Ben Simmons Explains Mistake Against Hawks In 2021 NBA Playoff Series

NBA fans will never forget Ben Simmons missing a dunk during Game 7 of the 2021 Eastern Conference Semifinals. The former Philadelphia 76ers guard passed the ball instead of a dunk over Atlanta Hawks’ Trae Young, which resulted in a failed move.

The 76ers lost the game and the series, and the consequences were swift. Coach Doc Rivers questioned Simmons’ ability at the post-game press conference, and team president Daryl Morey reportedly attempted to switch the 6’10” point guard after the season.
