The Philadelphia 76ers’ summer of discontent drags on into fall as the stand off gets expensive for Ben Simmons who was initially discussed as a potential Portland target.

In what has been the story of the offseason, Simmons’ refusal to report in Philadelphia has prompted more fans to side with the 76ers franchise despite Coach Doc Rivers and teammate Joel Embiid initially throwing the point guard under the bus.

Blazers fans have been given extra ammunition against the Los Angeles Lakers this season with the flamboyant franchise trading for Damian Lillard nemesis Russell Westbrook.

More than half of NBA fans believe the Lakers will regret its decision to bring in the ageing overpaid point guard.
