Philadelphia’s great sports soap opera starring 76 sentinels Ben Simmons has been broadcast daily on social media and news sites for months now.
One fan seemed to want more access to web traffic when he took to the streets of Center City in downtown Philadelphia on Wednesday to voice his feelings about Simmons.
Walking down JFK Avenue near 30th Street Station, fans hold a white billboard with thick black lettering that reads “F*** Ben Simmons.”
An NBC10 producer asked him to speak, but he declined. When asked why he was so mad at Simmons, the man simply said: “Google him!”
Simmons, who has been sidelined the entire 2021-2022 NBA season so far, still on the block of commerce before the 10th of February trading deadline. If he is cannot trade ahead of timehe could eventually return to the team or sit out the whole season until a commercial partner arrives next year.
Simmons, 25, still has three years left on his contract with the 76ers after this season. The remaining contract is worth 114 million USD.
