Ben Simmons’ Return To Philadelphia Inspires Laughable Memes

Tuesday night, Ben Simmons made his triumphant return to Philadelphia. Many were anticipating this return, as there would be an increased amount of jeers. Obviously, Simmons did not leave Philadelphia on amicable terms, and Sixers supporters wanted to ensure that he received a cool reception.

In the end, Simmons was just fine against the Sixers. He put up 11 points, 11 assists, and seven rebounds in the loss. Overall, it wasn’t his best game, but it’s not like he had a shockingly bad game. However, it is important to note that his team lost to a depleted Sixers squad.

During the announcement of the starting lineups, Simmons was hit with plenty of boos from the crowd. As you can see in the video down below, Ben Simmons was hit with a chorus of jeers. It was fairly loud, although it wasn’t even close to what some fans expected.

Interestingly enough, Simmons was not impressed by the boos. In his press conference after the game, the Nets star said he expected it to be a lot worse. Needless to say, the Philly fans did not live up to their reputation. For fans around the league, it was disappointing.

What wasn’t disappointing, however, was the array of memes that were delivered as a result of this game. The Nets were terrible, despite having Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant present. That said, many of these memes were more at the Nets’ expense, then Simmons.

If there is anything we have learned from this game, it’s that Simmons can still be a very effective player. Additionally, it has taught us that the Nets are actually not very good, and they can’t keep relying on two players. They are now 8-10 this season, and it’s going to take a huge effort to get them to the top of the conference.
