  • Simmons can't figure out why he isn't an All-Star

    Philadelphia 76ers rookie Ben Simmons is not happy after being passed over four times in the last three weeks to make the NBA All-Star team. "I don't really know what an All-Star is anymore," Simmons told the Philadelphia Inquirer Friday. The 21-year-old is averaging 16.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game this season, but he has been passed over by Andre Drummond, Goran Dragic, Kemba Walker and Paul George for spots on the All-Star team.

    The Philadelphia 76ers' Ben Simmons and Toronto Raptors' Kyle Lowry were ejected with 6.5 seconds left in a testy game that saw the Sixers hold on for a 117-111 win Monday. Simmons and Lowry exchanged words in a dustup near midcourt, and continued to talk and gesture at each other after they were tossed. Simmons described the altercation as "nothing," but said, "I'm not going to take no s--- from anybody." "I don't know if they're trying to test me or see how I am on the court, but I won't play around," the rookie said. Simmons and Lowry had gotten into it several times throughout the game, with Simmons bumping into the back of Lowry's legs while picking up the ball to inbound it, and the two

  • Simmons plays down Lowry clash after Sixers win

    Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons brushed off a clash with Toronto Raptors ace Kyle Lowry after the two players were ejected in the Sixers 117-111 win on Monday. Simmons and Lowry were tossed with just under seven seconds left on the clock after clashing in mid-court, the last of several confrontations between the two during the testy game. As they left the court, Lowry gestured angrily at Simmons, appearing to invite him to continue the exchange in the player's tunnel.
