We were all shocked and excited to see that Ben Simmons was finally going to suit up and make his debut for the Brooklyn Nets in Game 4 versus Boston, but it seems that is not happening. The latest report is that Ben is out even for that game, and the legendary Reggie Miller decided to go in on Simmons.

No fire

Shortly after it was reported that Ben Simmons, after all, will not make his debut for the Nets, NBA legend and one of the best shooters in history, Reggie Miller, took to Twitter to share his frustrations with Ben and his mentality:

"Cmon MAN!!! Out for Game 4 when it was rumored you were going to make your debut. This dude has ZERO competitive fire .. As small a chance as the Nets have to come back in this series, you still have KD and Kyrie, all you need is to win ONE game and take it from there.. #ManUp"

It's pretty great to see one of the best shooters call out one of the worst and see through the smoke Ben has been presenting over the past year. From the drama in Philly, various injuries, and mental problems, to constantly delaying his debut in Brooklyn, Ben has gotten on the bad side of the majority of the NBA world.

His Nets are overmatched and in a tough situation, down 3-0 to a great Celtics team. But one brink of hope and fresh air was the report that Ben will finally suit up and try to help the Nets possibly turn it around. But now, as it will be a do or die game, Ben has been listed out again.

People can't help but wonder if the poor competitive spirit and mental instability have prevented Simmons from finally playing in such a big game. It was hard to imagine that Ben would play after almost a year in such a big game with the Nets' season on the line, and we can see why, as Simmons will once again run away from the challenge. Good on Reggie for calling him out.
