Philadelphia Eagles star Jason Kelce sent a pretty strong message to Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons during a recent press conference.

Kelce’s message to Simmons was to “just play better,” and he added that the three-time All-Star lacks accountability.

Kelce knows a thing or two about playing in Philadelphia. The NFL veteran has spent his entire professional career playing for the Eagles.

Simmons, on the other hand, is desperately trying to get out of the city. He was recently suspended by the Sixers for his conduct in practice, and all signs point to the 25-year-old still wanting out.

It’ll be very interesting to see if Simmons ends up playing in any games for the 76ers this season. If he does, he’ll surely be met with tons of criticism from fans.

Simmons averaged 14.3 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game last season. He also chipped in with some elite defense. However, his woes as a scorer emerged as a massive problem at times, especially in the playoffs.
