Shaq is not a fan of Ben Simmon’s performance during the Eastern Conference semifinal. We think it’s safe to say, Shaq isn’t a fan of many basketball players.
During the postgame press conference, Simmons admitted that he was not playing his best basketball. After he Sixers lost Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinal against the Atlanta Hawks with a final score of 103-96.
“I ain’t shoot well from the line this series,” said Simmons told ESPN. “Offensively, I wasn’t there. I didn’t do enough for my teammates…There’s a lot of things that I need to work on.”
TNT analyst O’Neal refused to acknowledge any excuses for the 2016 No. 1 overall pick.
“If I played Game 1 and 2 and I know I’m not helping my teammates, what do you think I’m going to do in Game 3? It don’t take seven games to realize that, I don’t wanna hear that man,” Diesel said.
“If he was in my locker room I would have knocked his a– out. I don’t want to hear that, get out of my face with that.”
