Another August day, another Ben Simmons highlight video! But DON’T GO ANYWHERE! Because this has nothing to do with falling into the trap that we have fallen into for five seasons now. It has to do with someone else in the video. Check out the video below and take a look at the LAST clip

Ben Simmons does a no look pass to the player directly behind him for a wide open shot. And that player is Tyrese Maxey. “BuT BeN SiMmOnS IsNt AnSwErInG ThE SiXeRs CaLlS” And maybe Ben Simmons isnt, but the narrative that was being painted was Ben Simmons hasnt talked to anyone with the Sixers organization and we find out thats a lie.

Its worth mentioning Tyrese Maxey is a Klutch sports client, as is Ben Simmons. So it appears this may have been a Klutch sports organized workout. But it shows that Ben Simmons has not cut off the entire Sixers organization. It was a ridiculous narrative from the start. And if youre a Ben Simmons fan and you want to see him back in a Sixers uniform then its a good sign that hes training with a teammate in the offseason.

Read into all of this what you want.
