Ben Maller: “Has there ever been a more phony star than Ben Simmons?? Late in games Ben Simmons is a liability. He can’t play in crunch time and he plays like he’s a gutless puke in those crucial moments at the end of games. The Sixers tried to play him and how did that work out? The typical Ben Simmons package of equal parts anxiety, fear, panic, and confusion… He just did the impossible and had a worse shooting postseason from the charity stripe than Shaquille O’Neal.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Ben Maller uncork on embattled Sixers guard Ben Simmons after one of the worst playoff performances from a healthy All-Star player in league history, as the former no. 1 overall pick averaged just 9.9 points in seven games vs. the Hawks, shot 15 of 45 from the free-throw line, and didn’t attempt a single shot in the fourth quarter in games 4-7.
Check out the video above as Maller anoints Simmons one of the phoniest ‘stars’ in NBA history.
