After Sixers practice yesterday, Tobias Harris didn’t hold back about the Ben Simmons situation:
“We got an opening to our season coming up. Truth be told, that’s honestly where our focus is. We’re grown men here, this isn’t middle school, 7th grade, 8th grade ‘Oh you did this to me! You did this!’
“Nah, as soon as we step out on that floor, it’s just basketball and honestly that’s the way it should be. We’re here for one thing, and that’s to be the best team we can be and compete, get better as a group.
“So all the energy and this or that, the vibe was what it was. Was it perfect? No. But we’re here to do a job and that’s to win basketball games. So put our big boy on the floor and we get on the floor and do what we do.
Tobias Harris was asked if the vibe at practice today was awkward. He smiled and facetiously said, "No, it was perfectly fine."
And then he expanded on the Sixers' mindset with Ben Simmons returning. pic.twitter.com/SZcdSMP2si
