Al Horford’s sister Anna is one of the most vocal siblings in the NBA today.
She recently made headlines when she publicly offered her thoughts on newly-acquired Dallas Mavericks star, Kyrie Irving.
Before that, she went viral for calling out Los Angeles Lakers fans.
As it turns out, Anna isn’t a huge fan of the Philadelphia 76ers either. This past week, she mocked the team after Boston defeated them despite being shorthanded.
Cs just beat your team without Al, Marcus, Rob, or Jaylen. The smoke is as non-existent as this rivalry. https://t.co/lxY8kSQV2q

The dynamic involved here is an interesting one because Al had something of a disastrous stint with the Sixers where he undeformed massively. Philly originally got him because he consistently wrecked Joel Embiid in the playoffs while on the Celtics, but he simply couldn’t replicate the magic.
Eventually Al got traded, before ultimately finding his way back to Boston, but the beef between his clan and Philly remains.
Reactions to Anna’s Sixers tweet were largely what one would expect.
Just like what Bron used to say about your man’s Atlanta hawks 🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/N5zTX21SSi

This really annoyed me this morning when I saw this, but what really annoys me is that she’s kind of right…. Celtics are and have always been a better team than us. I’m looking at Tobias Harris and Tyrese Maxey. Carry the hell on… https://t.co/DRqyQi1k0o

The Celtics are arguably the best team in the league right now.
Barring something crazy happening, they will likely represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals.

Who will they face off against the title out of the West? Time will tell.
Either way, it’s a safe bet Anna will inevitably have something to say about the topic.
