Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons has had himself a tough offseason where the 25-year old has undergone some serious criticism for his poor playoff performance and the team has been taking trade calls on him all summer.
Redick, who played two seasons with Simmons, added this about his former teammate:
I’m friends with Ben and I had him as a teammate and loved him as a teammate, he probably could do more to help himself. That’s not to say he’s blameless in any of this, but we haven’t gotten to the point where like Ben is a great player, here’s what he’s great at, let’s just appreciate that. Again, Ben’s not blameless, but I don’t think that’s been fair to Ben.
No matter how this situation ends, there is little doubt about Simmons’ talent.
