In the situation that Brooklyn Nets needed more drama, Many fans were surprised to learn they had Ben Simmons recently deactivated his Instagram account.

In the early hours of Thursday morning, Simmons posted a photo wearing the Nets shirt, with an accompanying caption "Feeling amazing.

Kevin Durant has since sent the NBA the world into haywire, requesting the trade of his team, prompting many to believe that Brooklyn could also trade Kyrie Irving.

What does this mean? What is the reason why Simmons does this? Sure, and now that you've mentioned it, there are a lot of Brian Windhorst-related memes.

The public isn't sure what to think of the 25-year-old's decision to erase his social media profile.

Of course, the intense examination of each of his actions could be the reason for Simmons taking a break from Instagram.

Perhaps he's fed up with receiving negative remarks from strangers. Perhaps he's making a conscious effort to cut down on screen time. 

The reason may be much more innocent that the conspiracy theory that fans have been forming concerning him plotting to quit the Nets before ever putting on a uniform for the show.

However, the team is at a crossroads due to Durant and Irving now seeking tickets from Brooklyn.
