Blake Griffin Jumps into the Mitchell/Simmons ‘Beef’

Over the weekend, Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons made sure we know where he stands when it comes to this year’s Rookie of the Year race.

“Who would I pick? Me, 100 percent,” Simmons said in a recent interview with ESPN. “I think I have been playing solid all year. If you look at the numbers, you will see. People who know the game know.” When asked if any rookies impressed Simmons this season, he answered β€œnone.”

Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell, Simmons’ only real competition for the award, took exception with Simmons’ blind spot, and the two stars have been beefing ever since. First, Mitchell tweeted a Waka Flocka Flame GIF in response to the slight from Simmons.

  1. Being in the league a year more is advantage. You build chemistry with team mates you get to know the sytem get the feeling of being around the NBA. They need to change the rules

  2. Mitchell was eating hot pockets in his dorm room around this time last year. While Simmons had a whole year of Nba Training and a lot of time on the Bench to learn the game. Mitchell should be the Roty just by being a real rook and leading his team to a playoff in the west.

  3. I got why y'all trynna give Mitchell ROTY, he got a exciting story. Came out of nowhere, amazing highlights, definitly a future star. But there's no valid argument that mitchell is better than Ben.
    Everybody recognize his greatness, that's not about that
