Oh my god, this is gonna be awesome. We’re like a week away from the start of the NBA season and Ben Simmons is somehow still a Philadelphia 76er, and it’s even looking like he might suit up this season. Look what Woj said.
Keep in mind, this is a guy who is coming off one of the worst playoff performances we’ve ever seen, publicly demanded a trade, and openly feuds with the team’s star player Joel Embiid. So, the prospect of him just trying to put that all behind him and play is absolutely hilarious.
Plus, this is all happening in Philadelphia! You know a city that’s usually pretty accepting of shenanigans out of their athletes. They’ll welcome back Simmons with open arms. Ha! They are going to DESTROY this guy. He’s gonna need to be police escorted throughout his home city just to prevent some trashbag with bacne and wifebeater from caving his face in with a baseball bat. They DESPISE this guy.
As if I wasn’t already excited for the NBA season, Ben Simmons playing for the Sixers is far more interesting than him going to like Orlando or some shit. This is the professional sports equivalent of when your girlfriend cheats on you, but you still have to live in an apartment with her for the next 6 months. I wouldn’t be surprised if him and Embiid did their best Wilder/Fury impression during the first quarter of the first game.
