Ben Simmons gave a befitting reply to his haters yesterday, both with his game and with his statements in the post-game presser.
The Philadelphia 76ers are off to a great start this season behind the leadership of center Joel Embiid. The Sixers are having an impressive start with 11 wins and 5 losses, placing them on the topmost position of the Eastern Conference.
Although, Philadelphia 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons hasn’t been at his best this season. He has been averaging mediocre numbers for a 2-time All-Star, being the second option on the team. Simmons is averaging 12.4 points, 8.7 rebounds, 8.2 assists along with 1.6 steals per game he’s played this season.
Luckily, despite Ben Simmons average performance, the team has been playing good. Embiid has been putting up MVP level numbers averaging 27.3 points, 11.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists this season.
“I don’t give a f**k honestly”: Ben Simmons on the hate he is receiving on social media
Ben Simmons needs to focus on his game and tune out the hate he’s been receiving from the outside. The 76ers are now 8-0 when the team has their projected starting lineup on the floor. Simmons needs to step up his game over the course of the season in order to make a championship run.
Simmons has been receiving a lot of hate from people on social media. Simmons is being pretty vocal about how he feels about the hate he’s receiving. When asked about the defamation he has been getting on social media, Simmons said that he simply didn’t ‘give a f*** honestly’.

Simmons will be looking to build upon his dominant 4th quarter performance from yesterday. The Sixers are sitting pretty atop the Eastern Conference standings with a nice little cushion right now. Both Simmons and Tobias Harris have the opportunity to play themselves into form.
