At a point, Simmons received comparisons to another face of the Los Angeles Lakers, NBA legend Magic Johnson.
Since Simmons isn’t the prototypical size of an NBA point guard, many believed he could become another Magic Johnson-type of player.
Being somebody that’s had an interest in working with Simmons before, Johnson has been paying attention to the Sixers’ starting point guard over time. “The locker room won’t recover from it.”
While Johnson went back for a moment and made it clear he believes the Sixers lost the second-round series to the Hawks as a team when they dropped Game 5, he still thinks Simmons’ time with the Sixers will come to an end sooner than later.
