Shaq, Barkley to Ben Simmons: Hindi ka naman kagalingan!
Hall of Famers Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley are sick of the Ben Simmons drama.
On “The Big Podcast” with Shaq, both NBA legends gave their honest take about the trade rumors surrounding the disgruntled star from Philadelphia 76ers.
Well here’s what they have to say:
“Well, I’m disappointed in Ben Simmons,” Barkley said.
“When you give somebody $200M to dribble a stupid basketball, and the only thing you asked him was be better as a player, and their first response is, ‘I don’t wanna play here anymore,’ that disappoints me as a player. It disappoints me as a fan. They’re not saying, ‘Hey, come over here and cut my grass.’ They’re saying, ‘Ben, we need you to learn how to shoot the basketball.”
“Ben Simmons you’re not that good,” Shaq said.
“And then, in this league, do you want to be good or do you want to be great? You’re not great. But if you want to get to that next level, you have to be great. And to be great, you have to work on your game.”
“Don’t be putting pictures on your Instagram of your Ferrari or what actress you’re hanging around with. When you play for a town like Philadelphia, Boston, L.A., Miami—a hard-working town—they don’t give a s— about none of that. They want you to come, work hard and play hard.”
