Ben Simmons is going to make some NBA team – maybe the Celtics but definitely not the Knicks or Nets – very happy sooner rather than later.

He’s the prototype point forward who is unselfish to a fault and good enough to be making a contribution in the NBA right now. “He’s a very unique player,” says Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski. “Because of his size, athleticism and his ability to handle the ball he is unique.”
