NBA News: The “Phone in Pocket” Story That Ben Simmons Told, Which Made Things Worse Between Him and the Sixers

Disgruntled Ben Simmons is said to have brought an unusual item to practice with the Philadelphia Sixers before he was moved to the Brooklyn Nets. Ben Simmons possessed the potential to become one of the most accomplished defenders of this generation. He was great all the way up to the postseason of 2021.

Simmons was an excellent passer who had the capacity to maneuver through congested streets in order to identify a man who was free. Because he could defend the outside of the court and pass the ball in transition, he was a great addition to the team. To be completely fair to the Australian, up to the playoffs in the 2020–21 season, he was also a respectable scorer.

Because of how good he was at defense and how dominant he was in the paint, he became an important player for the Sixers. In his very first game with the team, Ben Simmons posted a mind-boggling average of 15.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 8.2 assists. People compared how well he did in his first season to how well LeBron James did in his first season, and the comparisons were good.

Simmons has had a successful six-year career, during which he has received the Rookie of the Year title, participated in three All-Star games, and won the stolen championship. In addition, he did not play in any games during the first two years of his career.

There is no denying the incredible skill that Ben possesses. In spite of this, his relationship with Philadelphia ended in a way that was bad for his reputation.
It was decided that Simmons would be traded away from Philadelphia during the offseason of the 2021–2022 season. The Sixers were forced to put up with Simmons’ tantrums since they did not have an adequate backup for their 6’11” guard.

The great athlete made the choice to sit out of every practice and game until he was moved to a different position. As a form of punishment, Philadelphia did not pay him any wages. After being absent from practice for an extended period of time in the month of October, Ben eventually caved and started showing up.

However, something he was carrying in his pocket caught the attention of the entire town. During the practice, Ben Simmons did not have his phone on him at any time. At the beginning of the season, when he participated in his first practice, everyone paid attention to him, but for the wrong reasons. Something out of the ordinary might be seen in Ben Simmons’ pockets in the practice videos.

The Object Found in Ben’s Pocket Was a Phone

Following much investigation, members of the NBA community came to the conclusion that the object found in Ben’s pocket was a phone. However, a person with inside knowledge of the NBA argued the contrary. The following was said by Shams Charania of The Athletic on a podcast hosted by Pat McAfee:

It wasn’t a phone that was discovered inside Ben Simmons’s jeans; rather, it was the practice jersey that he was supposed to be wearing. In addition to maintaining his stance that he would not wear it, Simmons made the decision to put his practice jersey away in his pocket in order to emphasize what Charania had said. During the entirety of the practice,

After that moment, things continued to deteriorate for both of the parties involved. After some time had passed, Simmons was kicked off the team for his refusal to take part in the team’s activities. At long last, an agreement was made between Philadelphia and Brooklyn, and Ben was traded for James Harden as part of the deal.
