So interesting how youtube.com/results?search_query=%23bensimmons #BenSimmons doesn’t have an Australian accent!
This change things I kinda like Ben Simmons now,I mean im from NYC and he still can’t shoot, but the narrative change he gang 🤟🏽get us a chip, get ur first chip!
This dude is such a delusional little cry baby. I can’t count how many times he said I just want to win. But if you really wanted to win you would have learned how to shoot
Good interview, still does not change my mind about Ben. Of course JJ is going to make him look good, JJ isn’t here to make players uncomfortable.
From everything Ive heard and read about Simmons, he’s an uncoachable baby.
Mess around and be a bust
All that time off he still got a mental block hard to listen to him talk, he really needs some help and take it serious
I honestly feel like JJ throws softball questions to everyone he interviews. He interviews them like his intentions is just to be able to get guest’s. Not to actually get them to reveal what everyone wants to know. Which is why most people watch.
Lol Ben not shooting threes this season
Screw Simmons. Hes a punk. He wasnt mental when he accepted the money
These asswipe prima donnas make me sick
Awful interview. No hard nor direct questions. Just J.J playing the defend the player at all cost. I'll never watch this podcast again. Two thumbs down.
Disappointing to see how much JJ is telling Simmons what he wants to hear instead of what he needs to hear tbh. The last thing Simmons needs is Yes Men.
Back injuries is from a lack of conditioning we don’t feel sorry for you bro
He right tho the kyrie and kd elites players in the nba ain’t no guarding them jus gotta hope they miss
If he himself can’t admit shooting issue for him now ben Simmons gone be out the leave before he 30
HT1n31Wh0P0&t=51m55s 51:55 Y’all are pretty corny and weird for playing it up like some attack on Ben specifically. Gerald Huston (the guy who did the prank) is widely known for doing this fake name mixup prank with celebrities and random lookalikes on a regular basis. It’s only “objectively not funny” to you because you think it was a personal attack at Ben exclusively. Also pretty convenient that Ben discovers an interview the guy did later but missed the part where he does this regularly (including doing so to Dejounte Murray right after the Paolo beef on Instagram).
Everyone has a story to tell. The real one though. . nice job you did it JJ. . mental health is not easy to deal with you need someone to help you come back to reality. . its not a joke. Media now a days is so hard and its too much. I hope everyone just keep your faith and better share your problem than being crazy solving it on our own. This podcast is helpful not only for Ben but to everyone and the lesson you get here. God bless everyone! 🤗👊
Thanks anyway to Jay Williams, I hope everyone has a guy like him.
Awwwww i kinda feel bad
This interview from Ben was hella cap
Yes man Redick. Nice to make Big Ben getting worse. He is so trash in net, lmao
