It’s draft season, so everyone wants to know about who Ben Simmons’ girlfriend is. But, guys, it’s hard to become a professional basketball player. Some people find that relationships are just distracting and sapping, and Ben Simmons seems like one of those individuals right now. I’m talking, of course, about the somewhat amusing comment he made that “basketball is my girlfriend.” If Ben Simmons’ girlfriend is basketball, you know he’s only going to draw those papa razzi even quicker. I think it’s a decent dodge if someone asks you if you’re seeing someone.
Ben Simmons’ girlfriend is basketball. This much we know. We also know about Ben Simmons’ sister Emily Bush and who she’s married to. That would be former NFL running back Michael Bush. Emily’s a cool chick, but what’s most important about her is that she works for Klutch Sports. That’s the same agency that represents Lebron James. So it came as no surprise when he announced in March of 2016 that he would also be represented by Klutch. However, it should be noted that Emily Bush was hired after the agency decided to go after him. This was back in 2014. That may be a slightly cynical take, but it’s true nonetheless. Hey, she got a cool job out of it working in branding and marketing as an executive. Sounds fine!
Simmons is going to feel silly when the grimy internet media finally figures out who he’s seeing. My guess is he’s got multiple ladies right now, but if Ben Simmons girlfriend is basketball, that would make my guess null and void. His sister Emily and Michael are living in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Simmons family is very tight, and they hail from Australia. When you really think about it, Arizona is the closest thing America has to offer climate-wise when compared to Australia. Ben and his girlfriend, the basketball, hang out there a lot. Normally I’d run through a list of potential candidates for Ben to hook up with, but when you’re aiming to be picked first in the draft, you really need to keep your focus on the ball.
