Jae Crowder is ready for a playoff push

Acquired in the Rajon Rondo trade two months ago, Jae Crowder has wasted no time becoming a fan favorite, and it's clear he is all in for a Celtics playoff run:

It's good to see Crowder so quickly ingrain himself into the Celtics organization as they battle for a playoff spot. He reminds me of an old school player with his heart and hustle on the floor.

He is also proving to be a key factor in the C's recent 4-1 stretch, averaging 10 points a game in that span, while grabbing 5.5 rebounds.

It will be interesting to see if the Celts decide to bring back Crowder after the season. The 24-year old is a restricted  free agent at the end of the year, and could be had at an affordable number.

Bottom line, what's not to like from a guy who still rocks dreadlocks?
