Report: Ben Simmons still upset that Joel Embiid, Sixers blamed him for loss

USA Today


Article Summary:

ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne reports the notion that Joel Embiid and Doc Rivers blamed him for the second-round playoff series loss to the Atlanta Hawks following that series’ Game 7 continues to occupy Simmons’ mind.

Shelburne reports:

According to sources close to Simmons, he’s upset that Embiid seemed to blame him for last season’s playoff loss, when Simmons did not blame Embiid for Embiid’s poor showing in the playoffs against the Toronto Raptors in 2019. Simmons feels Rivers and the Sixers could’ve done more, like show up at a well-known gym in the San Fernando Valley where he was training. Simmons would be the best player the Sixers would send in any theoretical trade.
