Ben Simmons and his crew need to be looking into the federal witness protection program after Shaq nearly murdered him with words on Thursday night. Shaq absolutely eviscerated Ben Simmons while simultaneously hyping up Joel Embiid for being a beast on the court.
Shaq did NOT hold back when talking about Ben Simmons. You can see the video below and I’ve also included his comments that are likely to feel like a dagger in the heart of Ben as he continues to sit out every single game this season.
Shaq Destroys Ben Simmons On TV
"Great players get criticized. But the great players also step up to the criticism and perform. So this other guy, I don't respect him. I'd get rid of him." –– @SHAQ

If you’re a reader and not a watcher, here’s some of what Shaq had to say about Ben Simmons:
“I stay on big guys because I care about them. I want them to play a certain way, I want them to play at a certain level. The difference between [Embiid] and his soft partner [Simmons] is, he can take criticism without being a crybaby and he still wants to play. Me and Charles, we’ve been on [Embiid] and we stay on him.
We told him to his face what he needs to do. He didn’t cry, he didn’t say ‘I want to get traded’, he didn’t complain about mistreatment. And that’s the difference. That’s why I like and respect him. The other guy, I don’t respect him… Great players get criticized. But the great players also step up to the criticism and perform. So this other guy, I don’t respect him. I would get rid of him.”
Here’s the thing about Shaq that Ben Simmons REALLY needs to consider right now: he’s one of the nicest people in the business. If you find yourself being admonished by Shaq for something other than playing mistakes then you should really take his criticism to heart and look inward.
