A sports fan who phoned into a Philadelphia radio station really wanted to say what he had to say about Ben Simmons, despite real life things happening to him on the other side of the phone.
When he was asked, “What’s on your mind?” “Uh, nothing, someone just hit my car,” he replied.
Angelo Cataldi and the Morning Team on 94WIP were completely shocked as the guy, James’ stated, “Yeah, and they’re driving off,” James said. “It’s OK.”
The hosts encouraged James to get a license plate number while James let them know the other driver “swerved into my lane.”
“Anyway, I’m calling about Ben Simmons,” he said, unperturbed.
“You just got in a car accident and you’re calling about Ben Simmons?”
“Yeah,” James replied, “because he annoys me more than someone hitting my car and driving off.”
“I wanna talk about how annoying Ben Simmons is because it makes me sick that he is lying about mental health,” James said. Simmons has reportedly told the team he has mental health issues. He hasn’t played all season. The team reportedly wants its own “mental health professionals” involved.
The hosts asked James to remain on to award him the “winner of the week” prize for handling the hit-and-run and radio call simultaneously.
