After a slow start for the Sixers, the team pulled off a blockbuster trade for All-Star guard/forward Jimmy Butler, pairing him with fellow superstars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.
The team has since won eight of ten games and appears to be among the contenders in the Eastern Conference.
Ben and Kendall also seem to be strong contenders for the hottest sports couple of the year.
So how do the Sixers brass feel about Ben Simmons’ romance with Kendall?
76ers co-owner Michael Rubin spoke with INSIDER to discuss the 76ers’ whirlwind season, from the Butler trade, to his favorite Embiid story, Simmons’ relationship with Kendall Jenner, and Fultz.
Davis: What do you think about the petition that fans signed to keep Kendall Jenner from Sixers games?
I think it’s ridiculous. I think Kendall’s awesome. I’ve spent a bunch of time with her. I was with Kendall a few days ago and Kendall insisted on going home and getting a good night’s sleep when Ben wanted to stay out for a late dinner. So, Kendall’s been a great influence on him, and we’ve won every game she’s been at but one so far.
So there you have it.
No one is upset in the Sixers front office about Simmons and Kendall.
You can’t argue with the team winning.
Now if they start losing, and Simmons gets mired in some sort of slump, then yes they have a reason to be concerned.
Until then, nothing to complain about.
Winning cures all.
