The NBA is the league of petty and it has been for some time. Ahead of Thursday night’s marquee Game 3 matchup between the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets in New York City, this was taken to a whole new level.
Nets fans decided to have some fun at the expense of Sixers youngster Ben Simmons. And it’s all sorts of amazing. Check out this poster near the site of Game 3 Thursday evening.
Simmons’ jumper is apparently missing. That’s assuming he ever had one in the first place. For those looking to track down Simmons’ jumper, he was last seen drinking in Orlando and has an identifying characteristic of being just average.
No reason to fret. Just contact Kendall Jenner should you find Simmons’ jumper. There’s troll jobs. There’s savage troll jobs. Then, there’s this.
All of this comes after a war of words between Simmons and Jared Dudley after the Nets’ veteran called his younger counterpart average.
Through the first two games of the series, Simmons is shooting 57 percent from the field. Though, most of those points have come inside the paint. Whether that changes Thursday remains to be seen.
If not, we’re sure Nets fans will find another way to troll the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year.
