>> us a a pleasure. >> how old does it make you feel that this by was born in 1989. >> hey listen you can take me i don't know if you want to date yourself. >> i'm old anyway. >> we're all excited here but why is he such a good fit for sixth tours play alongside embiid or saric. >> is there a encore reason which is perfect fit next to simmons hoist true facilitate or. all ben simmons wants to does set guys up to score, shoot, markelle fultz did that in college but his natural position toys shoot basketball , take it to the rack and be aggressive. that is going to be all they will ask him to do right away stepping in. off the court he completes this four group of kid right now who will grow up. that is difference. yesterday we talk about just excitement of the city and building up to last night but you saw the young kid out there. this is a generation now that will grow were four young kid
to see them play for hopefully over a decade. >> he is being compared to dwayne wade, james harden is that a fair assessment. >> we like to say this next guy will be a hall of famer and like to look at aspects of the game. he has dwayne wade in him and james harden in him. those two guys are ball dominant scorers. they can do things from the outside, they can do things from the inside but they are also fast. >> we see struggles when it comes to transitions to the nba and difficulty of finding your shot. >> that is not as big of a concern for me with fultz because he is more natural shooter and scorer. problem with fultz or at least struggle will be early on he will be asked to pass the ball anybody who comes in the nba, ben simmons as well, first year point guard struggle when it comes distributing the basketball. he will get open shots. he will income down open shots it is nature, they will spread
ball around and they will have a lot of fun, that is huge. >> we are hoping embiid and simmons will be good to go. >> there is nothing i can tell but joel embiid, nobody, nobody can give you any vote of confidence other than just believe he will be healthy. we all believe he will be healthy. >> word we don't like to say hurt question raises now with this guy coming in because he had a knee injury as well. >> i understand, ben simmons look at it like a freak injury , other people have suffered that injury, even twice and they have been fine. kevin durant is perfect example. ben simmons has generational talent. there is no concern about his talent. fultz injury was there but he played through it. it hasn't been a concern you don't think it will be a concern. >> in the at all. >> there are jokes is that why they vetted him to make sure he is hit no concerns about fultz. >> sixers made other picks i wish they would go with some guys with common names here so
we can pronounce them. >> no, i can't. he is lativan center. we tried to do it, and you cannot even do that. >> we will call him ap until we learn later. >> ap. >> he will be a powerhouse. >> 7-foot two, shoot basketball, he need to get better on defense. he need to fill out a bit. >> he is a poor poor man certainty. >> we will be right back. fios is not cable. we're a 100% fiber optic network. now with our new fios gigabit connection, you get amazing download speeds up to 940 megs,
