What Ben Simmons did while he was dealing with back issues has been revealed and according to the rumors, he was playing 23 hours straight of video games.
According to Side Action;
Simmons allegedly spent 23 hours straight playing Call of Duty. A Tweet from user Broad Street Buddies has an attached screenshot of Simmons’ supposed PlayStation Network account that shows the basketball player was playing Call of Duty and that he’d been doing so for 23 hours and 3 minutes…
It’s fairly normal that Simmons is playing video games while he’s off with an injury, but for 23 hours straight when he’s getting paid to not play due to his “back issue”
Ben Simmons is not worth the headache.
This is what Ben Simmon’s rough path has been;
First, he asked for a trade from the Philadelphia 76ers despite having four years left on his contract. Then because he was seemingly frustrated at not getting traded, Simmons missed the 76ers’ training camp and pre-games, and eventually, stopped playing altogether due to not being “prepared mentally.”
Finally he was traded to the Nets, where most assumed we’d see him back on the court.
But now we know that never happened. Even Reggie Miller questioned Ben’s motivation after he missed Game 4.
Here is the latest on how his back injury is more mental than physical.
It is safe to say there is really nothing wrong with Ben Simmons physically.
The question begs do you believe there is something wrong with him mentally. A back issue is really easy to fake. It isn’t like an ankle sprain. You can just wake up one day and say your back is hurt, and there is no real way to prove that it doesn’t hurt.
It is an easy excuse for Ben Simmons to use whenever he doesn’t want to play. I think most people would agree if the Nets had won Game 3, Simmons would have been on the floor for Game 4. When the Nets lost that game, and the prospect of Simmons becoming a meme again if they got swept (which eventually is what happened) made him realize he wanted no parts of a Game 4.
