Warner Bros. Discovery Sports has announced that Jamal Crawford – one of the NBA’s most highly-regarded playmakers – has agreed to a multiyear deal which will see the three-time Kia NBA Sixth Man of the Year featured as an NBA analyst across TNT, NBA TV and social media platforms. As part of his new role, Crawford will serve as a regular studio analyst for NBA on TNT Tuesday appearing alongside Shaquille O’Neal, Candace Parker and Adam Lefkoe. The NBA on TNT Tuesday franchise, a two-time Sports Emmy winner for outstanding interactive experience (original programming), returns weekly starting in January.
“I’ve never been jaded,” Crawford said on The Crossover podcast, in his first extensive interview since joining Turner Sports full time. The network made the hiring official on Thursday. “Like, Tupac wore Shaq’s jersey! Biggy Smalls wore Shaq’s jersey! Michael Jackson, in his apartment in New York, had a life-size cut out of Shaq! Like Shaq’s unbelievable. And I’ve never, ever, ever been jaded by that.”
He added: “I’m still sitting there like, ‘Dang, that’s Shaq.’ Or, ‘Dang, that’s Charles (Barkley).’ Or, ‘Dang, that’s Kenny (Smith).’ Or, ‘That’s Ernie (Johnson) right there.’ Like, I’m such a student and a fan of the game. And I just have a certain level of regard, respect, for these guys that came before me. That will never leave. The kid in me will always be there.”
