Epic Ben 76ers

During the 2020 NBA playoffs, Ben Simmons suffered a knee injury that ended his season and kept him out of the 76-game series. During the 2020-21 NBA season, the 76ers earned a top seed in the Eastern Conference. They were the favorites to win the second playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks. But then everything collapsed. The Hawks continued to foul Ben late in the fourth quarter and were unable to take his free throws. Things came to a boiling point when Ben went through an open dunk against the Hawks in Game 7 of the series.

The Offseason was full of drama for the 76ers and Ben. And eventually, when the next season started, he refused to take part with the team, as he noticed mental health issues. Things never improved between the two parties and he was eventually traded to the Brooklyn Nets on the trade deadline for James Harden. Ben hasn’t played in over a year and hopefully when he comes back he’ll be up to his levels again.
