Fandom runs deep in the city of Philadelphia with the Eagles, 76ers and Phillies (among others) all enjoying success. Eagles fans are known as some of the die-hard followers around the league, and new top draft pick DeVonta Smith will see that soon enough.

However, he might be getting off to the wrong foot with some in Philly after revealing his favorite NBA team.

Smith is a devoted Boston Celtics fan. And despite arriving in Philadelphia, he's remaining loyal rather than switching over to the 76ers. At least for now.

"You can for sure get me to the game, but convert me? I don't know about that one."

The Celtics and 76ers have one of the most entertaining rivalries in the NBA. They could even face each other in this year's playoffs. Smith's Celtics fandom could cause some problems for the new Eagle before he even takes the field.

Still, whatever love was lost for the former Alabama star can be won back if he balls out as a rookie. The 117 receptions for 1,856 yards and 23 TDs he put up last season showcased his potential as a top wideout at the next level.

If he gives Jalen Hurts the receiver help he needs, maybe Eagles/76ers fans can look past his unfortunate NBA fandom.
