Growing up in New Jersey can be interesting when it comes to supporting sports teams. Depending on what part of the state you grew up in, you might be a fan of New York teams or Philly teams. For example; I grew up in what would be considered "Southern New Jersey," and my grandfather was a diehard Sixers fan. Most of my NFL-loving friends are Eagles fans. Just how it goes.

Karl-Anthony Towns, despite being a center for the Minnesota Timberwolves, grew up in Edison, New Jersey, which by extension means he's an Eagles fan. After the Eagles blew out the Vikings to take the NFC Championship last night, Townes expressed that via Twitter.

"Congrats Vikings on a great season as well," Towns began, "much love, Minneapolis! But, I gotta go with the Birds, born and bred a fan," utilizing the #FlyEaglesFly hashtag. Minnesota fans didn't give a shit, and decided to give Towns the business over this tweet.

Some folks decided this was the opportune time to throw shade at Towns' performance on the court.

There were users who understood why Towns was tweeting this.

Surprisingly, Joel Embiid, the Sixers center who recently roasted Towns over Instagram and was rooting for the Eagles himself, didn't have any shots to take at Towns. He's still got time.
