Standing 6-fot-10 and playing point guard gives Ben Simmons a tremendous advantage when the ball is in his hands. His handle and ability to drive defenders off the dribble are as good as any point guard in the league. His size allows him to see over smaller defenders, which gives him just one more advantage to add to his outstanding passing skills. But what has quickly set him apart from other point guards is his defensive skillset. It's incredibly rare for a rookie to make a significant impact as a defender, but Simmons stepped into a quality lineup and proved himself up to the challenge of defending the league's top scorers. He can literally defend all five positions, something only a few players in league history can lay claim to. His defensive instincts are matched by his burst off the ball, which allows him to play help defense with the occasional blocked shot. It won't be long before he's one of the top two-way players in the NBA. Simmons has autographed this limited edition (125) '25 Blue' 20" x 24" designed image in blue paint pen.
