Word On The Street is Ben Simmons is Broke
Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports
According to Howard Eskin, via 97.5 The Game, Sixers' Ben Simmons is now broke...
quote:

"I was told by somebody very reliable he may be tapped out, broke," Eskin said on Tuesday's 94WIP Evening Show with Joe Giglio. "Cash flow broke. Because he's losing so much money, but he spent so much money. 17.5 million dollar home, remember he has to pay taxes too. 17.5 million dollar home. He's got two homes in the Philadelphia area, probably worth eight or nine million. He buys a new car every month, four or five hundred thousand. He just spends money like it's nothing because he thinks it never ends. And the person that told me, it's very reliable that he has got serious cash flow issues."
Simmons is already looking to sell a home in New Jersey worth $5 million.

Moral of the story: don’t quit your multi million dollar job. A job at McDonald’s, will not make up the difference.

What did Rick James tell Charlie Murphy after he messed up his couch? Something about not giving them money?

The Sixers were fools to draft a 19 yr. old, just like the Pelicans.

No one will ever tell this kid “No” or even what is right. This will not change. We experienced the beginning of it first hand. Outside of LSU fans, no one believed it.

The headline is misleading. He isn't broke. He just doesn't have much liquidity.

Yeah I'm sure he was thinking about long term investments with his spending habits.

Broke is not having cash flow...a 5 million dollar house doesn't do me anything if I can't sell it AND I have to pay a god awful amount of taxes on it.
