Ben Simmons gets booed by the Philadelphia 76ers’ home crowd

For the fans of Philadelphia, to say Ben Simmons was a disappointment is an understatement. In 2012, the Philadelphia 76ers tore their roster apart. A competitive playoff team, the Sixers hadn’t had any playoff success since 2001. The Sixers controversially decided to tank their team. This era was called “Trust The Process.” While the Sixers lost games, they landed high draft picks.

Ben Simmons was the top pick of the 2016 NBA Draft. At the time, Ben Simmons was hailed as the next LeBron James. During this time, the Sixers were struggling, and Ben Simmons was the savior. In his first game, Ben Simmons suffered a season ending injury. In 2017, Ben Simmons returned, winning Rookie of the Year. Together, he and Joel Embiid led the Sixers to a 52-30 record and the second round of the playoffs.

Forming a duo with Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons led Philly to their first 50-win season since Allen Iverson played on the team. In 2019, Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid led the Sixers to consecutive 50 win seasons for the first time since the 1980s. The only problem was Ben Simmons not shooting three pointers. It soon became clear Joel Embiid was the franchise player. All problems came to a head, during the Atlanta series, which led to Simmons’ refusal to play, and trade. Last night, Ben Simmons returned to Philly, where the crowd booed him.
