‘Need proof she’s free and safe’: Tobias Harris hilarious responds to fan who had grandma locked in cage until Sixers shut down Raptors
Tobias Harris responds to a fan on Twitter who caged his grandmother until the Sixers knocked out the Raptors in the first round of the playoffs.
After winning the first three games of the first-round series against the Raptors, the Sixers were stunned by Pascal Siakam and co. who won Games 4 and 5. Given Doc Rivers’ infamous record of leading 3-1 in the playoff series, losing back-to-back games was a concern for many.
One fan even went so far as to share a photo of her own grandmother locked up until the Sixers “shut down the Raptors.”
