User: “Seems to be better at fishin’ than dishin’ and swishin,” mocking the NBA player.Simmons is projected to return to the Brooklyn Nets for the 2022–23 NBA season, despite seeing limited action that year.
In contrast to his regular performance, his averages of 6.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.1 assists during that season were the lowest of his career.Nonetheless, Brooklyn Nets supporters are keeping their fingers crossed that he can return to the form that saw him named to the All-NBA Third Team and the All-Defensive First Team in back-to-back seasons.
