Sixers fans on social media were pissed after the Villanova basketball account on X praised “our guys” Jalen Brunson and Donte DiVincenzo for nailing “two HUGE 3s to seal the Win in Game 2” for the Knicks.

Josh Hart, a teammate of those players on Villanova’s 2016 NCAA championship team and now with the Knicks, called anyone angered over that message — construed as a diss to the hometown 76ers — “idiotic.”

“Why? That’s so stupid. Villanova’s in our blood, bro,” Hart said after today’s Knicks practice.

“That’s a bond that goes deeper than where you’re from or who you’re rooting for or whatever. Like, we have a bond there that goes beyond basketball, that goes beyond any of that stuff.

“So for Philly fans to be mad about that, I think that’s idiotic. That’s who we are. We’re a family. We played for the ones that come before us there, and that’s how it is there. So I don’t care about it. I think it’s idiotic that Philly fans are mad about it. Because whether they like it or not, Villanova’s in our blood.”
