Here’s What Ben Simmons Said About LeBron James Passing On The Sixers
LeBron James became free agent earlier this summer, and many thought that he’d join another team. He did join the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Philadelphia 76ers lost their chance to sign him. Ben Simmons is fine with this.
LeBron James is ready for his first season with the Lakers, and the Philadelphia 76ers aren’t bothered by this at all. According to Ben Simmons, the team is even confident about 2018. The Lakers have every right to be confident about entering the new season, but what about the 76ers?
There was sure a slight disappointment after Bron made his final decision in July. I mean, Philadelphia was one of the options after all.
The 2018 Rookie of the Year says that his team is doing just fine. The 76ers do wish that LeBron made a different decision, but they can live with it.
“A little bit. At the same time, he did the right thing for him and his family. But it would’ve been great to learn from him, him being on the team and obviously competing for a championship. But we have pieces to get there,” Simmons said when asked whether he’s disappointed with LeBron’s decision to sign with the Lakers.

The pairing of LeBron and Simmons was pretty popular, but the king of basketball was more into the Lakers thing.
The 76ers had a “star-hunting” offseason, and landed Wilson Chandler.
LeBron did the best for his family and his career. he’s pretty active in other fields, too. Production, sports gear… Although basketball is his first love, LeBron likes the way Los Angeles handles things. There are more opportunities for great deals, and his series became popular long before their release. This says a lot about his work. I bet this man doesn’t even have a free minute in his packed schedule.
