Watch: Ben Simmons laughs in Jared Dudley’s face
The disrespect from Ben Simmons to Jared Dudley was real on Thursday night.
Dudley was called for fouling JJ Redick on a 3-point shot attempt in the corner late in the third quarter of Game 3 between the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets. Dudley was in disbelief over the call and trying to protest it by complaining to an official.
Simmons gave Dudley a funny glare and could be seen laughing at him.

Why would Simmons take enjoyment in Dudley’s frustration? During some of the trash talk back-and-forth between the teams, Dudley called Simmons “average” as a player in the halfcourt.
Watching Dudley get frustrated in a game where his 76ers were winning big over the Nets probably was pure joy for Simmons.
