Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash made a critical comment on one of his star player Ben Simmons’ shooting area. Steve believes that Simmons is a top player despite his sub-par shooting skills. He also said that the Nets drafted him for a different role on the roster. However, he didn’t specify about that.
Steve Nash said, “Very unique, that’s what makes Ben great. That’s why I don’t care if he ever shoots a jump shot for the Brooklyn Nets. He’s welcome to, but that is not what makes him special and not what we need. He’s a great complement to our team, and he’s an incredible basketball player because of his versatility.”
Steve Nash and Ben Simmons are excited to see how well Ben fits with the Brooklyn Nets’ legendary duo of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Nash commented, “I think they’ll have a certain element of cohesion out of the gates because they’re all really good basketball players, but hopefully it’s something that evolves. And they can continue to find ways to make each other better. I think that’s the beauty, that they actually fit really well together, but it may take time. Nash added, “But out of the gates, they’re still three great basketball players who I think are excited to play together and will make things happen immediately. But let’s hope that there’s a constant growth as well.”
Steve Nash has all praises for Nets star player Ben Simmons
Steve successfully defended the Suns’ player Ben Simmons shooting skills. He is confident that Ben will come back strong and form an unmatchable trio along with Kevin and Kyrie. The Brooklyn Nets have waited since February to see Ben Simmons return on the court, and he appears to be in good physical and mental spirits. Nash praised Ben saying, “I think Ben’s just an incredible playmaker. Size, speed, ability, unselfishness, he’s always looking to get guys open. He’s a great screener. He [has] terrific vision. With his size and speed, he’s able to push the ball in transition and also get into gaps, so a great fit for Kevin and Ky to try and make the game a little bit easier for them.”
