Zach LaVine, James Harden React to Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons’ All-Star Game Absence

Fan Nation


Article Summary:

Philadelphia 76ers stars Ben Simmons, and Joel Embiid had every intention of playing in the 2021 NBA All-Star game. “It’s a great feeling to be part of the best players in the world. I’m just looking to go out there, stay safe, and have fun playing the best game in basketball.”

Meanwhile, Simmons never hesitated to commit to playing in the big game.

“From what I’ve heard, they did everything right. I think they had close contact with their barber, and the barber was getting tested daily. It’s not like they were trying to hide it or they were doing something wrong. They did everything right, and they still [were]in the wrong place at the wrong time. Extremely unfortunate and sad, but I think, with the time that we live in right now, you can’t be too safe.”

Before the All-Star game was set this season, the NBA initially planned just to announce the players who have earned the honors and move on without playing a game. After some planning, the NBA decided they could put together a small event in Atlanta, which many notable players weren’t exactly thrilled about.
