Irving confronted the heckler
Ben Simmons was the main enemy in the Wells Fargo Arena last night and ever since people saw him leaving the hotel before the game the insults started. It all culminated with "F**k Ben Simmon" chants in the arena, but the Nets and Ben got the last laugh with a dominant win that led the home crowd stunned and disappointed.
One Sixers fan sitting courtside was yelling at Ben Simmons about the $20 Million grievances he is asking for all the money he’s lost since being out. Since Irving was sitting right close by so, he naturally reacted and fired back at the heckler.
“Do y’all go around & do this? Is this your minion you carry around & record everything? Grow up!”
It will be interesting to see if Simmons and his team can actually secure him most of the money he had to pay in fines because if they succeed, that will add even more fuel to the fire. Last night's games showcased real animosity between these teams, and there is even a high probability they meet in the first round of the playoffs, making this one of the most exciting first-round series in recent NBA history with several underlying stories connecting the players.
