Ben Simmons Injury Update: Stephen A Smith Calls the Nets Guard “Pathetic” for Being Out of Game 4 against Celtics

The Ben Simmons injury has caused another controversy, as the Brooklyn Nets point guard has been ruled out of the all-important game 4 against the Celtics.  Popular media personality Stephen A. Smith has called Simmons “pathetic” for his repetitive behavior patterns.

The Brooklyn Nets are on the verge of being eliminated from the play-offs trailing 3-0 against the Celtics as they go into the fourth game of their playoff series. In a match where they need all their guns, one player who will not be taking part is Aussie point guard Ben Simmons. 

Simmons joined the Nets on February 10th. It was a controversial mid-season draft from the Philadelphia 76ers, in a deal that saw James Harden go the other way. But Simmons is yet to make an appearance all season. In fact, the last time Simmons played a game in the NBA was the seventh game in the Eastern Conference Semi-Final for the 76ers last year.

He has struggled with a back injury ever since joining the Nets. Simmons was supposed to be back for game four, though after the latest scans, he has been ruled out again. The latest Ben Simmons injury update has led to popular media personality Stephen A. Smith calling the Aussie “pathetic” for his actions.

‘I feel bad for anyone who is his teammate. He quit on LSU, he quit on the Philadelphia 76ers. Now he ain’t showing up for the Brooklyn Nets,’ Smith said on the ABC broadcast.

“We can point to all the excuses and rationale behind it that we want to.  Despite him not playing he still filed a grievance to collect $20 million that he has not earned. This is one of the most pathetic situations I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s pathetic, it’s sad.”
