Fat Joe went on his big big show via Instagram Live to name 76ers’ Ben Simmons the biggest loser who hasn’t played a single game this season.
Twenty-five-year-old 76er, Ben Simmons, Ben Simmons has not played a single minute for the Philadelphia 76ers in 2021/22. As stated by theathletic.com, Simmons has not played this season, citing not being mentally ready to compete after spending the offseason hoping to be traded. Simmons’ agent, Rich Paul, told The Athletic back in November that fines and negative publicity are designed to force Simmons to play and are damaging his mental health.
Almost immediately after last season ended, Simmons approached the front office and demanded a trade. He then bailed to California and refused to speak with any members of the 76ers franchise for months in hopes that a trade would be finalized.
Rumors are now circulated within the NBA that Philly intends to make their move on Ben Simmons right at the February trade deadline. The question remains what can Philly get back in return for the troubled player. Even with another team taking a chance on Simmons, they most certainly have the upper hand when it comes to any deal.
In related news, Fat Joe recently went on Instagram Live where he named Ben Simmons the biggest loser. “The biggest loser in the universe is Ben Simmons. What the f–k is he doing,” Fat Joe asked his 4.6 million followers. “What he said, he can’t come back and play? Ben Simmons, biggest jerk. He done lost too much money or whatever the case may be.”
