"We kind of understand," the Sharks tweeted back in response. "But just know, @KingCrab15 looks pretty good on teal."
San Jose's Twitter account even added a mocked up "King Crab" No. 15 home jersey for the 49ers wideout.
Lesson learned. Crabtree was impressed.
"Can't sleep on the @SanJoseSharks," he later tweeted. "All luv... Is it ok to have 2 teams?"

Yeah, we here at Niners 365 think it's all good, just as long as the Sharks and Stars don't meet in the playoffs.
For those scoring at home, the Stars lost 4-3 to the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night. The Sharks open their 7-game series tonight at home against the Los Angeles Kings.
All the back-and-forth between Crabtree and the Sharks inspired some more creativity:
