Colin Cowherd Puts Ben Simmons Ahead of Giannis & Harden
Please know that I try to avoid the taking the hot take artist cheese. I try so hard. There are those in the sports media world who throw out outrageous proclamations just so we’re talking about them the next day. Colin Cowherd is one of these people. He’s been a regular on this website for some of his spicy takes on Aaron Rodgers, but this time, it’s basketball. He ranked his top 10 players right now, and Ben Simmons ranked ahead of James Harden of the Houston Rockets and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks.
Colin Cowherd thinks Ben Simmons is a better player than the league MVP James Harden. This is beyond comical. pic.twitter.com/9m0cAu2B3W

This is an absolute wild take. I cannot believe he actually believes this shit. Simmons is a good player, but he’s not the fifth-best player in the NBA. You cannot say that when Simmons is a piss poor three-point shooting and basically cannot shoot from outside the post. I get Giannis has some similar issues, yet, he’s a better shooter than the young Australian star. You can’t cite the playoff success either. He helped in beating Miami, but that was due in large part to Joel Embiid returning in Game 3, then Boston bungled Simmons whilst Antetokounmpo took the C’s to seven games with him leading the way.
