Crowder said he's never had a coach say something to him before. Said Wittman was calling him soft, swearing.— Todd Dybas (@Todd_Dybas) January 17, 2016
Crowder on Wittman: "He was saying something about me being soft, and bleep, bleep, bleep about Nene hitting me on the John Wall foul."— Jay King (@ByJayKing) January 17, 2016
Out of all the players to call soft right? Now this is Crowder's side of the story. Randy Wittman may claim otherwise. Still it was very out of character for Crowder to get a technical at such an inopportune moment late in the game, so assuming something out of the ordinary set him off would be just that. And a head coach swearing and talking trash to an opposing player is not something you ordinarily see. Well until Rasheed or KG gets a head coaching job that is.
I wouldn't doubt that either Brad Stevens and/or Danny Ainge spoke to Crowder following last night's win and I expect Crowder to be less reactionary in such a crucial moment next time. JR 1/17/2016 10:42:00 PM Tweet Edit
