Ben Simmons is acting like a petulant teenager, earning him a suspension and $1.4M fine, and Kyrie Irving refuses to get vaccinated. With guys like Kawhi Leonard and Zion Williamson out due to injury, the NBA is losing its star power to start this season on Doug Gottlieb thinks it is a bad look for the Association. The NBA has thrived on drama in the past but this is a different animal altogether and they need to get a handle on their personnel before things go from bad to worse.
Doug Gottlieb: “It’s the league of drama and while it works for them at times, I don’t think it’s working for them now, I just don’t. I love the NBA...but Ben Simmons’ actions today combined with Kyrie Irving...yikes!”
