Apparently, there is a huge misconception out there regarding Ben Simmons. The professional basketball player who refused to shoot – or take hard coaching at any point during his Philadelphia 76ers career – actually loved the City of Brotherly Love.

Was he playing with everyone’s emotions this whole time? Simmons, a three-time All-Star over five seasons with the Sixers, recently sat down with JJ Redick’s Old Man & The Three podcast for a bombshell interview. The full version drops on Thursday, September 22 but Redick – a teammate of Simmons for two years – released a snippet.

In it, Simmons reveals that he loved his time in Philly and called Sixers fans “unbelievable.” One problem: they have something to say about everything, like his inability to develop a jumper. That, and the local media sometimes rubbed him the wrong way.

“People in Philly just want to have something to say about f****** anything! Like, everything, like literally everything,” Simmons told Redick. “I post a picture of a f****** car or a dog and I got reporters saying you should be in the f****** gym. Come on, man. But, yeah, for sure. Philly is obviously a sports city. And my experience playing there was incredible. Like, for the most part, it was incredible. I had a great time. Like, the fans are unbelievable.”

So both Carson Wentz and Ben Simmons said they had a great experience with their time in Philly today…?

Shocked yet? Wait, this unexpected love story gets better. Simmons still owns real estate in Philadelphia and his brother lives there. Brooklyn doesn’t bring the same vibe.

“I still have an apartment there, so I do own some real estate in Philadelphia still. So, I’m, you know … I feel like I’m a part of Philly still. But, yeah … it’s just unique. Like even being in Brooklyn now, it’s completely different. Like, this is a different experience for me.

“And, you know, I value that time I did spend in Philly ’cause I was able to learn and grow in that city. And I got friends for life there. I got … my brother lives there, like I got family there. So, yeah, Philly’s great. I think people like have a thought that I think I hate it.”
