Hello, this is my first review in a while and I’m going to be doing it on Lionel Simmons, because why not.

Bought for: 12k

Strengths:

-Slashing: This man is an insane slasher.With many good badges like HOF showtime, HOF contact finisher and many more. Not only that, but he can get to the rim very well with his insane speed at the sg position (94), hof qfs and good sigs he blows by everyone. You may think that’s the end, but no he has a 95 driving dunk and a 90 vertical with all showtime dunks.

  • Shooting: Lionel has an 89 three ball which is more than usable, gold range, hof CaS, HoF steady and more. Not only that but he is one of the first players in the game to have a release on very quick so on next gen, with a insanely fast release and HoF blinders, he is unguardable. If you remember Danny Manning from last year, his release is similar to Danny’s.

  • Defence: Lionel has a high rating of 95 lateral quickness and a whopping 12 HoF defensive badges including intimidator, clamps and interceptor. Not only that but he has a 90 steal rating and insane defensive tendencies all around.

  • Rebounding: As 80 rebounding isn’t that good in general, it is great for a shooting guard, even though it isn’t very relevant.

  • Length: What can I say... 6’7 with a 7’3 wingspan is insane for a shooting guard, which makes him a better defender and makes it easier to get to the basket.

  • Stamina: A 95 stamina is solid enough to keep you dribbling for a while and keep him on for a while.

  • Passing: An 84 passing accuracy with diner, flashy passer and bail out which is more than enough to be a good passer.

Weaknesses:

  • Behind the back(next gen): Pro 6 sucks on next gen, no explanation needed.

  • Release(for some people): Some people find Lionel’s release hard to time, which I understand and apparently the upper sucks on current gen.

Recommended Strategy: "Slash to basket, Catch and shoot, primary ball handler, three hunt.”

Use if: You need a Shooting Guard that can do everything for cheap

Don't use if: You don’t need him or you are extremely broke.

Bottom Line: I totally recommend buying Lionel, he is a beast
