As the Sixers dropped Game 7 at home in the second round against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night, many pinned the blame of the loss on the three-time All-Star.
Once again, Simmons’ offensive shortcomings overshadowed any positives he brought to the table. Seeing as though Simmons is the Sixers’ starting point guard, the criticism surrounding his lack of scoring was warranted on Sunday night as his lack of contributions played into the key loss. In seven games against the Hawks, Simmons averaged less than 10 points per game and attempted less than seven shots as he only attempted more than nine field goals in two of seven games.
As the Nationals formed a comeback against the Phillies, courtesy of a three-run home run on Wednesday, the Nationals’ social media team decided to take shots not only at the Phillies but at Ben Simmons as well.
