THE SIXERS might have chuckled at Kevin Garnett’s comments about their fans, but they neither agreed nor appreciated them.
“We’ll see the fans tomorrow,” Elton Brand said after Tuesday’s light practice. “We appreciate our fans. We know we have their support and they’ve got our backs. I’m sure they’re going to show him how fair-weather they are tomorrow.”
Following the Celtics’ 101-85 victory in Game 5 on Monday night in Boston, Garnett said Philadelphia fans weren’t as loyal as Boston fans. He described Philly-area fans as “fair-weather,” a different kind of four-letter f-word, but one just as caustic.
