Ben Simmons is a changed man.

The Philadelphia 76ers star, who has been blasted over his lack of shooting skills for years, has finally had enough and responding back to trolls.

On Monday, the Philadelphia 76ers point guard posted a new set of photos on Instagram showing him on and off the basketball court. In one photo showing Simmons getting work in, someone who goes by the username @worldwidechad commented, “he really acting like he was about to shoot in that second pic.”

Simmons saw the comment and fired back with, “Ya lips look like ya got stung by a [bee] nutty professor ass,” he wrote.

Philadelphia 76ers coach Doc Rivers said he didn’t know if Ben Simmons could be the point guard for a championship team after the Philadelphia guard scored five points in his team’s season-ending loss to the Atlanta Hawks in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

“I don’t know the answer to that right now,” Rivers said.

Although Simmons had a game-high 13 assists, he attempted just four field goals, making two, in the 76ers’ 103-96 loss to the Hawks in Philadelphia.

The team is currently in the midst of trying to trade him, but their price remains way too high.
