The Philadelphia 76ers vs CF Pachuca 2022 International Club Friendly Games match will take place on September 24 i.e on Saturday. While acknowledging that both parties might have handled his position during his contentious departure from the team more effectively, Ben Simmons claims that the Philadelphia 76ers did not help him with his mental health. The 26-year-old stated he needed treatment while playing for the Sixers and that many people in the organization didn’t support him as he suffered with his mental health during an appearance on former 76ers teammate J.J. Redick’s podcast, The Old Man & The Three. Simmons claimed he attempted “to do the right thing” by attempting to go back on the floor before last season despite vowing he would never play for the Sixers again. Things reached a boiling point when coach Doc Rivers expelled Simmons from practice for being a “distraction” after Simmons repeatedly refused to participate in an exercise.
Simmons, who was selected first overall in the 2016 draught and twice nominated to the league’s All-Defensive First Team (2020, 2021), also said that his extreme concentration on his shooting had a negative effect on his mental toughness. Redick also questioned Simmons about the missed dunk he had against the Atlanta Hawks in game seven of the 2021 playoff series. In what critics claimed was a calculated attempt to avoid being fouled and shooting free throws, the Australian was criticized by the media for passing rather than slamming the much smaller Trae Young at the rim.
