76ers May Have to Consider This Old Ben Simmons Tweet Before Drafting Him (Photo)

For the past few years whenever some NFL or NBA player gets drafted, people love to search way back into their social media archives, mostly their old tweets when they were young teenagers. It looks like Ben Simmons may be another victim of this.

With the Philadelphia 76ers getting the No. 1 pick for the 2016 NBA Draft, it is likely they'll either draft Simmons or Brandon Ingram. If they decide to go with Simmons, they may have to consider this tweet that the former LSU star wrote back in 2011.

Looks like Simmons isn't a huge fan of Philly:

Simmons was 15 years old when he wrote this tweet, so you got to cut the dude some slack. Also, this picture has been making rounds on Twitter today. After doing some quick searches, I have yet to find any evidence that this tweet is real (unless Simmons quickly deleted this). 

Regardless if it's real or not, the 76ers won't be factoring this tweet into their decision at all in all seriousness. 

I guess we'll see when June rolls around.


Tweet is confirmed fake. It's a photoshop of Eagles' Wendell Smallwood's old tweet:
