Ben Simmons did a lot of complaining about his time with the Philadelphia 76ers in an interview that aired this week, and Austin Rivers implied that the former No. 1 overall pick was not truthful about the way things went down.

Simmons discussed a wide range of topics during an appearance on “The Old Man and the Three,” which is a podcast hosted by his former teammate JJ Redick. One of the questions Redick asked is why Simmons returned to practice ahead of last season after he had held out prior to that. Simmons said he was “trying to do the right thing” and blamed Sixers coach Doc Rivers and other members of the team for making his life difficult.

Simmons was uncooperative after he reported to the 76ers. That led to Rivers kicking him out of practice and a suspension. Simmons shared his side of the events.
