Curious what people think... If health isn't a question, I'd probably go Embiid, Porzingis, Towns, Simmons.

But factoring in health, I'd probably put Towns as #1.

Assuming all healthy and Simmons learns to shoot. I'll take any of them

Simmons. He just needs a shot. He has everything else.

thats kind of a big deal. very rare for someone to become a good shooter after entering the league sucking at it. most cases, like lbj, improve on paper only. that is, they choose to only take easy shots and open shots, and have their percentage stay high. but they still suck for any kind of contested shots. the idea that its "just shooting" is crazy. literally the hardest thing in the game. you can get more rebounds and assists by trying harder, but for shooting, you need to really do some things that even most nba players wont do.

this warrior team is not "just" better at shooting. they are so good at shooting, they can afford good shooters to play harder on defense or other things. we, on the other hand, suck at shooting, even with lebron. and we cant afford any shooters to do other things. we'll be losing playoff games by bricking free throws and clanking open threes with the current squad.

Sounds like our point guard situation.

I'll be the outlier guy here.

I said Towns because 1) He's actually healthy. 2) He's the best shooter there. 3) Thibs holds him back. 4) He's actually played great defense before, but he's tired of Thibs so it didn't show last year.
