More details are making their way out from Philadelphia and it's only going to anger 76ers fans. With news breaking that Ben Simmons has been suspended for a game, we now know why.
Per Shams Charania, Simmons was asked not once, but twice by Doc Rivers to go in for a defensive drill. He declined both times, leading to Rivers telling him to go home. Wow.
What would you expect Rivers to do here? Simmons is acting like a little kid right now and it's having a negative impact on the team chemistry. If Simmons doesn't change his attitude, another suspension could be coming soon too.
