Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal appeared on Shaq’s “Big Podcast,” where the two legends slammed Ben Simmons for sharing Ferrari and ‘actress’ Instagram photos and for not working toward getting better in the game. Now, his fans want to know more about him and his net worth.

Barkley stated that Simmons disappointed him by taking a $200 million contract from the Sixers, while reportedly requesting a trade. “They’re not saying, ‘Come over and cut my grass,’ they’re saying ‘Ben, we need you to learn how to shoot the basketball,” said Barkley, who also ripped the 76ers point guard last week. “Ben Simmons, you’re not that good,” Shaq said. “In this league, do you want to be good? Or do you want to be great? You’re not great. But if you want to get to that next level, you have to be great, and to be great, you have to work on your game. “Don’t be putting pictures up on your Instagram of your Ferrari or what actress you’re hanging around with. When you play for a down like Philadelphia, Boston, L.A., Miami, hard-working town, they don’t give a s–t about none of that. They want you to come work hard and play hard.”
