Philadelphia may be the City of Brotherly Love, but Mike Scott doesn't want Sixers fans to embrace that mantra when the Heat visit on Nov. 23.

Scott re-signed with Philadelphia on a two-year deal this summer, while former teammate Jimmy Butler is now with the Miami Heat. Well, Scott has requested Sixers fans boo the (expletive) out of Butler upon his return to the Wells Fargo Center.

Whether fans will boo Butler or not remains to be seen, as Butler didn't even spend a full season with Philly, getting traded from Minnesota in November. Jimmy Buckets was also the Sixers' best player in the playoffs, so it's hard to blame the team's shortcomings on him.

Scott and Butler are still on good terms, and while there isn't real beef between the two, it's always nice to see competitiveness between NBA players. Scott, who's always a golden interview, said he would foul Butler hard, and with Butler's hard-nosed, no-nonsense attitude, he'll likely be ecstatic to oblige.

Philadelphia should remain a top dog in the Eastern Conference while Butler will likely have to spearhead a playoff run for Miami. One thing is certain though -- it'll be a treat to see these two teams duke it out three times this season.
