Ben Simmons on if he regrets passing up dunk in playoffs: No, because I wouldn't be here

Ben Simmons on if he wishes if he’d gone up to dunk that ball over Trae Young against the Hawks in the playoffs: No, because I wouldn’t be here. I don’t think you just say ‘yeah, I wish I went up and dunked the ball.’ Like that was the because that was the whole game. Like, come on. No, I think if I didn’t go through what I’ve gone through the last year or year and a half done, I wouldn’t be where I’m at now. And I think I needed to go through all that and have those experiences to be where I’m at.

Serious question for Ben Simmons: if your mental health was such an issue in Philly, who you blame for not supporting you, did you (or you manager or agency) hire a mental health professional with your $30M+ a yr salary? Like shooting coaches, they’re everywhere. – 1:54 PM

Ben Simmons on the Old Man & the Three pod on fans ripping his shooting: “…Like ok yeah cool. I’m going to practice & get better. It is what it is. And that’s just part of the game. If I was a guy that sucked and people didn’t care, people wouldn’t be mentioning my name.” #Nets12:20 PM

Ben Simmons on the Old Man and the Three podcast about fans ripping his shooting: “That is for sure frustrating. But it’s also one of my weaknesses, so what am I going to get mad at people for saying I’m not good at something?…” #Nets #NBA12:19 PM

More on this storyline

“When I was dealing with everything going on, I actually messaged [Shaquille O’Neal], and he put it out, and I was like, alright,” Ben Simmons said. “I DM’d him. I was like, ‘Why are you saying this if you don’t even know the story?’ ‘Cause he always wants to say, ‘Yo, we’re LSU brothers. You’re my brother.’ All this, that, if you’re my LSU brother, you would have reached out by now, and it’s been months since I been dealing with this. You ain’t reached out once and say, ‘Hey, you okay? What’s going on?’” -via YouTube / September 22, 2022
Ben Simmons: “The talent that we have, the type of players that we have we’re going to be able to run the floor. You know we got Nic Claxton who can run, who moves incredibly well. I mean, Kevin Durant, Patty Mills, Kyrie Irving, Joe Harris. We just got Royce O’Neale, another great 3-and-D guy. I’m missing people. This team right now is just a great fit for what I do and what I bring to the game….I feel like it’s Philadelphia on steroids in terms of what we had when you (JJ Redick), Marco Belinelli, Ersan Ilyasova were there. -via YouTube / September 22, 2022
