Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett says there is no comparison between his team’s fans and those of the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Gary Dzen of Boston.com.
After Boston’s 101-85 victory over Philadelphia in Game 5 Monday, Garnett was asked to compare Boston’s crowd with the ones he had seen in Philadelphia in Games 3 and 4.
“Not even close,” Garnett told reporters. “You got fans and then you got fair-weather fans. Take that how you want.”
In March, former Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon, now with the Phillies, took a shot at the Boston faithful for not being as knowledgeable about the game.
“The Philly fans tend to know the game a little better, being in the National League, you know, the way the game is played,”Papelbon said.
The two towns will face off again Wednesday night, when Garnett and the Celtics travel to Philly for Game 6.
