The Brooklyn Nets are definitely not in a good position right now. The duo of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving is expected to leave the franchise, and the team is in for a long off-season. Interestingly enough, amidst all the activity in the Nets camp, their newest signing’s latest actions have left fans confused.

Ben Simmons’ Instagram ID has been deactivated surprisingly. Nothing much is known behind the reason for his actions and it came at a weird time when the fans and the franchise are going through turmoil.

Fans react to Simmons’ latest update

Although Ben Simmons might not have played a single minute for the Nets, he has managed to leave the fanbase confused. Here are some of the best reactions to his latest Instagram update.


Clearly, the fans have left no stone unturned in roasting the former 76ers star.

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving’s uncertain future at Nets

Heading into the 2021-22 season, the Brooklyn Nets were one of the favorites to lift the NBA title. With a team consisting of players like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden, there was no reason to not count them as favorites.

However, injuries prevented the trio from inflicting major damage on the opposition. The first blow to the franchise and fans was dealt by James Harden’s trade to the Philadelphia 76ers. In return, the Nets received Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, and two first-round picks.

Despite losing their star player, the Nets still looked strong. They qualified for the playoffs and faced the Boston Celtics in the first round of playoffs. The Celtics ran riot as they swept the Nets 4-0.
