Jae Crowder after tiff with Celtics fans: ‘Obviously, I don’t want to leave Boston’
Jae Crowder expressed his displeasure with Celtics fans for cheering for Jazz forward Gordon Hayward. Prompted by one fan to love or leave Boston, Crowder said he’d have no problem leaving.
Cooled down, Crowder is taking a different tone.
Celtics president Danny Ainge has laughed off the tweet storm. Boston coach Brad Stevens says he just wants to move on.
It doesn’t seem the organization wants to hold it against Crowder.
And why would it?
Crowder already showed his devotion to the Celtics by locking into a cheap long-term contract. With that deal, the team will give him plenty of leeway and keep reaping the value.
Maybe fans should appreciate that a little more.
