Ben Simmons owns this embarrassing NBA distinction
So far, Ben Simmons looks like a player who hasn't played regular season basketball for over a year.

The Nets point guard wasn't acquired for his scoring prowess, but his offensive numbers are downright ugly.
Brooklyn was hoping that Simmons' defense, rebounding and playmaking would be a major asset, but on Wednesday night, Giannis Antetokounmpo played bully ball to the tune of 43 points and 14 rebounds as the Nets lost by 11 in Milwaukee.
Head coach Steve Nash was ejected in the third quarter after arguing a defensive foul call on Patty Mills. Simmons' rust and the Nets lack of overall offensive and defensive continuity have them sitting at the bottom of the Eastern conference at 1-3 to start the year.
