Doc Rivers doesn’t seem too confident that Ben Simmons can lead a team to a championship.

Ben Simmons had a horrible series against the Hawks and bizarrely refused to shoot the ball in crunch time for the team.

At one point in the game, Simmons even passed on a play that should have resulted in an easy dunk.

After the game, Rivers was asked if he thought Simmons could be the point guard of a championship team and the Sixers head coach appeared to throw Simmons under the bus by giving a non-committal answer to the question.
