Over the weekend, Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens compared Jae Crowder to Kevin Garnett.
“That’s a guy I look up to,” Crowder said after practice Sunday. “And I heard a lot of stories about him and that’s what I try to mold myself into being. I try to become a guy like him and approach practices like games.”
“That’s an honor for him to say that, but I’m far from that,” the forward continued. “That’s a goal of mine to become a guy like him. That’s my approach is to try to become the most vocal leader at practice and when the cameras and stuff aren’t around.”
