Philly is going national! Sixers forward Ben Simmons is going to appear on an upcoming episode of CBS’s “Happy Together”! This isn’t the first time Simmons has had a brush with Hollywood — he notoriously dated Kendall Jenner over the summer. The episode will air this Monday, November 5th at 8:30 p.m. on CBS. Ben will play himself, too.
"In his appearance, the NBA Rookie of the Year meets with Damon Wayans Jr.'s Jake for a three-on-three basketball tournament as part of a romantic gesture planned by his wife, Claire (Amber Stevens West). As it turns out, in the series, friend/roommate Cooper James (Felix Mallard) is actually familiar with Simmons, and sets up the meeting between Jake and the Sixers star. However, not everything goes as planned. Simmons ends up disappointed with Jake's performance in the game, which is maybe to be expected given Simmons' typical presence on the court."
