 18 rebound, and 21 assists in three games. At one point, Simmons was thought to be better than this guy because he came out of LSU. Simmons is the most overrated No. 1 overall draft pick of the last 20 years. Is it possible that at least? The most boring player of all time.

Simmons missed the first year of his NBA career with a foot injury, which was the beginning of his NBA career. Since it was his official debut, he won theRookie of the Year and was named to the All-Freshman Team. Ben's first two years were a success, and it looked like he was going to become a star.

Simmons peaked as a scorer in his second season, when he averaged 17 points with 7.8 assists and 8.8 rebound. Since the beginning of the year, he has declined little in each category. Simmons was traded away from Philadelphia to Brooklyn at the trade deadline.

Sometimes a player can get the benefit of the doubt when they come into a league with a lot of hype. During a time when the NBA was looking forward to the future, the comparisons between James and Simmons were made. They looked for a new face to replace Michael Jordan. You need an heir apparent to the throne in a league with star power.

The torch should have been passed to Simmons by now. He has been an All-Star, All-NBA, and All-Defensive player, which is great. Is it possible to point out an aspect of Ben's game that has improved since he joined the NBA? You can't

James was able to add different aspects to his game. Early on, Simmons was compared to Magic Johnson. Since peaking in his second year, the former Sixer has fallen off. It is a fact and not just an opinion.

Simmons is a player with all the talent in the world, but he is more interested in being a celebrity ball player than improving on the court. It might be something in his head. I would understand if that is the case. That doesn't change the fact that Simmons' game isn't as good as it was seven years ago

It isn't all Ben's fault The blame goes to those who started throwing out comparisons to the two superstars. That may have made people think that Simmons was never going to live up to their expectations. He never felt like he cared to be great because he didn't have the talent. Without binoculars, you could see Simmons' talent. He is gifted, but at a certain point something inside needs to push you past that.

Jordan wasn't projected to be one of the greatest players of all time despite his talent. Simmons was put on a pedestal by comparing him to other players. These are two of the five greatest players the NBA has ever seen, and Simmons isn't even a top-15 player in his era.

The first three games of the season could be an indication of how rusty the team is. Simmons had not played NBA basketball in a long time. Fouling out in two of those games is a bad look. After the game, he complained about it.

It wasn't a fight. He called it a mistake. Simmons stated that it is what it is. It's really difficult. The only thing I can do is support my team. It's frustrating. It's not a crime. It was bullshit. It's frustrating because it's a late game and it's a physical game. The NBA is the game. This isn't high school. High school is not what it is. Some people are going to die. It's a sport.

Brooklyn's situation was already a mess and it doesn't look like Simmons will make things any better if he continues down this path.
