Ben Simmons Says Joel Embiid Sucks At NBA 2k


Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid have great chemistry on the court. The two young stars are the future of The 76ers and are already dominating the East, leading the team to their first playoff appearance in six years.

Simmons and Embiid are also good friends and do spend spare time with each other outside of NBA commitments.

Simmons is currently in Australia, promoting the new NBA 2K19 game coming out September 11th. He was asked who among the 76ers is the best player of the game, he immediately pointed out how Embiid plays way too much 2K.

"You know what, Joel plays that game a lot. But I'm better, obviously," Simmons said.

They both will be on the front cover of NBA games this year with Simmons being featured on the Australian version of NBA 2k19 and Embiid will be on the official cover of NBA Live 19.

NBA 2k19 gave Ben Simmons a rating of 87 overall, same as rookies Donovan Mitchell and Jayson Tatum. They have not announced Embiid’s rating yet but I’m sure there will be some friendly banter between them when it releases.
