“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

Recent reports and quotes have indicated Jamal Crawford is looking for a contract extension this summer. “Our intention is to get an extension with the Clippers or anywhere else that he may be traded based on the fact that he’s undervalued for the production he’s providing,” his agent Andy Miller told Yahoo Sports on Wednesday night. Unfortunately, Crawford will not be eligible for an extension until July 2015. Crawford signed his original four year, $21.35 million pact in July of 2012. Under Article VII, Section 7(a)(1) of the CBA, “a Player Contract covering a term of four (4), five (5) or six (6)* Seasons may be extended no sooner than the third anniversary of the signing of the Contract.” Basketball Insiders

As the Los Angeles Clippers propose guard Jamal Crawford in possible trade scenarios, the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year has a message for the Clippers and potential future teams: Wherever Crawford's playing, he wants a contract extension next summer. "Our intention is to get an extension with the Clippers or anywhere else that he may be traded based on the fact that he's undervalued for the production he's providing," his agent Andy Miller told Yahoo Sports on Wednesday night. Yahoo! Sports

Crawford has two years, $11 million left on his deal, including a team option for the 2015-16 season. Crawford is eligible for an extension in the summer of 2015, and believes he's out-performed his deal. Crawford had a tremendously productive season for the Clippers, averaging 18.6 points in 30 minutes per game on his way to his second Sixth Man of the Year award in four seasons. Yahoo! Sports

Interestingly, the two know each other. Wilcox played college ball at University of Washington, and Crawford is from Seattle. “He’s up in Seattle every summer, so he’s been in a lot of open gyms and a lot of runs. I’ve competed against him and been around guys who are really close with him, so I know we’ll probably be able to mesh a little bit since we’ve spent some summers together up in Seattle and going against each other. Hopefully, he’ll take me under his wing and show me the ropes since I went to school in Seattle and he’s from that area. … I think he’ll help me take some strides,” Wilcox said.

The Clippers could consider sending Griffin and Jared Dudley or Griffin and Matt Barnes to Miami to get James. The Clippers wouldn’t mind trading DeAndre Jordan, Jamal Crawford and either Barnes or Dudley to the Heat for James, but the team knows that would most likely be hard to do. Los Angeles Times
