Blake Griffin's Hilarious Reaction To 'F**k Ben Simmons' Chants By Philadelphia 76ers Fans: "Pretty Catchy"

Ben Simmons' career with the Philadelphia 76ers ended on a pretty bad note. The 3x NBA All-Star forced his way out of the team after announcing his disinterest in returning to play as a 76ers player at the start of the season.

After months of drama, Simmons' wish was fulfilled as he was traded to the Brooklyn Nets for James Harden. Although he was ready to start the new chapter of his career, it was certain that when he returned to Philadelphia, the crowd would be pretty pissed with him.

This turned out to be the reality as the Nets faced off against the 76ers recently. Simmons was showered with boos by the crowd. On top of that, the fans also had a chant going for him. They were chanting 'F**k Ben Simmons' at the top of their lungs.

Fortunately, the Nets won the game and many of his teammates even spoke up about protecting Simmons like a brother. But Blake Griffin put a hilarious spin to the chants. Fans recorded Griffin's reaction to the aforementioned chants from the sidelines.

According to the soon-to-be 33-year-old, the chants directed at Ben were 'pretty catchy.'

Now, that's a light-hearted approach towards a pretty hostile environment. It was quite obvious that the fans hated how Simmons handled his desire to leave the 76ers and he should expect the same kind of reaction for quite some time.

However, as of now, the biggest worry in Ben's mind must be to return to the court as soon as possible. With the regular season almost over, the Nets are yet to clinch a playoff spot.

When Simmons is back on the court, it will definitely bolster the morale of the team and increase the Nets' chances of avoiding the play-in tournament and booking a playoff spot.
