Ben Simmons sank the 76ers' championship hopes by refusing to shoot & has now tanked his trade value by refusing to show up. He has some legit gripes about being thrown under the bus after his flop but Philly won't forgive him for running from accountability for his own failings.

Salvy is about to go down as one of the greatest catchers to ever do it.
There are a million bananas things about Salvy this season but breaking that record playing home games at *that* stadium should not be overlooked. Also, he’s a one-day stomach bug away from playing every game of the season as a primary catcher, which, come on.
Salute to JJ Redick. I first interviewed him at the Peach Jam back in 2001, when he was the sharpshooter on Boo Williams' legendary AAU program. He'd already committed to Duke, where he became a beloved villain. Retires after building a 15-year NBA career off grit & a jumper 👏
