Ben Simmons has finally responded to Ric Bucher’s report about him.
On Monday, FS1’s Rich Bucher claims Simmons left the team’s group chat when asked to play during game 4.
“They’re having a team chat before Game 4, thinking he’s going to play against the Boston Celtics,” NBA insider Ric Bucher said during a recent television appearance. “From what I’m told, Ben just left the chat. They asked him, ‘Are you going to play?’ Ben left the chat. Like he didn’t even answer the question, just left the chat. And K.D. (Kevin Durant) is like, ‘This is what I signed up for? This is who I’m playing with?’”
Simmons took to Twitter on Tuesday and basically called Bucher’s report fake news.
