Hope Sergio doesn't mistakenly get rounded up in a sweep.

Does NBA TV usually air the pre-season games?

Has it ever happened in any sport where someone the caliber of Ben Simmons is completely overshadowed by another rookie teammate

I like TLC, too, but I don't think he overshadows Simmons.

Is he really being overshadowed nationally tho or is it just sixers diehards being overwhelmed by live practice shots after years of seeing only vague glimpses. It's like seeing a chupacabra get captured and loaded into the zoo

I know it's just clips from training camp scrimmages but Simmons seems a lot faster in the open floor than I remember.
Two days later I get a text back that says I'm a basketball player and a businessman, not a Thundercat.

I thought the same thing between his college tape and summer league

Yeah it's probably just Philly (and some of basketball Twitter) that's focusing more on Embiid. Probably pretty cool, too, for Simmons to stay somewhat under the radar for now

It took me fifteen minutes... 1990 Detroit red wings. Kieth primeau, #3 pick/Sergei Federov 74th pick '89.

That is about the closest I could come up with. It's the mystery factor which are caused by one of these:

1. Injury. Blake griffin, embiid
2. International superstar. Suzuki, dice k, kukoc, sabonis
3. Two sport star. Jackson, sanders
4. Unique physical status Abbott, Bol, muresean
5. Holdout

But yeah... cant think of anyone other than embiid is overshadowing someone of the caliber of a Ben Simmons.

It would be hard to find two more anticipated first year players in the NBA on the same team for sure. Hopefully the stars align and they light it up like hell. Going to be pretty fun and definitely interesting.

Sam Hinkie's follows on Twitter are pretty interesting and in some cases cool. I appreciate he's not one of those popular turds that only follows 43 people. There's lots of interesting people on twitter!

anyway, he follows Matt Carey and MC didn't even brag about it.

Perhaps even more interesting, his first 4 follows are Embiid, Simmons, Jah & Noel in that order.
