The best Ben Simmons grilled after the latest round of drama
After Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed that Ben Simmons did not plan to report to the 76ers training camp, NBA Twitter lost his mind to Simmons’s official withdrawal from the team.
Philadelphia paid Simmons $177 million in five years, but he didn’t plan to play for the team anymore.
Here is the best response from Twittersphere:
Whenever Ben Simmons returns to Philadelphia, he will be booed so strongly that the sound barrier will burst and produce a sonic boom, which will fold the universe onto itself and let us get a sweet release from this hell we damn.

Ben Simmons frustrated the 76ers’ hopes of winning by refusing to shoot, and now refusing to show up has reduced his trade value. He has some reasonable complaints about being thrown under the bus after the failure, but Philadelphia will not forgive him for evading responsibility for his failure.

In the history of Philadelphia sports, there has never been an athlete softer and mentally retarded than Ben Simmons. After wasting a few years, stole money, never improved, and shrank in the playoffs, and his contract was 147 million dollars left.

Don’t trade Ben Simmons. Let him start 4 full basketball seasons and give full play to his role every day when he is away.

Ben Simmons was defeated by Kevin Huult and Danilo Gallinari in the seventh game, and he behaved like James Harden.

All things considered, Ben Simmons is probably the coolest professional athlete in my life.
