How Jordan Crawford-Carmelo Anthony feud unfolds

Posted By Ben Rohrbach On May 2, 2013 @ 9:52 am In General | 5 Comments

If the Celtics [1] ever pull off the seemingly impossible against the Knicks, let’s just say benchwarmer Jordan Crawford‘s weed socks [2] aren’t exactly the equivalent of Red Sox [3] ace Curt Schilling [4]‘s bloody sock in 2004.

Just as Kevin Garnett [5] denied the infamous Honey Nut Cheerios comment [6] about Carmelo Anthony‘s wife Alani “La La” Vasquez earlier in the season, Crawford did the same about similar internet speculation [7] after Game 5.

“Nah, they was talking to me, baby,” Crawford told The Boston Globe [8] after seemingly starting a verbal altercation [9] with Anthony and Raymond Felton [10] despite playing exactly zero minutes in the C’s 92-86 win. “They was talking to me. Yeah, they like me. I think it’s that smile I keep carrying. I think we’re playing freely, not thinking as much.”

While Anthony escalated the Garnett feud outside the Celtics’ team bus after the January incident, the struggling NBA MVP candidate chose not to engage Crawford [11] with his team on the brink of choking away a 3-0 series lead.

“I’m not thinking about no Jordan Crawford,” Anthony told reporters at the podium afterwards. “Not at this point in time. I’ll tell you that. I don’t even think he even deserves for you to be typing right now.”

Meanwhile, Crawford played dumb, which seems apt for a player talking trash after a DNP-coach’s decision.

“I don’t know what happened, you know what I’m saying?” he told the Globe. “I was on the bench the whole game, I don’t know why they was talking to me. They gotta be upset, their [expletives] tightening up. Of course they upset.”

Based on the way Doc Rivers [12] scolded rookie Fab Melo for sticking around the fracas, it’s safe to say the Celtics coach won’t be too pleased with Crawford. Maybe he’ll even get benched. Oh, wait …
