Media day for the Sixers is next Monday, but head coach Doc Rivers got ahead of the imminent Ben Simmons questions with an appearance on ESPN’s First Take Wednesday.
Rivers answered questions from host Stephen A. Smith regarding Simmons’ trade demand and Rivers’ comments after Game 7.
There is a LOT to unpack here.
Smith asks Rivers about his answer to a question regarding Simmons’ viability as a point guard on a championship team posed by The Inquirer’s David Murphy.
As someone who covered every game in some capacity and was on just about every single one of Rivers’ Zoom calls last season, I have no complaints with the way I was treated by Rivers and he generally gave me good answers.
