To put it mildly, Ben Simmons ended the NBA season in a terrible way. The 76ers rebounded from the playoffs in Game 7 of their loss to the Atlanta Hawks in front of the Philadelphia home audience. In the weeks since, the direct tsunami of trading speculation has been uninterrupted, putting Simmons’ disappointing playoff performance under a high-power microscope.

According to reports, Simmons bought a custom home in the exclusive Hidden Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, a closed area in the Santa Monica Mountains where the Kardashian family and other famous celebrities own flashy real estate.
