Photo by Juan Ocampo/NBAE via The HOF center didn’t hold back. The Ben Simmons situation began last summer and is still ongoing with the NBA trade deadline less than two weeks away. With Simmons declining to suit up in a Sixers uniform this season, Philadelphia fans have grown increasingly frustrated with and disappointed in the former first overall pick (to put it mildly). However, those feelings apparently even extend to individuals beyond the greater Delaware Valley who don’t have an emotional investment in the team. During last night’s TNT studio show,...

At this point in NBA trade season, the rumors are flying faster than a Furkan Korkmaz catch-and-shoot triple. The biggest story possible is the one that keeps arising. The mere idea that the Sixers would hold Ben Simmons through the trade deadline alone would be pretty earth-shattering, even if few of us in these parts would be shocked.
