Ben Simmons has provided plenty of fodder over the last several months, and now his head coach is trying to explain things. Philadelphia Sixers head coach Doc Rivers was a guest on Morning Joe on MSNBC today. When asked about the Simmons situation, Rivers said it reminded him of Donald Trump’s election conspiracies, as everyone is trying to look for clues on if he’ll end up playing for the Sixers this season.
“There’s times that I think we’re getting through,” Rivers said “And there’s times that I think that I’m talking to people who still believe Trump won the election. So I’m not sure, but I’m going to keep trying.”

The current situation has Simmons planning to sit out training camp, and he has vowed to never play another game with the team to boot. .
The Sixers are playing it cool, and clearly in no rush to trade their disgruntled superstar.
At this point reconciliation seems futile.
