While on JJ Redick's "The Old Man and the Three" podcast, Brooklyn Nets star Ben Simmons opened up about his struggle with mental health...
quote:

"I was in such a bad place where I was like, f---, I'm trying to get here and you guys are, like, throwing all these other things at me to where you're not helping. And that's all I wanted, was help," Simmons said when talking about his time in Philly.
That's when he called out Shaquille O'Neal... (The Spun)

Victim mindset by Simmons. Shaq will ride any day with a man who will work hard. He did not “call out” Shaq at all - he just revealed his lack of character.

This sounded like some shite a high school girl would say about her “former best friend”

How does it usually work out for people that call out Shaq? Shaq would perma-shatter this boy's fragile ego if he was mean.

Simmons acted so arrogant...why would Shaq reach out?

Learn your lessons as you see fit young guy...

Shaq called him out because he cared...

Needed help with what exactly? You either want to put in the work to be great or don’t. Nobody is going to be hold your hand and baby you like they did in HS and college. Success is earned not given. This kids counties to prove he’s nothing but a self entitled spoiled brat.

I have nothing but respect for Shaq. Ben Simmons, not so much.
He quit on his LSU team, never gave Philly his all.

Okay maybe that would have been nice. But why don't he reach out to Shaq if he considered him an older brother?

Too many people these days expect everyone around them to be their shrink. No one has the time, energy, or emotional strength to deal with other people's made up problems.

Every basketball guy I knew went on and on about Simmons. I never saw it. All I saw was a guy that didn't give a shite about anything. He couldn't shoot and still can't. He didn't want to work on his game at all. He was as good as he will ever be then and now. It's quite sad really.

This guy. Sucked on the LSU tit. Sucked on the Philly tit. Cries when Shaq wouldn't let him suck on his tit.
