Philadelphia sports fans have been dogged by a negative reputation for quite some time thanks to the behavior of a few overshadowing the majority who cheer for their teams passionately without crossing the line.

This occurred after Westbrook converted a layup while being fouled by 76ers guard T.J. McConnell, and in the video clip above you can also hear what the fan yelled (and if not, it doesn’t take a professional lip reader to figure it out).
