Better Future Talent: Ben Simmons or Andrew Wiggins


The NBA has several young players with bright futures. Andrew Wiggins, who has played two seasons, has proved that he will be a fantastic player in the future. Ben Simmons, who will play for the first time next season, has shown that he has talent in several aspects of the game. But who will become the better player Andrew Wiggins or Ben Simmons?

Andrew Wiggins:

In Wiggins’s time in college, where he played for the Kansas Jayhawks, he had good stats. He averaged 17.1 PPG 5.9 RPG 1.5 APG and 1.2 SPG. But Wiggins surprisingly has played just as good in the NBA unlike most players. In his time in the NBA, Wiggins has averaged 18.8 PPG 4.1 RPG 2.0 APG and 1.0 SPG and he was named NBA ROTY. He has helped the Minnesota Timberwolves become a team that fans believes could be a Championship threat in a few years.

Ben Simmons:

In Simmons’ time in college, with the LSU Tigers, he was fantastic. Simmons averaged 19.2 PPG 11.8 RPG 4.8 APG and 2.0 SPG. Although Simmons has not played in the NBA yet, it is easy to see that he will be a great player. He has been compared to Magic Johnson because of his size, great passing ability, decent ability to score, and good rebounding ability.

Both Ben Simmons and Andrew Wiggins still have things to prove. Ben Simmons has to prove that he is capable of leading the Philadelphia 76ers and getting others involved like he is expected to do. While Andrew Wiggins still has to prove himself as a star player for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Whenever these two promising young talents end their careers, Andrew Wiggins will be known as the better scorer thanks to his decent outside shooting compared to Simmons’ poor shooting. But Simmons will be known as a better passer, rebounder, team leader, and ultimately the better player.
