Celtics’ Jae Crowder Fires Back At Tweet About Potential Lack Of Playing Time

Boston Celtics forward Jae Crowder isn’t afraid to respond to critical tweets, and he did so again Tuesday when someone tagged him in a tweet about how much playing time he’ll get as a result of the team’s offseason moves.

Crowder wasn’t pleased with fans cheering for Gordon Hayward when the then-Utah Jazz forward played at TD Garden last season. Hayward since has signed with the Celtics as a free agent on a max contract, but there still should be a starting spot available for Crowder.

Crowder is a versatile player, and he could be the C’s starter at small or power forward on opening night, depending on where head coach Brad Stevens puts Hayward.

Still, the veteran forward should probably worry less about what people on Twitter think and just focus on getting ready for the upcoming season. Expectations for the Celtics are as high as they’ve been since 2008, when the team won its 17th NBA title.
