And Michael Strahan replied with a tongue-in-cheek comment about the Giants beating the Patriots in Super Bowls XLVI and XLII. 

“I Love you but there is one team in NY that is your kryptonite! G-MEN!,” Strahan wrote. He also added flexing bicep emojis and a crying laughing emoji. 

-- The Celtics fell to the 76ers in the season opener on Wednesday night and Al Horford took the opportunity to roast one of his former teammates about flopping.

During the second quarter of the game, Horford was called for an offensive foul after Marcus Smart flopped on a screen attempt and Horford did not seem thrilled. 

After the game, Horford took a playful shot at Smart. 

“Marcus does such a good job of flopping, though, like, you know, selling it. Just making sure,” Horford said. “He does that. That’s what the does. When I was on his side I loved it, I thought it was great. But now, he got me. He got me pretty good.”
