Rivers was then asked the million-dollar question: Is it possible Crawford may not return at all this season? “There’s a chance,” said Rivers, whose team today at 12:30 p.m. plays host to the New Orleans Pelicans. “You know, I don’t know right now because he’s improved, but not enough, I can tell you that. He’s nowhere near, in my opinion, playing. So we just have to hope he gets better.” Daily Breeze

Watching from a distance were Dwyane Wade, who was 13 at the time, and Jamal Crawford, 14. They were both at home—Wade in Chicago with his stepbrothers and Crawford with a friend in Los Angeles. "My brother was sitting in the kitchen with his small 12-inch TV watching all the coverage, [Jordan] pulling up in a Ferrari," said Wade, who's a good friend of the Hall of Famer and was an endorser of his company at one point. "It was just a cool moment. It's crazy that it was 20 years ago. I was my son, Zaire's, age now. "When he came back, it was just the excitement that we got the opportunity to witness him more. Being a kid in the community that I grew up in, it was big to have that confidence, to walk around with that kind of swagger. You don't understand the impact that the Bulls, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, those guys had on me as a young kid. They were the reason that I had a dream, a hope that I can be that one day."

“I think, God willing, if I have no major injuries or anything, I want to keep playing for five more years,” Crawford said. “It’s weird because I’ve said ‘five more years’ for two years now, but I still feel like I can do that. So yeah, I think five more seasons. I still want to be playing at a high level, though. But honestly, it’s crazy, I still feel like I’m getting better and finding ways to keep learning about the game and continuing to challenge myself with things to get better at. I don’t know, but hopefully five more years. I’ve said that for two years now, so we’ll see.” Basketball Insiders

When asked if he was relieved he wasn't traded, Crawford shrugged his shoulders and said: "It is what it is." Whether the Clippers were thinking about dealing Crawford -- the NBA's reigning sixth man of the year - or not doesn't seem to matter. It's clear by things Crawford said and his mannerisms that his name being involved affected him. "I have no idea (if it was realistic)," Crawford said of a possible trade. "I know as much as you do. You think it was real?" FoxSports.com

Ben Bolch: Have been told Clippers would be hesitant to make any trade involving Jamal Crawford unless it would clearly improve the team. You have to think Arron Afflalo or Wilson Chandler would be a push at best if it meant giving up Jamal Crawford, so trade seems unlikely. Twitter @latbbolch
