Josh Jackson ejected for NSFW taunting of Ben Simmons (Video)

Detroit Pistons, Philadelphia 76ers

Josh Jackson got ejected after he had a NSFW exchange with Ben Simmons.

The Philadelphia 76ers had a night to forget Monday. They fell 119-104 to the now 4-13 Detroit Pistons and were even taunted in the process.

Ben Simmons took the brunt of the taunting from Pistons wing Josh Jackson in particular. A NSFW exchange was caught on camera and led to Jackson getting ejected from the game.

Jackson lets Simmons know how he feels

There are plenty of layers to the video. The best of all may be the referee smiling in the background as he sees the exchange go down. He had to hear what was being said and didn’t hide his amusement.

76ers fans, and Simmons for that matter, won’t get too worked up about this. The team is still 12-6 and sitting atop the Eastern Conference, while the Pistons have the most losses in the entire NBA so far this season.

Simmons did have an off night in only 21 minutes of play. He finished with 11 points and 4 assists and can now prepare for a Wednesday night showdown against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Jackson’s numbers weren’t much better to warrant the trash talk. He had 12 points in 21 minutes and added 7 rebounds. But he was clearly feeling himself, and you have to respect the confidence as his Pistons took down a top contender.

Simmons gets his fair share of hate and disrespect, and Jackson was clearly mad about something the 76ers’ point forward did. Pistons fans will be hoping this can spark some sort of run after a terrible start to the season.
