Ben Simmons & Joel Embiid
Joel Embiid will not be playing for the Sixers tonight, which could be good for Simmons. As everyone knows, Simmons and Embiid did not end their friendship on good terms. Additionally, Embiid seems to hate Simmons. Regardless, Simmons is taking a diplomatic approach when asked about it.
“We had a lot of highlights, and we had a lot of great times,” Simmons said of Embiid. “I got a lot of love for Joel too. Obviously, it didn’t work out, but that’s life and not everything works out in your favor. So I wish him the best, obviously not a championship against us, but the best.”
