Why does Ben Simmons suck so bad?
During his recent appearance on the popular Podcast P with Paul George, Draymond Green discussed various topics related to the NBA.
However, it was his comments about Ben Simmons that captured the attention of basketball enthusiasts. Green analyzed what he believes is hindering Simmons from reaching his previous level of impact on the court, specifically referencing the pivotal playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks.
Green expressed his observation about players losing confidence in their game and questioned the transformation he witnessed in Simmons.
"You've seen people lose confidence in their game… Like Ben Simmons… He's still the same Ben Simmons we watch dominate in Philly. The only difference… is confidence… I know how it feels to lose confidence."

According to Green, Simmons remains the same dominant player he was during his time in Philadelphia.
The only discernible difference, according to Green, is a lack of confidence. He empathized with individuals who experience a decline in their self-assurance, acknowledging the negative impact this can have on their performance.
