Kings troll Jae Crowder over Jimmy Butler beef
The Sacramento Kings may have lost to the Utah Jazz on the hardwood on Saturday night, but they at least managed to beat them on the Internet.
After a sequence in the first quarter where Kings big man Skal Labissiere blocked Jazz forward Jae Crowder at the rim, the Kings posted this perfect tweet that trolled Crowder.

Sound familiar? That’s because it was a direct spoof of the spat Crowder got into with Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Jimmy Butler the night before.

The Kings did wind up losing the game to the Jazz by the final of 98-91. But that was definitely still a Hall of Fame-caliber tweet and a worthy addition to what was already a priceless backstory behind Butler and Crowder’s beef.
