  3. Gerald hudson is the guy in the candy shop 😂😂😂 he does that to a lot of celebrities. I thought it was staffed at first because he’s constantly “running” into celebs

  4. I’m a Ben Simmons fan

  5. A+ content JJ. Simmons is a good guy but he’s been a little out of touch it seems. He’s bright and a thinking man and I think he can get back to the very top

  6. As sixers fan I can’t be mad at him as a person . He seems like a good dude . But what he did to organization sitting out the entire season is hard to forgive .

  7. Damn you guys didn’t ask him if he thinks he shoots with the wrong hand?

  8. Fantastic show guys! Best of luck to Ben….looking forward to seeing back on the court.
