Jae Crowder has taken the trash talk from the court to social media.
Crowder was ejected at the end of Phoenix’s 113-100 Game 6 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday after receiving a technical for “salsa dancing,” which was really poking fun at the same moves LeBron James made in a Mountain Dew commercial.
The technical was Crowder’s second of the game after he received one earlier in the contest as part of a double-technical with a Lakers player.

That was just the start of the shade Crowder had in store for the Lakers star, though.
On Friday, Crowder posted a photo of his dance with the caption, “AINT NO FUN WHEN THE RABBIT GOT THE GUN.!! 12 MORE TO GO.!! BIG 99” — a reference to a tweet James posted in May.
A third photo in the Instagram carousel is a screenshot of Crowder pouting at James during the Suns’ Game 4 win when James was questioning a foul call.
The Suns handed James his first ever first-round playoff series loss out of 15 appearances. Phoenix goes on to face the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference semifinals series beginning Monday.
