Philadelphia Sixers Front Office
Ben Simmons elicits backlash because he's a star who refuses to conform to stardom while Collin Sexton is a non-star who refuses to acknowledge his non-stardom.
Imagination has failed for this weird epoch of the Sixers, if they can be said to have ever attempted it in earnest. More accurately, Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and Tobias Harris are a logjam that no one ever tried very hard to solve.
Ben Simmons is not subtle or syncopated. He is simply quiet. Powerful nerves, a lack of understanding, whatever it is.
