Danny Green shared his thoughts on the comparison between LeBron James and Ben Simmons.
Green explained why he believes a comparison between James and Simmons is ‘unfair’.
“I see why there’s a comparison. Obviously, LeBron is one of the greatest to ever do it and Ben has the potential given the size, ability, and speed, but it’s unfair. It’s unfair to compare anybody to LeBron or compare anybody to Michael Jordan, especially at a young age.”
Ben is still learning the game and he’s still very good, but he still has a long way to go if he wants to be in that realm. This is an unfair comparison for anybody let alone Ben, but he has the tools and the potential to be that,” Danny Green noted, via Ky Carlin of USA TODAY SPORTS.
Simmons is averaging 12.8 points (52.5% shooting), 8.4 rebounds, 7.9 assists, and 1.7 steals for the Philadelphia 76ers this season.
