Ben Simmons has botched his attempt at leaving Philadelphia. Every single step he's taken to force a trade hasn't worked. He's now suspended for a game after being kicked out of practice.
According to reports "not mentally ready yet" to play.
Ben Simmons is not against playing, but he is not mentally ready yet, sources tell @ShamsCharania.
In his first meeting with Sixers personnel last week, Simmons reiterated that he was not mentally ready to rejoin the team. https://t.co/2wJrd7VgiE

What he is mentally ready for is the strip club, allegedly. According to Landon Buford of Forty Eight Minutes, Ben hit up a strip club in Philly after being kicked out of practice.

Dude is starting to go down the road of other so-called superstars who let their professional careers go straight down the shitter. Guys like Johnny Football. You don't want to get into Johnny Football territory and end up playing in another country, unless of course you're an idiot.
That can't entirely be ruled out in this case given Ben's moves lately....
