Doc Rivers Had Final ‘Long Talk’ With Ben Simmons Before Parting Ways

Fan Nation


Article Summary:

Doc Rivers’ season full of praising Ben Simmons didn’t end the way anybody expected. After defending the three-time All-Star countless times as questions loomed about Simmons’ lack of shooting and even going as far as referring to Simmons as Philadelphia’s “Treasure,” everything Rivers said was wiped out by a single comment following the Sixers’ 2021 playoff series loss to the Atlanta Hawks.

“I don’t know the answer to that question right now,” said Rivers when asked if Ben Simmons could be a point guard on a championship-winning basketball team. Not only did Simmons request a trade, but he threatened to hold out from the team for the whole 2021-2022 season if he didn’t get his wish.
