It’s been a tough year for Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons. The former first overall pick struggled during the NBA Playoffs and his team was eliminated by the Atlanta Hawks. Simmons was a complete no-show during the fourth quarter during the postseason. In addition, the star guard will probably be part of trade talks during the offseason. If Simmons remains with the 76ers, head coach Doc Rivers will focus on fixing Simmons shot. During the 76ers post game press conference following their post season exit, Rivers was asked if Simmons could be a point guard for a championship team. “I don’t know the answer to that right now,” said Rivers. Now? Ben Simmons is getting roasted at the ESPYs too.
ESPY’s Takes a Shot at Ben Simmons
Host Anthony Mackie took a fun jab at Ben Simmons at the ESPYs, that felt like a roast on Comedy Central.
ESPY’s taking shots at Ben Simmons

Mackie jokes that Simmons won a humanitarian award for building brick shelters for children with all his missed shots from the playoffs. He then would have two little girls join him on stage for them to thank Simmons. What a roast of Ben Simmons at the ESPYs!
The Mackie-Simmons segment was comical but it was seen with mixed reactions from people on social media. To be honest, I can’t remember the last time the ESPY’s have been relevant. I haven’t tuned in to watch the ESPN award show in years.
The last time I was invested in the ESPY’s was the year the late Stuart Scott received the Jimmy V award.
The joke was funny, but in all fairness, Simmons didn’t brick many shots because he barely took any during the playoffs.
