Residents in New York’s capital city came to its defense on Tuesday after WNBA legend Rebecca Lobo took a swipe at Albany during Monday night’s Elite Eight game between Iowa and LSU.

Lobo, who played for the WNBA’s New York Liberty during her pro career and starred at UConn in college, joked with fellow ESPN broadcaster Ryan Ruocco there wasn’t much to do in Albany. Ruocco talked about Caitlin Clark’s family trying to lure the sharpshooter out of her room before the regional final.

Lobo’s remarks didn’t sit well with some in the city.

"It felt unnecessarily harsh, and I think for a city of our size, we have a lot to offer," restaurateur Dominick Purnomo told News 10 in Albany.

"It was Easter weekend. You could’ve gone to Mass and taken in the cathedral. If you’re into history, we have the Albany Institute of History and Art, we have the New York State Museum."

Todd Shapiro, the owner of the "War Room" and a former spokesman for Ivana Trump, called for other bars and restaurants to cancel their ESPN subscriptions, according to the New York Post.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Kennedy told the newspaper if Lobo couldn’t find something to do in Albany, then that’s on her.
