(00:00-14:18) On today’s Mike Missanelli Show, Mike reacts to the Sixers win over the Bulls that completed the season sweep. Once again they score 120+ with James Harden in the lineup. The topic turns to Ben Simmons and the news that he will be on the bench Thursday when the Nets are in town. It’s more than just sitting on the bench. News broke that the reason he is sitting on the bench is to use it against the Sixers and the fans in a grievance he is going to file. Ben and his camp want to use any negativity that Ben receives in his grievance to recoup lost money. Mike, Tyrone and Jen are disgusted.
