Danny Green continues to publicly criticize Ben Simmons’ shooting
Danny Green has not been shy about his opinions on Ben Simmons following the conclusion of the 2021 season. A few weeks ago, he spoke about Ben on his podcast, stating that Simmons needs to be pushed to develop his game and won’t do it on his own. And now yesterday, Danny Green spoke with NBC’s John Clark and had this to say about Ben.
“Naturally, he’s a passer, some guys are naturally facilitators, and that’s what he’s good at doing. But we need him to do both. We need him to have a happy medium. That’s part of growing up. That’s part of maturing”
Several 76ers have spoken about Ben this offseason, including Seth Curry this weekend. Danny Green has been in hot water recently for his comments about Philly fans, but almost everyone in the city will agree with this statement. The series against the Hawks was a boiling point for many 76ers fans, and Ben will need a jump shot if he wants to become the NBA player he should be.
Green is currently a free agent, and it’s unknown yet if he will be returning to Philadelphia or not his offseason. As for Ben, several trade rumors have circulated, including teams like the Cavaliers and Timberwolves. Recently Ben’s shooting coach and brother took to Twitter, liking tweets blaming others for Ben’s failures instead of himself.
