The Gastroenteritis Blues: (80) Ben Simmons Vows to Never Play for the Sixers again & Doc Tells Some Lies on TV with Zo of RTRS

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Portland Trail Blazers Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Sports

On today’s episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve, Dan and Emily are joined by Zo of the Rights to Ricky Sanchez Podcast. Zo and the gang discuss yesterday’s Woj bomb and the report that Ben Simmons has reportedly vowed to never play another game as a 76er. What about the nugget from the article implying Simmons no longer wants to play with Joel Embiid, specifically? Or Simmons’ reported desire to “have his own team” so-to-speak.

Then, they break down a calamitous and unnecessary day of media availability from Doc Rivers after his appearance on ESPN’s First Take. What do they make of Rivers’ media posturing? What about the reports from Stephen A. Smith about Portland discussing a CJ McCollum/Robert Covington deal for Simmons, or the Brooklyn Nets’ interest in a Kyrie-for-Ben swap?
