There was no way out for him though. I firmly believe he would be booed at home on a consistent basis even if he had showed up with no drama. The fans have already turned on him.

I mean, is it really better if he just half ass plays like Harden did for Houston in his last days there? Houston was a trash team, so he could afford to do that. Philly needs to win now, and Ben isn't going to be a part of that. So why pretend?

There are no winners in this as long as it continues. But the idea that Ben is the only childish one is silly. Putting his salary in escrow to deduct fines from it while not paying him is ridiculous.
