In celebration of Black History Month, members of the 76ers family share stories about some of the inspirational people in their lives.
BEN SIMMONS X ADAM GOODES
"Adam Goodes is an Australian rules football player who inspired me by the way he handled himself on the football field. He was called multiple racist things, a lot of racist slurs were thrown towards him, he was booed and heckled for multiple games. The way he handled it was informing people it’s not right, and teaching younger kids to act a certain way. He was able to handle situations the right way, and I have a lot of respect for him for that."
