After being drafted as the No.1 overall pick, Ben Simmons was penciled in as a franchise cornerstone for the Philadelphia 76ers alongside superstar big man Joel Embiid. That seemed the case before Simmons flamed out against the Atlanta Hawks in the 2021 NBA playoffs.

Simmons’ career then took a wild turn from there. Eventually, the three-time All-Star was traded to the Brooklyn Nets for former MVP James Harden at the trade deadline last season.

While playing well on defense, while also still having a good eye for his teammates as a playmaker, Simmons still struggles to shoot from basically anywhere on the court.

Now, Simmons is the lone (former) All-Star left in town, after Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving were traded in the past days. This fact however, had NBA Twitter make all the Ben Simmons jokes.
