It’s reported that Kevin Durant and other players at the Brooklyn Nets are getting tired of Ben Simmons. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski claims that Kevin Durant and other Nets players have become frustrated with Ben Simmons, and I think they want him out.
According to Brobible;
There isn’t much going right for the Brooklyn Nets right now. Even with Kevin Durant averaging 32 points per game, the team has struggled to win games.
The team currently has a 3-6 record and their season doesn’t look likely to get better any time soon as they deal with Kyrie Irving’s off-court issues.
It’s a continuation of the team’s struggles at the end of last season, where they weren’t particularly competitive as the Boston Celtics swept them out of the playoffs.
At the time, there were some fans holding out hope that help was on the way for the franchise. That help was supposed to be Ben Simmons, who didn’t appear in an NBA game last season. Unfortunately, he hasn’t changed anything for the Nets.
Despite playing plenty of minutes, Ben Simmons has yet to score 10 points in a game and he continues to look afraid to shoot the ball. He is also still badly struggling at the free throw line.
Meanwhile, he hasn’t had the impact the Nets were hoping for on the defensive end of the floor as the team still has not been particularly good on defense this season. To make matters worse, he hasn’t been available for the team’s last 3 games.
Now it appears that playing with Simmons is starting to take its toll on the Nets. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Kevin Durant and other Nets players have become frustrated with Ben Simmons.
It is clear that, for whatever reason, Simmons doesn’t have the desire to play ball at a high level anymore. He still wants to get paid like a superstar but wants to play like an anonymous bench player.
