    I respect Kevin for going against the grain, calling out the media's bullshit (something All the Smoke does really well in general) and sticking up for a friend... all that being said...Ben deserves criticism. he is a star and a great player, but Dan marino was a star and a great player in the NFL. He will always be remembered as a guy who couldn't deliver in the big moments. If Ben doesn't want to be remembered in a similar way, he needs to make changes. \ Just think about the way he passed up that wide open layup. Think really carefully...would someone who is a NBA champion do that?

    Kevin isn’t wrong , but the problem with Ben is during the playoffs under pressure, he does not want to go to the free throw line. I think people are going to make their peace with Ben Simmons not being a shooter or developing a jump shot , but to throw a pass when u have a open scoring opportunity, that shows fear or worse…..

    ben has something he's a fucking 6'10 point. Who the hell can guard that? Guards are too small and the centers are too slow. But if the 76ers want to win they need to get a true shooting guard. If I'm being honest Bradley biel would be a killer

      The problem is Ben is mentally too weak to use his 6'10" frame. Doesn't help he's also too scared to shoot free throws. All that talent goes to waste in the playoffs, such a shame

      It’s a fact though. Ben Simmons is better than most people in the league and has made an all nba team, all defensive team, and an all star team ever since his second year in the league so you can’t say that the man isn’t a star. Now I could see where you are coming from if Kevin said that Ben is a superstar but that’s not the case in this situation

    This has nothing to do with Philly fans, and everything to do with Ben Simmons being afraid to face his own failures. He needs to be surrounded by Yes Men and Yes Women who do nothing but tell him what a treasure he is. Ben Simmons runs and hides from any criticism. He hides from his teammates. He hides from the organization. He hides from the press. He hides from the fans. He hides from everyone. He can't talk for himself. He has to send others out to do is talking. He can't even figure out the reason why he won't report. First he was insulted by Doc Rivers. Then he was insulted by Joel Embiid. Then it was Daryl Morey thinking of trading him for James Harden. Then it was the Philly press. Then it was the Philly fans. Then it was because he's just not a good fit next to Embiid. Then it was because it was too much to ask for him to come into the NBA and start on a winning team. He needed to go somewhere where there would be lower expectations. Just one excuse after another for his own deficiencies. Meanwhile, the real problem is he just needs to develop a 15-ft shot. If he could do that, and actually take it in games, he has the potential to be an NBA MVP. He's already the only basketball player on the planet Earth who can guard every other basketball player on the planet Earth. Fix that one hole in his game, and he's a surefire Hall of Famer!! Problem is, he may never reach his full potential because he's mentally weak.

    Kevin is on point; Philly is overreacting a bit. Dude can flat out hoop, Ben does need to just shoot the ball even if it misses, start from mid range and work his way back to 3pt range. It’s also on the coaching staff to develop that confidence and run sets for those shots.

      The Sixers won a lot of games with Simmons playing the way he plays. Simmons is very skilled ball-handler and facilitator, that can get past his defender more not and can get to the rim at will if he needs to score. Also, when you have MVP caliber and All-Star caliber scorers in Embiid and Harris, the Sixers don’t need Simmons to do as much offensively. More than anything, Simmons just need to be a better free throw shooter.

    Kevin shut tf up, you only saying this because you know him. Your OWN CITY held him accountable. A guy who could score 40 when he wants barely scores in the playoffs, passes up a open dunk, shoots worse than SHAQ!!. You upset cuz your coach, fans, media held you accountable. Your teammates backed you up. Joel took responsibility when it happened. You get paid hundreds of millions of dollars and you play worse than Draymond green. I literally would rather have draymond at this point. That defense didn't matter after the hawks series. He barely scored to the point deep bench players would score more. It's ok if you don't wanna shoot threes but bro you was putting up less than 5 points. Anytime a team puts their best player on the bench in late games is a problem. Joel had this man's back and defended him only until recently and now everyone knows what Jimmy butler was talking about. I don't like to call players soft but Ben is the softest player I've ever seen. Bro was shook just to dunk or lay a ball up

    That was very nice to of Kev to a say and I understand what he's saying in essence. However, I know based on his transparency with his own life, he knows he couldn't go out like Ben. He'd do all he could to at least try first and then know if he couldn't do it, it would not be because he didn't give his all and try everything. Ben gotta get out of his own head when it comes to shooting. Kobe said it best in an interview..."you're not that important in the grand scheme of things, so get over yourself."
