LSU star forward Ben Simmons has a boatload of talent and is easily one of the best players in the nation right now, but he has flaws in his game like any other star as hip-hop sensation Lil Wayne pointed out on Twitter.
Specifically, Lil Wayne said what every one of Simmons’ critics has said: he must be more aggressive.
Ben Simmons a beast but he gotta start being more assertive…but Buddy Hield is da absolute truth.

Lil Wayne isn’t far off. Simmons had 14 points, nine rebounds, five assists and two steals in the Tigers’ 77-75 loss to No. 1 Oklahoma yesterday, but did not score once in the final 10 minutes and fouled out of the game. Talented though Simmons is, his offense consists of two scoring methods: dunking and right-handed layups. For someone 6-foot-10, 225 pounds, he should be developing an interior game as well as a jump shot if he wants to have a successful NBA career.
LSU next takes on Auburn on Tuesday, so hopefully Simmons diversifies his approach over the rest of the season.
