An avowed gym rat, Crawford is famous for his year-round participation in pick-up games. Though he has a famously slick handle—his Twitter handle is @JCrossover—he has said he never did ball-handling drills and didn’t practice his shot much until 2012. A Seattle native, he is still living there with his family. A February trip with his 10-year-old son and nephew to a Shoot 360 gym in nearby Kirkland prompted him to become an investor in the company. Fellow NBA veterans Fred Jones and Rodney Stuckey already own and operate their own Shoot 360 gyms, which use shot-tracking technology and interactive video interfaces to engage fans in ball-handling and passing drills.
Glenn Robinson III isn’t the only Indiana Pacers player to win the NBA dunk contest. In fact, Fred Jones won in 2004, and Darnell Hillman won in 1977. But something was different about the 1977 contest. Hillman never received his trophy … not until Wednesday night, at least. While Hillman and Fred Jones were on hand to celebrate Robinson’s recent win, the Pacers made sure Hillman got his trophy as well. The best part is Hillman was completely surprised by the gesture from the Pacers.
Fred Jones, former NBA player and All-Star Slam Dunk Champion, said in a radio interview on 750-AM on Monday that he might consider coaching one day, but would rule out trying to reach the professionals. “NBA players don’t want coaching,” he said Monday, “and I know that. Definitely college. I want to be there every day. I want to grow boys into men. I want them around my family. I want that whole college experience to help guys pursue their dreams and turn them into grown men.”
The site is exclusively for current and former NBA players created with the sole purpose of keeping players in contact with one another. The site also allows players to showcase their businesses, promote charity events, basketball camps and tons more. “I got the idea traveling around the country and running into players,” Jones told CSNNW.com. “A lot of times we would see one another and say, ‘Hey, I didn’t know you were in town. I got this charity event going and I would have liked for you to attend it if I knew you were in town.’ Player Population will keep guys connected.”
Jones, 34, says 65 players have signed up thus far, with hopes of getting the entire league involved. He’s also hopeful that he’ll get the NBA Player’s Association on board, having met with Vice President and Secretary- Treasurer of the Player’s Association Jerry Stackhouse and James Jones. Stackhouse and James Jones were impressed with Jones’ website and presentation and are backing it with plans to present it to President Derek Fisher. Jones is confident that Player Population will eliminate misinterpretation of vital and key information that come out of player meetings.
