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.
