HoopsHype Jamal Crawford rumors

December 20, 2014 Updates

Jamal Crawford hears the chatter. While some athletes say they tune out trade rumors or speculation, particularly when it involves themselves, Crawford hears it but doesn’t stress about it. “I’m done worrying,” said Crawford, who’s on his sixth different team in 14-plus NBA seasons. “I’ve proven myself, honestly, over the course of time…Me personally, I’m fine. I can play basketball anywhere, so I’m not worried about it.” NBA.com

If the Clippers make a trade or bring in a free agent such as Ray Allen, Crawford said he’d understand and he’d welcome the addition. That could mean fewer minutes for him. It could even mean he gets dealt. But he’s not sweating it. “I’ve been in trade rumors ever since I’ve been here, which is the weirdest thing,” Crawford said. “But that’s part of the business, honestly. I can play wherever. I can play here, I would love to play here. But if not, if something happens, you move on and do what you’ve got to do.” NBA.com

If it’s up to him, though, he’s happy where he is and would prefer to stay with the Clippers. “I love it here,” Crawford said. “I signed to come here. My family’s very comfortable here. It’s weird because most people, you think L.A., they think bright lights. I’m not here for commercials or going out. I enjoy my teammates, I enjoy the coaching staff, I enjoy the fans and the organization, but I do understand it’s a business. If something were to happen, no hard feelings and you move on.” NBA.com

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.
