NBA Twitter can’t keep calm as Ben Simmons announces an upcoming collaboration with Italian automobile giant Ferrari.
It’s been over a year since we saw Ben Simmons suit up for an NBA game. The former ROTY has not been looked at the same way since his debacle in the 2021 playoffs. The Simmons saga in Philadelphia had an ugly ending with the point guard and the front office hitting the deadlock.
Post his horrific performance in the semi-finals against the Hawks, coupled with Doc Rivers and Joel Embiid questioning his will to play, Simmons was sure about never donning the Sixers uniform again. The three-time All-Star didn’t budge a stance in his rift against the front office, finally having his way.
In a blockbuster trade, the Sixers and Nets cracked a deal sending Simmons to Brooklyn in exchange for James Harden. Many reports suggested that Simmons would be returning come playoff time, but a herniated disc would push his Nets debut even further.
