Nets’ Ben Simmons and Blake Griffin were linked to each other before becoming teammates in Brooklyn
The Brooklyn Nets are in trouble, and it’s no secret. Despite a star roster, the Nets are 3-17 in their last 20 games. With the return of Kevin Durant, it was expected that things would improve, but unfortunately that is not the case. Despite KD returning, the Nets have gone 0-2 in their last two games. The more games they lose, the louder the noise for Ben Simmons’ return.
As Ben Simmons prepared to hit the ground for the first time this season, his comeback was delayed by a back injury. Now, he’s expected to be out for another week or so before finally stepping onto the court for the Nets. Even before speaking as Net, Ben Simmons has a history with a player in the team: Blake Griffin. Although they’ve never played a single game together, the two share more history than any other player on the Nets’ roster.
