The NBA released the All-Rookie teams for the 2021-22 regular season and both teams included an interesting combination of players.
Due to his poor play during the season, Green’s inclusion on the first team has led to concerns. Many observers placed Herb Jones ahead of him for his 3-and-D play for the New Orleans Pelicans. Green was criticized for the league’s poorest and unproductive stats.
Bill Simmons made this comment early in the season, and it generated a lot of pushback.
Simmons said: “F— Jalen Green” and said that he had voted for New Orleans Pelicans forward Herbert Jones instead.”
These comments gave rise to a new controversy. Green tweeted after being announced as an All-Rookie First Team selection: “shoutout bill simmons my dawg fr [for real],”
Simmons gradually responded to Green:
shoutout bill simmons my dawg fr??
