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

More on this storyline

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
Ben Simmons: “It’s exciting knowing I’m going to play with those guys, knowing their games and I won’t have to f***ing guard Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant,” he said, adding “You don’t guard Kevin. Nobody guards Kevin. Those guys are so incredibly talented. Their focus is incredible. Just seeing him work, but yeah, no one’s guarding Kevin or Ky.” -via YouTube / September 22, 2022
