ATLANTA, GEORGIA - JUNE 18: Ben Simmons #25 of the Philadelphia 76ers drives between John Collins #20 and Clint Capela #15 of the Atlanta Hawks during the first half of game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals at State Farm Arena on June 18, 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia.

While Ben Simmons may be 3000 miles away in his Los Angeles compound just “working on his game” and totally not living on social media with notifications set for whenever his name pops up on the internet, he is still getting dunked on back here in the Delaware Valley. And because he totally isnt living on social media he will not see Philadelphia native Eugene Bozzi posterize the 3 time All-Star.

Last week Bozzi, who is living in Florida, came across an alligator in his lawn. Down in Florida its as common as seeing a pot hole in Philly. Bozzi however thought fast, grabbed a trash can, and seemingly scooped the gator into the trash can and disposed of it safely. While you might not be impressed by this, many men have tried a similar feet and the gator won

The video went viral and Bozzi is now doing the interview circuit, including an interview with CBS3. And unlike Ben Simmons, when Bozzi saw the lane open up he ran and JAMMED it.

“I just jumped into action and said ‘you know what, im not gonna be Ben Simmons! Im gonna catch me this basket.””

This is eerily similar to the 2019 man who, upon rescuing children from a burning building chose to not take the praise but instead take shots at then Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor. It spurned the “Unlike Agholor” drop that lives on forever. This shows that when Philly sports fan are given their 15 seconds of fame they use it to get their voice heard on the state of sports in this beautiful city.
