Jamal Crawford

  1. Pretty much everyone wants Jamal Crawford

    Dec 2, 2011, 5:29 PM EDT

    crawford_jamal

    From Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld: On Wednesday, NBA teams were allowed to contact agents for the first time since June 30, the day before the lockout commenced. Executives were given the opportunity to work the phones and express interest in upcoming free agents ten days before those players can start signing with teams. One player…

  2. Wednesday morning one liners: Portland loves Brandon Roy

    Nov 30, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Do not underestimate the love of the Blazers fan base for Brandon Roy, or how that could weight into plans to use the amnesty clause on him. Carlos Boozer thinks the Chicago Bulls can win an NBA title. This year. How desperate are the Knicks for a big man to take a one year deal?…

  3. Monday morning one liners: Coming, going from Europe

    Nov 28, 2011, 11:47 AM EDT

    CBA 11/12 First Round: Guangdong Hongyuan v Zhejiang Chouzhou

    With the end of the NBA lockout, NBA players are exiting Europe and heading back to the good ol’ US of A for an NBA season. What players are on the move are the highlights of our morning one liners. If you read one thing today, make it this very thoughtful look at where the…

  4. The Nets are very excited to make their problems worse in free agency

    Nov 27, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    Deron-Williams

    Here’s the best part about all the games lost and money squandered and damage done to the game in this lockout. All the attempts to curb spending are going to end with a free agency class getting considerably more than it deserves. It has some stars in it, but the best options are either facing…

  5. President Obama to host NBA lockout charity game

    Nov 19, 2011, 10:59 AM EDT

    President Barack Obama

    Sure, we’ve grown a little weary of the NBA lockout charity games. But when the president calls and says he is putting a game together guys are going to lace it up for that one. Well, it’s to help fundraise for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, so maybe we shouldn’t expect to see Spencer Hawes. But…

  6. Today’s overseas roundup: Wade tells his agent to look around

    Nov 18, 2011, 1:17 PM EDT

    Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's 24th Annual Sports Spectacular

    In the days since the NBA labor talks blew up, conversations between NBA players and some overseas teams have picked up. Here’s a roundup of todays rumors and reports, but take it with a grain of salt. • Dwyane Wade has told his agent to start looking into things, reports our own Ira Winderman at…

  7. Jamal Crawford wouldn’t mind playing in Portland

    Nov 7, 2011, 11:45 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    Around the league, players love Jamal Crawford. He is a popular guy in league locker rooms. And he’s a guy who can come off the bench and light it up — he’s not going to be efficient doing that, and he’ll get lost on defense every other time down, but he’ll put up points. That’s…

  8. Video: Highlights from Rip City classic charity game

    Nov 7, 2011, 11:37 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Wesley Matthews

    Another NBA player charity game, another round of Kevin Durant highlights. This was the Rip City game hosted by LaMarcus Aldridge up in Portland and it featured James Harden, Jamal Crawford (with the sweet pass to himself) and a host of other stars. Since this is what will have to pass as NBA basketball for…

  9. Jamal Crawford is in high demand. Why?

    Nov 3, 2011, 7:14 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    More good stuff from Sports Illustrated’s Zach Lowe: Jamal Crawford is a confounding player. He has a fairly high-profile, takes the sort of difficult crunch-time jumpers that make highlight reels and just looks the part of a dynamic NBA player. LeBron James and LaMarcus Aldridge have both recruited Crawford, an impending free agent, via Twitter the…

  10. LeBron James makes fun of his hairline, then tries to recruit Steve Nash and Jamal Crawford

    Oct 27, 2011, 5:54 PM EDT

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    LeBron James has drawn criticism over the past few years for coming across as narcissistic and/or programmed in his public statements, completely turning the city of Cleveland against him with “The Decision,” melting down in the 2010 Eastern Conference Semifinals and the 2011 NBA Finals, and his receding hairline. To his credit, LeBron showed a sense…

  11. Top five unrestricted free agents… where will they go?

    Jul 20, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Free agency is not going to be as much fun this time around. Whenever the owners and players get around to settling the lockout the free agency period will be condensed and hectic. Not that I really miss the drama of Lebron dragging out his decision, but it’s fun to watch things break over a…

  12. NBA players returning to Seattle for exhibition

    Seattle_Sonics

    It was five years ago Tuesday that the Seattle Sonics were sold to the group — Clay Bennett’s The Professional Basketball Club, LLC — that a couple years later would move them to Oklahoma City. Kevin Pelton has a must-read post on his recolections of that day. There are a lot of good basketball fans…

    Jul 17, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    It’s a tough line to walk, believe it or not. Your favorite players leaving to play overseas is definitely news, it affects their health, their conditioning, and lets you know there’s something to keep an eye on, in terms of their production. But with so many players talking about going (pretty much everyone it seems…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Bulls bounce Hawks, will need more from Boozer vs. Heat

    May 13, 2011, 12:01 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Chicago’s Game 6 dominance was in no way a surprise. Though Atlanta has played effective basketball at various points during this series, games like this one fall in line with the initial assessments of the Bulls’ superiority. The Hawks exceeded most projections of their playoff performance, but their postseason success didn’t change the fact that…

  15. NBA Playoffs: Bulls have questions to answer to avoid Game 7

    May 12, 2011, 4:16 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose drives to the net on Atlanta Hawks' Josh Smith during Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    For a Bulls team one win away from going to the conference finals, there seems to be a lot of questions. Not about their defense — we know they can lock it down on that end. But about their ability to score on a good defense. About how far Derrick Rose can carry their offense…

  16. NBA Playoffs: Bulls shut down Hawks in the fourth

    May 10, 2011, 11:34 PM EDT

    Al Horford, Derrick Rose, Marvin Williams

    The Atlanta Hawks gave the Bulls all they could handle for the first three quarters of Game 5. They had a surprising amount of success moving the ball against Chicago’s top-ranked defense, penetrating at will and scoring tough baskets under the rim. They continued to make the league MVP work for everything he got —…

  17. Referee Bennett Salvatore admits he blew call against Bulls

    May 9, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 3: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    It was one of the key moments at the end of game, another nail in the Bulls coffin in Game 4. The Bulls were down 6 and there was 2:30 left when Derrick Rose was behind the three-point line, got defender Jamal Crawford up in the air then leapt into him as he shot to…

  18. NBA Playoffs: Bulls get back to basics, even up series against Hawks

    May 5, 2011, 1:00 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    If Game 1 between the Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks was an aberration — after all, the Hawks converted tough jumpers at an extremely high rate, and rode the high of those makes into a well-executed defense and an improbable victory — then Game 2 was oddly typical. The Bulls are no strangers to offensive…

  19. Derrick Rose injures ankle on final play of game

    May 2, 2011, 11:51 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    Seriously, there is a time — and a reason — to back off a little when the game is over. Soon to be MVP Derrick Rose showed why Tuesday night. Rose rolled his ankle on the final, meaningless possession of the Bulls 103-95 loss to the Hawks Tuesday. With seven seconds left and the Hawks…

  20. Eastern Conference Round 2 Playoff Preview: Chicago vs. Atlanta

    Apr 29, 2011, 2:19 AM EDT

    Bulls Pacers Basketball

    SEASON RECORDS Bulls: 62-20 (No. 1 seed in East) Hawks: 44-38(No. 5 seed) SEASON SERIES Bulls 2-1, all three games took place in a three-week span in March. The Hawks win was by three points at home, the Bulls two wins (one at home, one on the road) were by 18 and 33 points. PLAYOFF…

  21. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta wins ugly, but moves on to the second round

    Apr 29, 2011, 1:23 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    In all honesty, I would never wish repeat viewing of the Atlanta Hawks’ series-clinching victory over the Orlando Magic on my worst enemy. The on-court product was brutal. Neither team could convert any of their shots, the turnovers were many, and the execution on the whole was fairly awful. Atlanta’s 39.2 percent shooting from the…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Hawks look for close out, Magic look for threes

    Apr 28, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic - Game Five

    The dynamics of this series — the dynamics that put the Atlanta up 3-1 and give them to close out Orlando on Thursday night at home in Game 6 — have not changed. Atlanta will largely single-cover Dwight Howard and he will put up impressive numbers. Hedo Turkoglu will stink. Jamal Crawford will again have…

  23. NBA Playoffs: Magic demolish the Hawks, turn the series on its head

    Apr 26, 2011, 10:44 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic - Game Five

    On Tuesday night, the Orlando Magic returned to the comforts of reality, while the Atlanta Hawks experienced a jarring awakening. The first four games in this series weren’t an accurate representation of the performance of either team, but Game 5 shifted the matchup back toward balance, as Orlando thoroughly dominated both ends of the court…

  24. NBA Playoffs: Orlando can create shots or create vacation plans

    Apr 26, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    The reason the Atlanta Hawks are up 3-1 in this series and can close out the Orlando Magic tonight — and the difference between the 2009 Magic that went to the finals and the 2011 Magic about to be eliminated in the first round — was summed up nicely by Stan Van Gundy (via ESPN):…

  25. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta takes Game 4, Orlando is still searching

    Apr 24, 2011, 11:46 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    We’re well past a mere first round scare or claims of an “upset alert.” With an 88-85 win in Game 4, the Atlanta Hawks have pushed the fourth-seeded Orlando Magic to the very edge of their playoff lives, a considerable achievement considering the regular season profiles of both teams. The Magic were the league’s fourth…
