The star player of the Philadelphia 76ers, Ben simmons, will not report to the team’s training sessions and intends not to play a game with them again, he reported on Tuesday. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
This is a further sign that the Australian is ready to wage merciless war on the organization he has played for his entire career. Simmons’s desire to leave the team is so great that several reports have indicated that he is willing to be fined financially and even suspended for not reporting to training that will begin next week.
“Stop using my name to drive the stories. I love and hate drama. I love playing with Ben. The stats don’t lie. He’s an amazing player and we all fail to get the job done. I hope everyone is back because we know we are good enough to win, “he said. Joel embiid A couple of weeks ago looking to calm things down, but clearly his attempt was unsuccessful.
After the unexpected elimination before the Atlanta Hawks In the second round of the playoffs, Simmons was the focus of multiple negative comments from the press, fans and his own teammates, something that the 26-year-old does not want to forgive.
This has been Ben Simmons’ problem in his NBA career, as he prefers to focus on others and not on his own shortcomings. He is a player who has all the conditions but refuses to work on his outside shot, which has slowed his impact on the league. After his terrible performance against the Hawks, the least he could do was look in the mirror and accept that he let the entire city down.
I still have nightmares when I remember the infamous play in which he decided to pass the ball to Matisse Thybulle instead of ending the action with a dunk under the basket. That will be the moment all 76ers fans will remember as they define Simmons’ passage through the team.
From the moment he was selected as first in the 2016 draft from the University of LSU, the entire city embraced him and gave him unconditional support despite his inexplicable refusal to shoot 3-pointers. People in Philadelphia have a reputation for being tough on their athletes, but they can ask Allen Iverson and Joel Embiid what it’s like to be loved when you do things with effort and dedication on the team.
The fact that Ben Simmons has decided to give up and not try to improve for better results with the 76ers will make him an absolute enemy to the people.
When you return to the Wells Fargo Center wearing another team’s jersey prepare yourself for complete hell.
