Towns was 4 years old when Crawford played his first NBA game. That’s 17 years and 1,251 regular-season and playoff games ago, and Crawford vows he’s not nearly done yet. “I feel like 27,” Crawford said. “I feel great, I really do. I take care of myself. I never really get out of shape. I feel I can play another four, five years at this level without a doubt. I feel rejuvenated.”

Crawford will turn 37 in two weeks. But get this: The ageless wonder said he wants to play three or four more seasons. “When you love the game, playing is easy,” Crawford said.
“I don’t see him in the weight room,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers joked. “He plays pickup basketball the entire summer every day. That’s all he does. He’s like the anti-new generation. He just plays basketball. And he looks younger at times because he does. He keeps his skills so sharp by playing and the love of the game.”

Here’s why: Carmelo Anthony’s top choice in any trade, as of late Tuesday night, is to end up with the Houston Rockets, per league sources. Basically, nothing has changed since ESPN’s Adrian Wojanarowski reported over a week ago that Anthony still expected the Knicks to carry out their previous plans to trade him to Houston.
This is significant, because the best offer the Knicks can make in a trade for Irving is a package centered around Anthony. As was reported on Saturday, New York is not interested at this point in including Kristaps Porzingis in any trade for Irving. Some in the Knicks organization would trade Anthony and multiple first-round picks for Irving (though there is not uniform agreement on the idea of dealing multiple first-round picks in any trade at the moment, according to people familiar with the Knicks’ thinking).
As of today, there hasn’t been any further reports on movement the team has at trying to trade for Irving but San Antonio’s guard Patty Mills did weigh in on the rumors of Kyrie to the Spurs. “You never know which ones are true and which ones aren’t.” He’s obviously an All-Star point guard and has been now for a number of years.” “So we just got to work out to see if that actually happens or not.”
But when Jimmy Butler took a shot at his friend Kyrie Irving in Malibu this week, we’re guessing it’s all in good fun. With all the Kyrie rumors going around, we asked Jimmy Buckets if he wanted Irving to join him in Minnesota. Jimmy’s response: “I don’t even know who that is.”
The Lakers decided to bolster their backcourt on Tuesday by retaining a young player they saw encouraging signs from last season. They agreed to a one-year minimum deal with Tyler Ennis, according to league sources familiar with the situation. The Lakers also have a team option on his second year.
