Joel Embiid Speaks on Supposedly Escalating Rift With Ben Simmons
The Ben Simmons and Philadelphia Sixers debacle seems to be far from over. Back in August, HYPEBEAST reported that Simmons has reportedly cut off all communication with the team. Earlier this week, sources have claimed that the rift between Simmons and Joel Embiid has continued to escalate.
Hours after the reports were made, The Sixers’ big man took to Twitter to refute the claim, “Sources “Trust me bro”!! Stop using my name to push people’s agendas. I love and hate drama. I love playing with Ben. Stats don’t lie. He’s an amazing player and we all didn’t get the job done. It’s on me personally. I hope everyone is back cuz we know we’re good enough to win.”
Embiid continued on a long Twitter rant where he called out Philly fans for booing him in the past and that they should be better, “From my own experience, y’all have no idea how much this media makes up stuff for followers and shame on you for believing them.” It appears that the particular moment, which occurred two years ago seems to have made an imprint on Embiid’s mind, as he airs out his grievances telling Philly fans, “y’all also gotta be better.”
