HoopsHype Jamal Crawford rumors
Doc Rivers on Friday told Rowan Kavner, who writes for the Clippers’ website, that he is not concerned about sixth-man Jamal Crawford’s inflamed bursa sac in his right (shooting) elbow. Crawford apparently banged the elbow during Wednesday’s victory at Indiana. “It’s just a bursa sac,” said Rivers, whose team plays Friday at 4 p.m. at Washington (on Prime Ticket). “I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. It can get bad, those things, but I don’t think it’s an issue right now.” Los Angeles Daily News

“J.Crossover”, A Jamal Crawford documentary: The Crossover King Is a True Role Model. We had the pleasure of spending our summer in Seattle with the LA Clippers’ Jamal Crawford as he hosted his annual Seattle Pro-Am league. For two months, we captured highlights and conducted interviews with Pro-Am players like Isaiah Thomas & Tony Wroten as well as Seattle basketball legends like Gary Payton and Brandon Roy who talked to us about Jamal and how committed he is to giving back to his community. We also talked to Jamal about his basketball journey that started at home with a yellow Dr J basketball to playing pick-up games with the original Lob City crew of Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp while Crawford was still in high school to the University of Michigan and then to the NBA where he has been breaking records and throwing lobs to Blake Griffin as part of the modern day Lob City.

Then I would like to say thanks to his beautiful wife, Tori, for sharing him with all of his fans and letting him play a game of basketball for the great city of Seattle at the pro-am on this weekend! Most guys would be lucky to play a game of basketball a week after getting married but Jamal’s wife let him and his friends – Chris Paul, Nate Robinson, LaMarcus Aldridge, Matt Barnes, Tony Wroten, Isaiah Thomas, Dejounte Murray, Wale, Will Conroy – have a pick-up game…at midnight…in front of a few thousand people! That’s love. From wife to husband, husband to fans, fans to the city. It was all love in Seattle last night. Just in case you were wondering who won.

"At the root of everything he does and has done, he has always loved basketball," Crawford, a Seattle native, told USA TODAY Sports by phone Tuesday after the sale to Ballmer was announced by the NBA. "I remember one time we went to Spokane (Wash.) for a game out there, a charity game, and he flew up there just to watch some pros play. He's always somebody who's very excited and very motivated, and I'm sure he'll be like that (with the Clippers) times 10. USA Today Sports
This isn’t even fair. The Clippers’ Jamal Crawford played in a Seattle Pro-Am tournament this weekend and absolutely destroyed the competition, dropping 51 points one game and then 53 points the next. He also appeared to be dishing out assists at will. Crawford, at age 34, shows perfectly just how much better NBA players are than your average player. For The Win
