                Shit like this is why I stopped watching/investing in sports. Shit used to be fun and exciting but idk what the fuck these leagues have turned into these days.

                            Raptors will win the East not this mob of overrated trash. Still not buying Embiid. Milwaukee and Celtics will go further than these bums.

                                        I don't believe for 1 second that sick child BS. Amir was not active - if his kid was sick then be with the kid. I'm sure the sixers would have given him permission being that he was not going to play in that game anyway. Secondly the use of cell phones or other electronic devices during a game goes against the NBA Rules. What if he has the game on his phone and he was listening in on the time-outs? How many times do you hear the coaches speak to the players during a time-out? You cant have these devices on you during a game. Expect a big fine and suspension. The question is will Embiid be suspended also because he was caught looking at that phone? Finally Ben Simmons is an idiot - all he did was piss off his fan base. Fans have the right to boo. I draw the line on trash talk but booing is part of the game. Simmons is lucky he doesn't play in New York. That fan base has long memories. They will tear him to shreds then demand that he be traded.

                                            Firstly cut the men some slack he wasnt even dressed to play in the game and Embidd just gave a little look at it. I am sure all three and anybody else blaming Amir Johnson for the lose has had a glance on their phone whilst driving did you die from it, no. Secondaly, if the message was about Amir Johnsons daughter than leave the men alone let him handle his business cause the health of his family goes before any game and surely anything else

                                                  Easy solution, have someone else in the staff in charge of that (Emergency Contacts). In case of an emergency that staff member can let the player know. Booom! Over with! Next topic.

                                                          Other part of this is, if his daughter was sick, what if he didnt have the precious secs to get up, go back to the locker room then make a call or text, his daughter is sick fuck everything else, family is too important and if he got a message bout a family member during a game and hes on thebench not doing anything, dammit im checking my phone

If it wasn't for Lebron James he would've been ringlets and irrelevant ...As much as I don't like Embiid cockiness...He was checking his phone and the other player was INACTIVE FOR THE WHOLE SEASON WHY HAVE HIM IN UNIFORM ANYWAY

So yes he should’ve went to the locker room. Kids get sick everyday. Unless his kids going to the hospital don’t look at your phone over a cold
