When the Brooklyn Nets pulled off the blockbuster trade to land Ben Simmons from the 76ers, fans were hopeful he'd help the team win the NBA Finals sooner than later. Him suiting up with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving seemed too good to be true.
Well, that has been the case for 2021-22, as Simmons is yet to place and he's already been ruled out for Game 4. Brooklyn is on the verge of elimination and the front office is not happy with Simmons.
This isn't a surprise. Simmons looked ready to play and he's been spotted at the games looking quite comfortable. Instead, he's backing out it seems. This is not good.
