Brad Stevens’ full response when asked about Jae Crowder’s comments on Boston fans cheering Gordon Hayward on @985TheSportsHub: pic.twitter.com/Su1ydxTNJz— Chris Forsberg (@ESPNForsberg) January 4, 2017
Knew this was going to happen today. Crowder was definitely in the wrong last night and it was important for the Celtics to nip this in the bud immediately. Some fans cheering during player introductions for a soon to be free agent is nothing new. Happened last year with Kevin Durant as well (and DeMarcus Cousins more recently). And it's not like Gordon Hayward and Crowder couldn't coexist on the floor for the Celtics.
Crowder overreacted and Stevens talked to him. Like Brad said, Crowder's body of work in Boston the past two years should trump one night's outburst. Time to move on and continue the winning streak.
