“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. Chris Paul’s team beat Crawford’s 136-129 BallIsLife.com

The agent for 76ers guard Tony Wroten and a spokesman for Michael Jordan denied to ESPN on Friday that Wroten had received an apology from Jordan after one of his Nike brand Air Jordan sneakers fell apart during a loss to the Pacers on March 14 in Philadelphia, contrary to what Wroten told reporters Wednesday. In a tweet on Friday afternoon, Wroten admitted to speaking about Michael Jordan but insisted he was joking: "MJ NEVER called and apologized. I was joking around with a local reporter saying "yea he should call me agent" not knowing I would be quoted," he tweeted. Delaware News Journal

Tony Wroten said he received an apology from Michael Jordan after one of the 76ers guard's Nike basketball shoes fell apart during a loss against the Indiana Pacers on Friday in Philadelphia. "It was more embarrassing than anything," Wroten said Wednesday. "But things happen. I got an apology from Jordan. Yeah. … He called my agent." Wroten, who is known around the NBA for his vast shoe collection, made highlight reels for the wrong reason when the sole tore off the Air Jordan 10 "varsity red" sneaker on his right foot during a fourth-quarter drive to the basket. The shoes were first released in 2005. Delaware News Journal

The 76ers said Tony Wroten's sprained right ankle is better than they originally thought. The sixth man was not available for Monday's 107-99 loss to the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center. Neither was reserve forward Brandon Davies (dislocated right little finger). "He's in an ankle boot and gets the repetitive treatment," coach Brett Brown said of Wroten. "It's been good, just trying to stay on it. But it looks like it could linger for a while." Philadelphia Inquirer
