SJ - March 15, 2021

During Friday's Wizards loss to the 76ers, Wizards broadcaster Justin Kutcher called Ben Simmons "one of the most overrated players in the NBA."  He says Simmons get so much attention it's overshadowing when Tobias Harris has been doing.

"I’ve said it before and I know I’ll take flack for it.  I think Ben Simmons is one of, if not the most, overrated players in the NBA.  He’s gotten so much love and attention that people are not paying attention to what Tobias Harris is actually doing on the floor."

Simmons was asked about the comments and didn't seem to be too concerned, although he decided to take a shot at the broadcaster's height.

"He’s like a 5-foot-5 commentator for the Wizards.  I can’t give it too much attention."

I love the saltiness on both ends, but is the Wizards announcer wrong?  Dude doesn't even shoot the three.  That's like Shaq not dunking in his prime.  Today's game is all about the deep ball.
