After Doc Rivers sounded critical of Ben Simmons following the Game 7 loss to the Hawks last year, he actually publicly lobbied for Simmons to return, saying he feels he can win a championship with Simmons as his point guard.
But it appears that some bad blood has boiled over. Rivers reportedly swore at Simmons about what was going to be expected of him when he finally arrived to the team. And now, they’re getting into it at practice.
It’s only been two days that Ben Simmons has been with Doc Rivers and the Sixers. You’d have to think this all gets worse before it’s said and done.
