After Simmons reportedly said his partnership with Joel Embiid has run its course despite all of the success the two experienced together, the big fella shot back at Simmons after practice.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith reacted to Embiid’s comments, and he sided with the big fella on this one:
I’m not saying they’re casting any aspersions on him outside of Joel Embiid or whatever because they want him back, but the flip side to it is that there are people that are sitting back and going like this ‘The nerve of you. That’s what no one’s hearing from Ben Simmons. So Joel Embiid is like, ‘What the hell is going on here? I’m hearing about, you don’t want to play with me? What?’
