Our guy Kyle (the younger Kyle, not the Maestro) caught up with Ben Simmons on his way back from shootaround and asked him an important question:

Perfectly legit line of questioning. Philadelphia supported Ben Simmons! He was the chosen one! Now we’ve got reports that Klutch wants to file a grievance to recoup the lost money from the holdout. Keep in mind, Simmons said only a couple of weeks ago that the hold out had nothing to do with the fans or any of that. It’s ridiculous. Hog wash, all of it.

The people deserve answers.

edit – what’s with Ben dribbling a ball around? he had one coming out of shootaround, too. also, you know these guys are just gonna ebay the autographed merch… also read the room, pal.. these autograph seekers are the worst. scum bags
