Ben Simmons aside, the Nets still have major issues

The roars picked up moments later Ben Simmons emerged from the tunnel, the good vibes from pre-game warmups—where Simmons signed autographs, posed for pictures, even heard “F— all these fans, Joel is scared!” from one supporter—buried under an avalanche of boos. They booed when Simmons was introduced and each time he touched the ball. They erupted when he missed a free throw. They wore Mister Softee t-shirts with Simmons’s likeness and taped expletives on his jerseys. No Joel Embiidno James Harden, no problem for the more than 20,000 Sixers fans who crammed into Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night. They didn’t come to see one team win as much as one player lose.
