The F— Ben Simmons chants have returned. Have a feeling we’re going to see a lot of those tonight. Hope the kids here aren’t learning new words. – 7:59 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Global Tech News Daily

A loud “F*** Ben Simmons” chant starts for a few moments. KD throws down a dunk and then starts talking to some fans courtside. There is some serious energy in the building early. Nets have done a nice job maintaining their composure. There was no doubt KD would be ready to play. – 7:53 PM Jabari Young @JabariJYoung

Meanwhile in Philly… #76ers #Nets game is packed

Global Tech News Daily

Figure a market like Philly brings in $1 million to around $1.7 million range in tix revenue…tonight though..maybe closer to $2 million with secondary market tixs in demand for a just a glimpse of Ben Simmons

Sixers fans chant “F— Ben Simmons.” Kevin Durant with a dunk down the line, said something to someone sitting courtside. He roared as that one went thorough. – 7:51 PM Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA

The first “F Ben Simmons” chant of the night with 10:19 left in the first quarter. – 7:51 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

We’ve got “F**k Ben Simmons chants.” As an early good sign, Kevin Durant is pumped right now. – 7:51 PM Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin

More boos for Ben Simmons before the game #Sixers pic.twitter.com/JVCUlokt3C – 7:49 PM

Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly

Plenty of boos being directed at Ben Simmons after introductions. #Sixers – 7:46 PM Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps

Ben Simmons, wearing a double zero Louis Vuitton hockey jersey, walked out the court at the same time that James Harden, the man he was traded for, was introduced to a huge ovation. – 7:46 PM A. Sherrod Blakely @ASherrodblakely

Whoever thought Ben Simmons sitting courtside/on the bench tonight was a good idea… pic.twitter.com/LOFoFLr8ku – 7:43 PM Micah Adams @MicahAdams13

This is the most in demand 76ers ticket in over a decade going by ticket prices.

All to boo Ben Simmons, a player WHO ISN’T EVEN PLAYING!

The NBA is going full Raw and I love it.

Pro Wrestling Power Rankings:

1. NBA

2. WWE

3. AEW

4. PGA Tour – 7:39 PM Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps

Both Allen Iverson and Julius Erving are in the house tonight for this game, which absolutely has the feel of a late-round playoff game. Every single person in the lower bowl is on their feet waiting for Ben Simmons to come out to the court. – 7:38 PM Micah Adams @MicahAdams13

Ben Simmons in 4th quarter of his final 4 playoff games with the 76ers:

0-0 FG

34 minutes

If you try making a shot chart on NBA stats page, you can’t… because he took zero shots. – 7:32 PM Sirius XM NBA @SiriusXMNBA

The Nets and 76ers are tipping off in minutes for the first time since the James Harden/Ben Simmons trade!

Ian Eagle tells @Rick Kamla and @adaniels33 this could be a fierce rivalry for years to come.

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Greetings from the City of Brotherly Love. To quote The Black Eyed Peas, “Where is the love?” Ben Simmons has been booed on a Kyrie/Boston level and the game hasn’t even started. Nets-Sixers. James Harden and Joel Embiid vs. KD and Kyrie. Updates to come. Bring. It. On. – 7:20 PM Jon Johnson @jonjohnsonwip

I’ve got you for all things Ben Simmons, Sixers-Nets after the game on @SportsRadioWIP! 10’clock. – 7:15 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Ben Simmons spent somewhere north of 20 minutes on the floor with Patty Mills warming up. It’s easily the most visible he’s been pregame since the trade to Brooklyn. – 7:10 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

I did not see Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid acknowledge each other when they were on the court together for pregame warmups. – 7:09 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Ben Simmons makes the long walk back to the Nets’ locker room. pic.twitter.com/yT4xQnJKh6 – 7:09 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

The WiFi here in Philly is awful, but here’s what’s happened:

– Kevin Durant and James Harden warmed up pregame at the same time. Neither acknowledged the other.

– Sixers fans have largely booed Ben Simmons, but cheered him after a made layup.

– Simmons is warming up w/Patty. – 6:58 PM Michael Lee @MrMichaelLee

Ben Simmons is mostly here rebounding & passing to Patty Mills but he just threw down a dunk. The crowd cheered. Pleased to see him do what he wouldn’t with Trae Young approaching in Game 7. – 6:55 PM Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin

Ben Simmons on one end, Joel Embiid on the other. No interaction at all. #Sixers pic.twitter.com/OdWcbz3D3g – 6:55 PM

Ben Simmons is essentially just being a ball boy for Patty Mills in warm ups, but the crowd is chanting at him to shoot the ball and calling him a coward every time he gets the ball #Sixers – 6:53 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Ben Simmons already getting heavily booed on the court while with Patty Mills for pregame warmups. Mills has said he has his fellow Aussie’s back as he goes through this. pic.twitter.com/v9Uex2HR3R – 6:52 PM

Ben Simmons arrives for his first boos of the night. Fellow Aussie Patty Mills at his side. But it’s rather tame for now. Crowd just now trickling in. pic.twitter.com/8H4pEVQfV2 – 6:52 PM

Ben Simmons passing the ball to teammates from under the net is just too good. – 6:49 PM Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA

Ben Simmons is on the court for warmups. Fans are still arriving at the Wells Fargo Center, but there was a strong chorus of boos to start the evening. pic.twitter.com/bv8ibpt5wu – 6:47 PM

Ben Simmons steps on the floor to get a little walkthrough in pregame and gets booed loudly by the Philly fans already in the building. – 6:46 PM Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann

Ben Simmons just walked out on the court for warmups. Arena is only like 1/4 full but he was lustily booed. – 6:46 PM Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin

Ben Simmons has come out to warm up before tonight’s game. – 6:44 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Steve Nash explained why Ben Simmons wasn’t on the Nets road trip but is in PHI with his “little back incident.”

Said this one was a drive not a flight, planes don’t help. Adds it’s a “good thing for him to come back and experience it and get some of it out of the way.”

#nets pic.twitter.com/WUtx69RGm5 – 6:22 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Steve Nash said the Nets didn’t think it made sense for Ben Simmons to fly with them given his back, which is why he wasn’t in Boston or Charlotte. Philly is drivable, which is why he’s here. – 6:08 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Steve Nash says the decision to keep Ben Simmons home was back-related in the prior games. But this game was a drive away. – 6:07 PM Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA

Steve Nash confirms that the plan is still for Ben Simmons to be on the Nets bench tonight. – 6:07 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Steve Nash says Ben Simmons will be on the bench. – 6:06 PM Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly

Curious to see how #Sixers‘ fans react with Ben Simmons expected to sit on the #Nets‘ bench but not being shown on the scoreboard. – 5:37 PM StatMuse @statmuse

As if past six months weren’t enough, here are some quotes from Ben Simmons to get you fired up for tonight:

“When you can hoop, you can hoop. I feel like my IQ is very high… it’s a mismatch every time I step on the floor.”

“My creativity is probably something you can’t teach” – 2:54 PM Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin

Andre Drummond opens up on the team trading him, his relationship with Joel Embiid, and how he expects the fans to treat Ben Simmons #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/lists/andre-dr… via @SixersWire – 2:11 PM Sirius XM NBA @SiriusXMNBA

Ben Simmons will not take the court tonight in Philadelphia, but he’ll be on the bench.

@Eddie Johnson tells @TermineRadio it’s a good decision. We’re getting you ready for tonight all day and you can hear the game on NBA Radio at 7:30p ET! Listen here – https://t.co/AYipQpeyBw pic.twitter.com/EqGFMuEyVe – 1:45 PM

With the circus around Ben Simmons’ return serving as a backdrop, let’s do something weird and talk about basketball.

Andre Drummond when asked about Ben Simmons: “What he did obviously is none of my business. I wasn’t there for it. But he’s my teammate now, and he seems to be in a good space.”

I find this interesting since, technically, Simmons was also Drummond’s teammate with Sixers. – 12:57 PM Gina Mizell @ginamizell

Nets coach Steve Nash on the reception Ben Simmons should receive tonight in his return to Philly: “How many people in this world get to go in an arena and get booed by the entire place? I had it done to me, and I thought it was a privilege. I hope he enjoys the experience.” – 12:28 PM Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck

Controversial opinion: Ben Simmons is going to be booed less than expected tonight.

Unless they show him on jumbotron, there’s no real opportunity to direct it at him outside of chants developing organically. It’ll be very loud, but people are going to pay attention to the game – 11:58 AM Justin Grasso @JGrasso_

Steve Nash on Ben Simmons’ return to Philly tonight:

Last time Nets-Sixers had real beef, Philly fans went in on @Jared Dudley for jabbing at Ben Simmons. Now it’s Simmons, on the Nets, who will be getting this treatment.

I’m surprised LeBron didn’t shoot that with a clear lane on that drive. He was almost assuredly getting a basket or free throws. Felt like he pulled a Ben Simmons on that one. Instead, it’s overtime. – 10:32 PM Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly

More on this storyline

Brian Lewis: Ben Simmons went over and hugged the #76ers team security, then departed the court, showered with more boos. #nets #nba -via Twitter @NYPost_Lewis / March 10, 2022 Tom Westerholm: Stephanie Ready just reported that tonight is the most in-demand ticket in the last decade of 76ers games, which means Sixers fans are willing to pay more to yell at Ben Simmons than to attend a playoff game. You kind of have to respect how perfectly Philly that anecdote is lol -via Twitter @Tom_NBA / March 10, 2022 Nick Friedell: A veteran move — Simmons walks back on the floor before the game as the Sixers are getting introduced. After the lights go up, fans take notice of Simmons and start booing loudly again. -via Twitter @NickFriedell / March 10, 2022
