Suns’ Jae Crowder is still savagely trolling LeBron James, Lakers
LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers trolled Jae Crowder early in their first-round series, so it was only fair game for Crowder to return the favor as the Phoenix Suns dominated the Lakers in the last three games.
Crowder had plenty of fun at LeBron’s expense during Game 6 as the Suns closed out the series. The veteran even got thrown out late in the game for doing a salsa dance to taunt James.
Crowder isn’t done trolling, taking to Instagram on Friday with a message for LeBron and the Lakers:

It was quite the eventful series for Crowder. He shot 2-of-20 from 3-point range over the first three games, and the worst of the trolling against him was in Game 3.
Crowder then turned the tables on the Lakers, going 12-of-26 from long distance over the final three games of the series. That includes a 6-of-9 showing from deep in Thursday’s series-ending Game 6. He hit several daggers down the stretch to finish the series off.
Crowder earned the right to talk all this smack. He had it shoved in his face, but he was able to shove it right back thanks to his play and the Suns’ red-hot performance. The Crowder-LeBron rivalry has been fun to watch, and I’m sure not many figured Jae would be the one to get the last laugh this time around.
