Ben Simmons practicing at St. Joes while being fined for not joining the Sixers on the road
Over the past few days, we have seen pictures surface of Ben Simmons on St. Joe’s campus. Apparently he’s been using their practice facilities while the team he is supposed to be playing for is currently on the road and playing the Utah Jazz tonight.
Over the past week, we learned that Ben Simmons is again, being fined by the 76ers organization for not showing up to games, practices, and team meetings.
Rich Paul came out and said that Ben Simmons mental health was “getting worse” due to the fines that the 76ers were giving him for not being with the team. Paul even went as far as saying that the 76ers are attempting to force Ben Simmons back to the team. Everything that Rich Paul says is of course, bullshit. Even the latest report from Shams reeked of Klutch Sports. It’s all just tiring at this point.
I hate to do this but Howard Eskins tweeted out that not only is Ben Simmons practicing at St. Joes, but he’s also practicing with St. Joes basketball players. Since it’s from Howard Eskins, proceed with caution. However, if that turns out to be true then Howard actually asks a good question.
Why can Ben Simmons practice with college players but not his NBA team?
I’ll let you answer that. It’s annoying at this point. Check out these Odds Boosts for tonight’s NBA action via Parx Sportsbook.
[…] I have been pretty clear about my dislike for a certain radio station here in Philadelphia. Yes, it’s WIP Sports Talk Radio. Great guess. However, sometimes there’s a clip that gets dropped that’s pretty funny. No thanks to the actual WIP Morning Show, but rather a caller to the show. How anyone would listen and/or call in to speak with Angelo Cataldi and the rest of the WIP Morning Show is beyond me, but apparently, this guy got in a car accident and then still hung on the phone so he had his chance to share his dislike of Ben Simmons.

[…] Simmons missed the 76ers six game road trip and has been getting fined by the 76ers for missing team meetings, practices, and games as he continues to say that he is not mentally ready to return to the team. While the Sixers were on the road, Simmons was practicing at St. Josephs University. […]
