Last week, former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. While speaking with the media, O’Neal was asked by CSN Philly about the 2016 rookie class and if any players stood out as future stars.
“I don’t know all of them, but I know my guy’s going to be pretty good, Ben Simmons,” O’Neal told CSN Philly, referring to the Philadelphia 76ers rookie who was picked No. 1 overall. “He’s a LeBron-type player,” O’Neal said Simmons, a 20-year-old forward. “What I mean by that, LeBron does a nice job of making everybody else around him better — passing the ball, doing the small things — and Ben is that type of player.”
