Everyone has that friend that’s a “c’mon one more” guy. Turns out that guy is Ben Simmons. While trying to convince Karl-Anthony Towns to play another game of PUBG, Simmons dropped the hammer on the Hawks, assuring Towns he had plenty of time to play another game.
Turns out Simmons was right, as KAT messed around and put in a franchise record 56 points in a 126-114 win over the Hawks without Andrew Wiggins. For what it’s worth, Simmons had a cool 13, 10, 8 line as the 76ers beat the Knicks 118-101, despite Markelle Fultz trying his hardest to murder Joel Embiid.

I think the real question here is why the hell are KAT and Simmons playing PUBG? I mean it was cool for a while last year, but Fortnite has literally dominated the market since like September.
Bottom line: Simmons has an elite level troll game, but his video game taste actually resembles his basketball game a great deal.
Not switching from PUBG to Fornite resembles something that has gone out of style, much the way that Simmons’ 1950’s “shoot from within 4 feet of the hoop” has gone out of style.
