Nets star Ben Simmons gets boo’d when shown on screen at U.S. Open

·1 min read

The sports world on Friday night was centered on the women’s U.S. Open where tennis legend Serena Williams was playing in her final match. She has had one amazing career and everybody wanted to see what she would do in Queens.

Brooklyn Nets star Ben Simmons was in attendance for Williams’ final tennis match and he was shown on the jumbotron at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Considering that it’s New York, one might have assumed that he would get some love and cheers from the New York sports fans.

Instead, Simmons received a lot of boos to which he just smiled when he heard them. The former star of the Philadelphia 76ers has heard it all so far in his NBA career.

Simmons missed all of the 2021-22 season due to first a holdout with the Sixers to try and force a trade and then a back injury while with the Nets. The 3-time All-Star recently told Stephen A. Smith that he is back and he is ready to go for Brooklyn so it will be interesting to see his fit next to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
