Philadelphia has built up quite the resume as a tough place to play, but after Al Horford was just sent packing today for the OKC Thunder, his sister gave her two cents on Philly fans.

To be fair to Sixers fans, there’s anecdotal evidence of vicious fans everywhere, but Philly always seems to leave a bad taste. Even more important here, Horford was seen as the “odd man out” as a center playing alongside star big man Joel Embiid. It’s not his fault the Sixers offered him $109 million, so it looks like the fans took out their frustrations with his contract on his family.
Again, that’s annoying but predictable.
Philadelphia is likely to get a “thank you for welcoming me and my family” Instagram post from Al Horford later this week, but who knows if he means it. If his sister knows anything, which she probably does, it looks like we just got a sneak peak at how Horford really felt about Philly.
