Is it feasible that Ben Simmons will return to the NBA?

It wasn't apparent if the Brooklyn Nets guard cared anymore, but he's been on fire this season.

Ben Simmons, the Brooklyn Nets' point guard, is in the early phases of regaining his career and getting it back on track. The last few years have been nothing short of chaotic and dramatic.

Most people wondered (sometimes publicly) if Simmons still wanted to play basketball and if his heart was in it. It's still early in the 2023-24 season, but Simmons appears to be having a good time and enjoying the game so far.

The average fan (or "casual") will look at Ben's stat line in the box score and focus on what he didn't do in terms of scoring. On Wednesday night, Simmons scored four points but was a driving factor in Brooklyn's 109-105 away triumph over Miami. His 11 rebounds, five assists, and one critical fourth-quarter block were crucial in the victory.

Ben's smile has returned, which is one of the most noticeable differences from the past two years. He seemed to like being a part of a group. Just before the start of the regular season, Simmons discovered how much his fans care about him (at least one) when he met a young man with a tattoo of Simmons' face on his chest. Despite his dubious judgment, Simmons appeared astonished and flattered, so he gifted the boy a shirt.

Simmons must be relieved to see fans still cheering after receiving so much criticism for how his career in Philadelphia ended. He'd been written off after sitting out in Philly, then being moved to the Nets and scarcely playing at first. Some thought Simmons should retire. Even though he was only 27 years old, he'd fallen so far that it was difficult to see him rising back up.

Simmons is averaging 7.3 points, 7.5 assists, and 10.3 rebounds per game in four games this season. That may not sound impressive to most, but Ben is similar to Draymond Green in that you can't focus on what he scored. With these types of players, forget about box scores in general.

You have to watch them play to see how they produce plays and set up settings that allow their teammates to succeed. Simmons and Green's levels of intensity and emotion aren't equal, but the influence they can have on a game without scoring a lot is. The fundamental difference is that one was drafted by a club that was investing in "the process," but the other was drafted by a team led by Stephen Curry that was ready to win championships.
