The FIFA video game series is one of the most popular sports video games out there, and it’s especially popular among athletes.

Philadelphia 76ers first-overall pick Ben Simmons took to the sticks and posted this seemingly innocent picture to his Twitter feed.

But Simmons broke one of the golden rules of FIFA: You don’t use Barcelona. They are the best team in the game. It’s almost like using some sort of custom team where you just stack the best players in the world.

That didn’t fly well with Simmons’ teammate, Joel Embiid.

Then, Simmons bit right back.

Then, seemingly out of no where, Chad Johnson, formally known as Chad Ochocinco, not only calls out Simmons on his FIFA team choice, but calls him out as a basketball player. 

It’s all in good fun, but don’t expect Simmons to change his FIFA ways any time soon.
