    This is basically a goat card

    13

    You can basically say that about any new opal

    3

    especially the new kawhi, he's not "basically" a goat card he is a goat card. EVERY stat is 98 or 99 except for shot iq(which obviously doesn't matter AT ALL) and 95 post hook(which is still good for a SG lol). He also has EVERY single badge in the game(except for steady obviously), with 62 being on HOF. The man also comes with 100 pass-interception, 100 on-ball steal, 100 contest, 100 block, and 0 foul/hard foul tendencies.

    Random Facts:

    Benjamin David Simmons (born 20 July 1996) is an Australian professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played college basketball for one season with the Louisiana State University (LSU) Tigers, after which he was named a consensus first-team All-American and the USBWA National Freshman of the Year. Simmons was selected with the first overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft by the 76ers. After sitting out a year due to an injured right foot, he was named the NBA Rookie of the Year in 2018. Simmons was named NBA All-Star in 2019 and 2020.

    Simmons attended Box Hill Senior Secondary College before moving to the United States to attend Montverde Academy in Montverde, Florida. In his only season in college, LSU began the season with high expectations, but failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Simmons left school to enter the NBA draft, becoming the third Melbourne-born number one overall pick (following Andrew Bogut and Kyrie Irving) in 11 years. Simmons is the son of an American-born father, Dave, who played pro basketball in Australia. A dual citizen of Australia and the United States, Simmons has played for the Australian national team.

    Early life

    Simmons was born in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy to father Dave and mother Julie.[1][2][3] His father is an African-American expatriate who became a naturalised citizen of Australia,[4][5] and his mother is a white Australian.[4] He was raised alongside five brothers and sisters—Melissa, Emily, Liam, Sean, and Olivia—the first four being from his mother's previous marriage.[2][6] His father played college basketball for Oklahoma City University in the United States before turning professional with the Melbourne Tigers in Australia's National Basketball League in 1989.[7]

    Simmons was raised in Newcastle from the age of 18 months while his father played and coached in the city. Simmons began playing basketball at the age of seven in the Newcastle Hunters' under-12 representative team and played two more years for Lake Macquarie and Newcastle.[8] While in Newcastle, he also played junior rugby league.[9][10]

    At age 10, Simmons returned to Melbourne and began playing junior basketball for the Knox Raiders.[11] Along with basketball, he also played Australian rules football at the junior level.[12] In Year 7, while attending Whitefriars College, Simmons was named MVP after he helped Whitefriars win the Year-7 Division 1A Basketball premiership.[13]

    As a teenager, Simmons was torn between his two loves of basketball and Australian rules football,[14] but eventually decided to focus on basketball.[15][16][17] In Year 9, at the age of 15, Simmons played basketball for Box Hill Senior Secondary College at the 2011 Australian Schools Championships[9] before taking up a scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport in 2012.[18] Later that year, Simmons made his first appearance in the United States at the renowned Pangos All-American Camp for basketball prospects.[19][20][21] Despite being only 15 years old, he was chosen to represent Australia at the 2012 FIBA Under-17 World Championship.[9]
    High school career
    Sophomore year

    In January 2013, Simmons moved to the U.S. to compete against boys of comparable size and athleticism.[9][19] He attended Montverde Academy in Montverde, Florida, where he immediately started playing. In April 2013, he helped Montverde rally from a 16-point deficit to beat New Jersey's St Benedict's 67–65 in the final of the High School National Tournament.[9] After competing in the Jordan Brand Classic International Game,[22] he returned to Melbourne where he joined the Bulleen Boomers of the Big V competition in June 2013.[23] He played six games for Bulleen while averaging 12.3 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.3 steals, and 2.3 blocks per game.[24]
    Junior year

    Simmons returned to Montverde Academy for his junior season in 2013–14. On the season, Simmons averaged 18.5 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game while shooting 69 percent from the field and 77 percent from the free throw line. He recorded 88 blocks as well. Montverde finished the season with a 28–0 record, closing with a 71–62 victory over Oak Hill Academy in the High School National Tournament at Madison Square Garden. Simmons had 24 points and 12 rebounds as he earned MVP honours.[25][26] Following the season, he was named America's top high school junior and was voted MVP at the National Basketball Players' Association Top 100 camp.[27]
    Senior year
    Simmons in the 2015 McDonald's All-American Game

    On 12 November 2014, Simmons signed a National Letter of Intent to play college basketball for Louisiana State University (LSU).[25]

    On 28 January 2015, Simmons was named as a starter for the East team to compete in the 38th annual McDonald's All-American Game.[28][29] On 10 March 2015, he was named the Morgan Wootten Award winner, given annually to the best male McDonald's All-American player who exemplifies outstanding character, exhibits leadership, and embodies the values of being a student-athlete in the classroom and in the community. In doing so, he became just the second player from a Florida high school to win the award behind Austin Rivers in 2011.[30] He was then named the Naismith Prep Player of the Year on 12 March[31] and the Gatorade National Player of the Year on 24 March after leading the Eagles to a 28–1 record and a berth in the High School National Tournament for the third straight year.[32] In 29 regular season games, he averaged 28.0 points, 11.9 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.6 steals per game while shooting 70.7 percent from the field and recording 24 double-doubles.[32]
    Simmons at a closed McDonald's All-American practice

    After competing in the 2015 McDonald's All-American Game on 1 April, Simmons led Montverde Academy to a third consecutive High School National Tournament title with a 70–61 win over Oak Hill Academy on 4 April at Madison Square Garden. He again earned MVP honours after recording 58 points and 35 rebounds over the three-day tournament.[33][34] He then competed in the 2015 Nike Hoop Summit for the World Team on 11 April and scored 13 points in a 103–101 win over Team USA.[35]

    Considered a five-star recruit by ESPN.com, Simmons was listed as the No. 1 power forward and the No. 1 player in the nation in 2015.[36]
    College career

    Entering his freshman year of college, Simmons began his career on a four-stop national tour in Australia with the LSU Tigers men's basketball team. Relishing the opportunity to show his teammates where it all began for him,[37] Simmons made his debut for LSU on 15 August in an 89–75 win over the Newcastle All-Stars in the first game of LSU's preseason Australia trip. His double-double of 22 points and 10 rebounds led the way for the Tigers, playing at the Newcastle Basketball Stadium where his father played professionally for the Newcastle Falcons in the late 1990s.[38] The Tigers completed their five-game Australian tour with a 3–2 record, and over the five games, Simmons averaged 20 points and nine rebounds per game to lead the team in all major statistical categories.[39][40] Upon returning to the United States, Simmons was featured on the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook 35th anniversary cover,[41] was named the SEC's Preseason Player of the Year,[42] and earned Associated Press preseason All-America team honours.[43] His Preseason Player of the Year honour made him just the second freshman to earn the award, joining Kentucky's Julius Randle in 2013, and his All-America team honour made him just the fourth freshman to be honoured on the preseason team.[43]

    On 13 November 2015, Simmons made his college debut in LSU's season opener, recording a double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds as a starter in a win over McNeese State.[44] He helped LSU start the season 3–0 before recording 21 points, 20 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals in a loss to Marquette on 23 November.[45] On 2 December, he helped LSU break a three-game losing streak by recording 43 points, 14 rebounds, 7 assists, 5 steals and 3 blocks in a 119–108 win over North Florida. His 43 points were the most for a Tigers player since Shaquille O'Neal had 43 against Northern Arizona on 28 December 1991.[46] After recording 14 points and 10 rebounds in a win over Kentucky on 5 January 2016, Simmons was dubbed the best all-round player since LeBron James by NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson.[47] On 11 February, he was named to the 35-man midseason watchlist for the Naismith Trophy.[48] Nine days later, Simmons came off the bench for the first time after being removed from LSU's starting line-up for their game against Tennessee due to academic reasons.[49] Following the conclusion of the regular season, Simmons was named first-team All-Southeastern Conference and the league's Freshman of the Year on the 2016 Coaches SEC voting. He was also named to the eight-player All-SEC Freshman team.[50]

    The team's regular season was largely regarded as a disappointment.[51] After ranking No. 21 in the preseason AP Top 25 vote, LSU finished the regular season with an 18–13 record, including 11–7 in SEC play.[52][53]

    As the fourth seed in the 2016 SEC Tournament, Simmons helped LSU (18–13) defeat Tennessee in the quarter-finals to move on to the semi-finals where they faced first-seeded Texas A&M. LSU bowed out of the tournament with a demoralising 71–38 loss to the Aggies, as Simmons was unsuccessful in leading the Tigers to an NCAA tournament berth.[54] Simmons completed the 2015–16 season having played in 33 games with 32 starts. He led the team in all major statistical categories except three-point and free throw shooting, finishing with averages of 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.8 blocks in 34.9 minutes per game, while shooting 56.0% from the field, 33.3% from three-point range and 67.0% from the free throw line.[55] In the SEC, he ranked fourth in points, first in rebounds, third in field goal percentage, fifth in assists, and second in steals.

    Following the announcement of the NCAA tournament field, with LSU failing to earn a bid, Tigers head coach Johnny Jones announced that the team would not play in any postseason tournament. On 21 March 2016, Simmons declared for the 2016 NBA draft, forgoing his final three years of college eligibility.[56] He withdrew from school at the conclusion of the season with plans to move immediately to Phoenix, Arizona in advance of the NBA draft.[57] He also signed with American sports agency Klutch Sports, which is primarily owned by Rich Paul.[58][59]
    Professional career
    Philadelphia 76ers (2016–present)
    Draft year injury (2016–17)

    In the week leading up to the 2016 NBA draft, Simmons' attitude and character were questioned by a number of NBA media analysts.[60] Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown, former Australian national team coach and a friend of the Simmons family, repudiated the claims being made and was content with Simmons' pre-draft behaviour.[60] On 23 June, he was selected by Brown and the 76ers with the number one overall pick in the 2016 draft, becoming the third Melbourne-born number one overall pick in 11 years (Andrew Bogut in 2005 and Kyrie Irving in 2011).[61] He was also the first college player in the modern era to be selected with the first overall pick despite never playing in the NCAA Tournament.[62]

    On 3 July 2016, Simmons signed his rookie scale contract with the 76ers and joined the team for the 2016 NBA Summer League.[63][64] While he shot the ball poorly during his first three Summer League games, Simmons was praised for his court awareness and passing ability for a big man.[65] He went on to be named in the All-Las Vegas Summer League First Team,[66] and in six Summer League games, he averaged 10.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game.[67]

    On 30 September 2016, Simmons rolled his right ankle during the 76ers' final training camp scrimmage. After receiving an X-ray and MRI of the foot and ankle, it was determined that Simmons had suffered a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone of his right foot,[68] and was estimated to miss three to four months.[69] However, on 24 February 2017, he was ruled out for the entire 2016–17 season after tests revealed that his broken right foot had not fully healed.[70][71]
