Brian Shaw Guilty of ‘trying to please everybody’?

Basketball Insiders

The blame falls on coach Brian Shaw for the Nuggets’ ugly free fall. It’s his job to fix one of the NBA’s worst teams.

“If it works? Great. And if doesn’t? Then my head is the one that’s going to be on the guillotine. I understand that. I accept that,” said Shaw, feeling the heat a scant seven games into his second season on the Denver bench.

“My question is: Do I continue to try to necessarily please everybody else by playing the style that the Denver Nuggets have always played, which is getting up and down the floor, if it’s not conducive to what we really have on this roster right now?” Shaw said.

“If anything, I may be more guilty of trying to please everybody else rather than maybe going with my gut,” Shaw said.

Ben Simmons on NBA Debut: ‘It felt like I was playing 2K’

Ben Simmons finally made his long-awaited NBA regular-season debut against the Wizards in Washington on Wednesday night. And after his extended wait to wear the Philadelphia 76ers jersey in a meaningful game, he said he felt initially like he was in a video game.

“It felt like I was playing 2K, honestly,” Simmons said postgame.

“Just looking at Joel Embiid out there with the lights on his jersey. I was like, ‘man, I’m actually here.'”

Simmons was drafted with the first overall pick by the Sixers in the 2016 draft, but he missed the entire 2016-17 season while recovering from foot surgery to repair a Jones fracture. He suffered the injury on Sept. 30, 2016, less than a month before the start of the regular season. The Australian was originally expected to miss three months, but was eventually ruled out for the entire season.
