茶色, フランダース, ニュージャージーネイティブ, 地元のファンに好意を持ってカレーしようとして、シモンズについての発言でアスリートを批判した.
“All these Philly athletes tryna s— on Simmons for extra pat on the back from Philly fans. Cornball activity,” 茶色, a fourth-year player for the Cowboys, wrote on インスタグラム.
He didn’t mention anyone by name, だが イーグルス offensive lineman Jason Kelce took issue with Simmons earlier in the week as he was suspended for a game for conduct detrimental to the team. He didn’t hold back when he was asked about the point guard’s situation.
“You write your own narrative. What’s going on, I don’t want to crush any other players, but what’s going on with the 76ers, ベン・シモンズ, stuff like that. All that is because of a lack of accountability, a lack of owning up to mistakes and a lack of correcting things,” 彼は言った, 経由して NBC Sports Philadelphia.
“If all that got corrected, you fix the free throws, if you’re getting better as a player, none of this is happening. Everybody can b—- and complain about how tough this city is to play in. Just play better, おとこ. This city will love you.”
彼が追加した: “I really don’t think this is a hard place to play, to be honest with you.”
It was later reported that Simmons was dealing with mental health issues and needed to take a break from the team. Star player Joel Embiid on Friday asked Philly fans to tone down the boos and chants against his teammate.
It’s unclear when Simmons will return but the team has expressed its support for him.
