LeBron James irritant Jae Crowder absolutely goes off on Lakers superstar
Crowder fired shots at LeBron after the Suns eliminated the Lakers in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. In arguably his best shade, the Suns banger mocked The King by salsa dancing in Game 6, seemingly paying “homage” to LeBron’s latest commercial.
Last Tuesday, appearing on ESPN’s Jalen & Jacoby, Crowder explained his mental warfare with the four-time NBA MVP. He, however, admitted he had to bide his time.
“They tried to clown us during Game 3. I don’t know if ya’ll saw that. I told myself once we get this thing done, I got a few moves in my bag for them. That’s what I was thinking. I couldn’t dance Game 3, I had to wait till Game 6 when we got the job done a little bit.”
Crowder and LeBron sure have a history. They battled in the NBA Finals last year when Crowder was still with the Miami Heat. They were also once teammates with the Cleveland Cavaliers. They, however, didn’t spend much time together, and maybe that’s why the 30-year-old Crowder isn’t too friendly with LBJ.
But still, he tipped his hat to LeBron:
“Obviously, LeBron is a great player. He’s the greatest player in our league right now. I wanted to get him frustrated a little bit and hopefully, things would go our way. I think that’s what happened.”
Maybe when the season’s over, LeBron James and Jae Crowder can go salsa dancing together. No? OK.
