Retired Los Angeles Lakers big man Shaquille O’Neal did not mince words when he spoke about Ben Simmons’ dismal Game 7 performance in the Eastern Conference semifinals. “If I play Game 1 and 2, and I know I’m not helping my team out, what do you think am I doing in Game 3?” said O’Neal about Simmons. “Don’t take me seven games to realize that.
