Ben Simmons accused by comedian, actor, and former friend Michael Blackson of shooting the wrong shot completely.
Come on man. We all wanted Ben Simmons to take a damn shot, but not this kind.
All season long, coaches, experts, and fans from around the NBA have urged the player to be more aggressive on the court. To get his jump shot, or maybe even broaden his bag, just anything at all, as long as he concentrated on his craft.
Of course, as we know now, the player has started to become a fan of throwing his talent out of the window and making every person in Philadelphia want to hate him. And frankly, it seems he has gone one step further in that direction.
Philly is the city of Brotherly love as they say. So, you would expect that a high-profile player from there would follow some of the values from there, and hopefully, even uphold the bro code. But nope.
Recently, Michael Blackson revealed the shameful behavior of the player once hailed as a star. But if what is said by the actor and comedian here is true, the only thing fans will want to really label him as is a scumbag.
Let’s get into it.

Why take free throws, if you can take contested shots right?
Jokes and metaphors aside though, this whole situation is so much worse than how it looks at first. Listen to Blackson himself explain the whole thing in the tweet below.

And here is the tweet the comedian was talking about.
Instead of trying to shoot his shot at his friend’s women in their dms he should be trying to shoot free throws, now he shot himself out of Philly.

Of course, the star is now in a happy relationship with Maya Jama. However, this is still such a terrible thing to do, and frankly, if this is proven to be completely true, the player should be shamed for it.
Even without that though, we really hope Ben Simmons can be a better person from this. And not just that, but actually focus more on the court as well.
He does that, and we could still see the player take a leap next season.
