NBA’s Ben Simmons Joins FaZe Clan as Investor, Call Me ‘FaZe Simmo’
Ben simmons has a new team – no, he hasn’t been traded (yet) … the NBA superstar has joined the famous FaZe clan!
Simmons – a diehard gamer – is the latest celebrity investor and has even been given a new FaZe nickname to go with him … FAZE SIMMO!
The Philadelphia 76ers great man will serve as “the organization’s ambassador for content as well as an advocate for gaming and esports and the expansion of FaZe Clan globally,” the company said.
FaZe Clan also notes that he will not disclose the amount of Ben’s investment, although it’s probably fair to assume that’s a considerable number.
Simmons started playing with the FaZe talent in 2018 – mostly playing Call of Duty with FaZe Temperrr.
The two recently participated in a COD celebrity pro-am that raised nearly $ 125,000 to help those affected by COVID-19.
“Gambling is a big part of my life, so it was a natural progression to personally invest in this industry,” Simmons said.
“FaZe Clan represents the pinnacle of video game culture, and I can’t wait to meet new fans around the world.”
FaZe is one of the largest and most influential video game companies – recently surpassing the 1 billion view mark on its YouTube channel.
Simmons joins a celebrity investment group that already has stars like Offset, Juju Smith-Schuster, Swae lee, Pit bull, Nyjah huston and more.
