Video: Jamal Crawford breaks Rudy Gay’s ankles

Nov 1, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

There were plenty of highlights from the first big night of games in the NBA, but this is my favorite.

Jamal Crawford has long had one of the better crossovers in the NBA and if you think he’s lost his touch, I think you should go ask Rudy Gay. Although, this was more of a really sweet hesitation move.

Crawford dropped 29 and was a key reason the Clippers opened their season with a win. Which is nice to see one team in Los Angeles doing.

    Kurt, that wasn’t a crossover that got Rudy’s ankles to behave as if they were in quicksand. It was a hesitation dribble. there is a difference in crossover and hesitation dribble. crossover=left to right or vice versa. hesitation=quick pause in dribble rhythm. isn’t this common knowledge? smh

      When executed properly, the result of each move is virtually the same. It cripples the defender by making a double move with the ball. You can vice versa all you want.

    I didn’t see Crawford do anything to Gay. It looked like Rudy’s left ankle didn’t fully plant and he rolled it.

    *unimpressed*

    Is it just me, or is the use of the non-word “meh” extremely annoying to most people? I assume it is being used to convey ambivalence, or maybe to indicate that a person is unimpressed. Why take the time to post if that’s the case?

    I’m sure at least one person will follow this comment with a reply of meh just to annoy me further, lol.

      Meh, haha. It might just be you. It’s not that big of a deal. Just expected a crazy crossover and got something subpar. Saw 1st comment and it accurately depicted how I felt, meh. I took the 3 seconds of my time to comment how I felt about the video. That is all.

    Kurt, you correct your mistakes without making a correction notation at the end of the article and when I point out your lack of journalistic integrity, you remove my comment. You have no shame dude. Everyone makes mistakes, but at least if make a notation at the end of the article if you go back and correct your mistakes. it’s called integrity.
