When Jae Crowder was acquired by the Milwaukee Bucks a few months ago, some people were expecting to see a lot more of him.
He was a starting player for the Phoenix Suns for several years, so many predicted the same would be true in Milwaukee.
Instead, Crowder started in just three games for his new team and only played an average of 18.9 minutes.
He was also absent during multiple games due to a coaching decision by Mike Budenholzer.
And now Crowder is speaking out about all of this.
“I’ve never been in a situation like that. Eleven years. Check my résume,” Crowder said about his time with the Bucks, according to the Journal Sentinel.

Crowder doesn’t sound very happy about his current role with the now-eliminated Bucks.
But many fans on Twitter weren’t stepping up to defend him.
Instead, a majority of them used his comments as an opportunity to roast him.
“He thinks he’s way better than he really is,” one Twitter user said.

“bro got signed when he didn’t play basketball all year and expected to get minutes without building chemistry,” another said.

Others suggested that if he keeps talking like this, Crowder will set himself up to take a trip overseas.

However, there are some just as confused as Crowder about his lack of playing time.
They noted that he would be able to give Milwaukee three-pointers and much-needed defense too.
This made absolutely no sense. He would of made massive difference. Timely 3s and timely stops 🎯✋🏽

The Bucks have a lot to think about now that they’ve been pushed out of the playoffs after the first round.
Will they keep Crowder around, especially if he’s not happy with this position?
Or will he be traveling again to another team, one that might appreciate and use him more?NEXT: Fans React To What Giannis Antetokounmpo Said About Adjustments
