Ben Simmons saga: Doc Rivers got ‘laugh’ at claim he didn’t support All-Star, calls respect a ‘two-way street’

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

On Tuesday, ESPN published a wide-ranging report from Ramona Shelburne detailing the many layers of the standoff between Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers.

Apparently Simmons felt, and continues to feel, that Rivers was the one who needed to go to lengths to repair the relationship after he had the audacity to question whether Simmons could be the point guard of a championship team.

On Tuesday, Rivers addressed the ESPN report and the claims made within with regard to his support, or supposed lack thereof, of Simmons, essentially firing back in what I would call pretty warranted self defense. Nobody ever denied all those things, but Rivers was looking for any way – even if it made him look almost foolish in the process – to dismiss any and all criticism being levied against Simmons.
