In hindsight, though, Crawford said he probably would have accepted a sixth-man role. “I would have. The reason I wasn’t as comfortable with it as I should be is because we weren’t a good team,” he said. “I was thinking, ‘Are we a good team? Are we fighting for something?’ ” Boston Herald

The guard sat out his last four games prior to his trade to the Celtics last February, after alienating Wizards management with his emotional response to the rise of John Wall and Bradley Beal ahead of him in the rotation. “I knew it was coming, but I should have been more professional with it,” Crawford said yesterday of his response to being bumped out of a starting role last season after Wall returned from injury.

Of course, Jordan Crawford wondered if he’d ever get the chance he’s receiving now. When the shooting guard played for Washington last year at this time, in fact, that very thought crossed his mind more than once. “I mean, there are times when you think certain things are going to happen that don’t go as planned, so you have doubt, a little bit, of how your career panned out, because that’s not what you dreamed of when you were little,” Crawford said Friday night.

Carmelo Anthony said his wife, La La Vazquez, has a right to be “upset’’ her name resurfaced during the Celtics series. Boston reserve Jordan Crawford, according to replays, appears to have shouted a vulgar remark at Anthony regarding Vazquez after the final buzzer of Wednesday’s Game 5. Vazquez expressed her disapproval Thursday on Twitter and Anthony said she has the right to express her views — even if it focused more attention on the controversy. “I would be upset too if I was her,’’ Anthony said at the Knicks’ shootaround at Suffolk University yesterday morning. “She’s always getting thrown into the mix of the Boston Celtic series. I would be upset if I was here. She’s her own person. At the end of the day, she has the right to say whatever she wants to say.’’ New York Post

After the game, Celtics guard Jordan Crawford -- who didn't play in Game 5 -- appeared to have some words with Anthony as the teams were walking off the court.

White while Knicks point guard Raymond Felton chimed in. "Just some words," said Felton. "Nothing serious." Boston Globe
