Celtics fan DeVonta Smith is taking some heat on Twitter after Sixers’ Game 1 victory over Boston
DeVonta Smith is one of the most likable athletes currently playing in the city of Philadelphia. Being humble, talented, and productive will win over almost every Philly sports fan, and Smitty embodies all three.
But, his love for the Boston Celtics is deplorable behavior and worthy of getting him shipped out of town. Every 94WIP caller would surely agree.
I’m obviously joking. Do not mistake me for a braindead WIP caller, please.
Nevertheless, Smitty was pretty active on Twitter during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals between the Sixers and Celtics Monday night. He didn’t go overboard with any Boston propaganda, but his DeVonta Smith Softball account (his Twitter account dedicated to his annual celebrity softball game) did show the Sixers some love during their triumphant win.
DeVonta Smith will be a full-blown Sixers fan in no time

Similarly to how Cowboys edge rusher Micah Parsons secretly wants to be an Eagle, I have a feeling Smitty wants to root for the Sixers deep down. He knows damn well how this city gets when one of their teams goes on a championship run. Might as well hop on the bandwagon now before it’s too late. It’s way better on this side, DeVonta, I swear.
In order to fully convert DeVonta Smith to a true believer of The Process, it would only be right to announce him as the bell ringer for Game 3 in Philadelphia. Jayson Tatum would more than likely have a mental breakdown watching one of his friends turn their back on him like that. It’s all a mental game at this point. Tatum folds like a lawn chair if Smith rings the bell on Friday. Guaranteed.

Great post! DeVonta Smith seems like a really likable athlete and it’s interesting to see his Twitter activity during the Sixers and Celtics game. Do you think he’ll eventually convert to being a full-blown Sixers fan? And what do you think the chances are of him being announced as the bell ringer for Game 3? [logical question]
