Boston Celtics Rumors
Isaiah Thomas wasn’t the only Boston Celtics player who had something (not entirely positive) to say about Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker’s 70-point game Friday. When the NBA posted a photo of the Suns celebrating Booker’s accomplishment , complete with Booker holding up a sheet of paper with “70” written on it, Wilt-style, Celtics forward Jae Crowder commented, “NEVER SEEN SO MANY GUYS HAPPY AFTER AN ‘L.’” Booker quickly fired back with “you can’t guard me.” Fair.
After perhaps the funniest player-to-player social media interaction of the year, Crowder walked his comment back a little bit. His next comment was, “I WAS TALKING BOUT THEM DUDES AROUND YOU. BUT ILL SEE U NEXT YR.!” Sure.
Adam Himmelsbach: Jaylen brown congratulated Booker. Booker: “I told him you’re here in Boston. You’re winning, so you should be more happy than me.”
Scott Souza: #Celtics coach Brad Stevens said he’ll leave it up to players to discuss the Devin Booker stat pad, but was not happy with effort.
