It was a scene that got lost in the madness that was the Clippers-Thunder Game 5 finish. With 30 seconds left in the game up four and the Los Angeles Clippers needing a bucket to seal a Game 5 win, Jamal Crawford waved off Chris Paul. The Clippers' starting point guard had walked out to the halfcourt line where Crawford stood and signaled his hunger for the ball by holding up his hands toward the reigning Sixth Man of the Year.....

He did miss a layup though, but we shouldn't dwell on the past, PLEASE, I've been trying to get over the loss by not looking at any breakdowns, analysis, video, articles so that wretched thing can be purged out of my system. Stop trying to find someone to blame, there's always someone to blame, won't bring the game back, won't give us the win Tonight. So let's focus on tonight. ....

Crawford is more than a willing distributor as he was the one who found a streaking Collision both times for layups in to close game 4. What is this guy talking about? the last 3 minutes Clippers possessions 2:58 Chris Paul misses 14-foot two point jumper 101-93 2:39 Chris Paul misses 17-foot jumper 101-93 2:21 DeAndre Jordan offensive foul (Russell Westbrook draws the foul) 101-95 2:21 DeAndre Jordan turnover 101-95 1:31....

There were shots early in the clock that were bad shots. That's just a fact and that's part of his player profile. High talent but low IQ ....

I swear Crawford gets so much hate its like he is our Westbrook. There have been times that I wanted to bench him because he was cold but he is just as much part of the team success as everyone else if not most in certain games. ....

This is the Crawford experience. The veteran has an uncanny ability to hit tough shots, but miss the easy ones. He's the guy who will fix your car in a pinch and then lose your keys.
HAHAHA! You wouldn't want him to make it too easy now, would you? ....

Disagree with the article. Crawford is a scorer. We bring him in to score. Yeah, he takes some bad shots but he also makes some amazing shots. I would take this guy on my team any day of the week. ....

Its human nature especially when it come to Crawford some people tend to remember the one bad play and ignore the 5 previous plays. Every playoff game takes on a life of its....

I feel like we get to content with letting JC create his own shots all the time instead of running him off screens to get him started. Not sure if that's accurate but just an opinion. ....

and I posted the timelines so there is the what you see and what the actual facts are ' Our last 8 possessions Jamal took 2 shots both were as the shot clock expired. One was a three and one was a layup attempt. I posted those above so exactly which ones were you talking about that was early in the clock. If you want to go back further at the 4:13....

I wouldn't want him jacking like that as a starter, but he comes off the bench to get buckets. He's in the right role for his skillset. ....

They used to say the same thing about Kobe. And he has five rings. Crawford, for a sixth man, is great. ....

At the end of the 3rd qtr crawford made like 10 straight pts including a 4 pt play. Crawford has made so many critical shots to spark runs, and close gaps in the 4th qtr only a retarded journalist who barely watches the clippers would even insinuate garbage about Crawford. The reality is his style of play does make you cringe when he takes crazy shots and misses badly, but he also makes those shots 41% of the time. Crawford for mvp. ....

I was going to say "I wouldn't say he isn't willing as a passer, he just get's so happy with scoring that he doesn't think about it", but maybe that sort of describes not being too willing, because he's a very capable distributor, but not nearly as willing to use that part of his game consistently. It's a lot about consistency in the NBA, which is why we know he's a capable distributor because he will have nights when he....

It's definitely a catch 22 with him. When his shots aren't falling he is of a negative value. Iso like he does really stagnates out offense, I hate when Cp3 does the same thing ....

Isolation in itself isn't bad, it is how you set up isolation, because it seems like because of the criticism of over-reliance on iso, fans have sort of made this conclusion that iso in itself is bad. It isn't, it is when you isolate,....

By the time Jamal starts ISO the offense has usually already stagnated. The bench never looks like it has an offensive flow. Darren and Jamal ISO pretty much we have come to depend on for bench scoring. ....

With Jamal per game you can always count on 2-3 bricks and 1-2 Handling TOs but you live with that because he is our top 3rd scorer and the only wing that can break down the defense and get into the paint and until we get a legitimate scoring wing there is nothing to complain about ....

Jamal is a tough choice. The guy will be 35 next year, which means he could decline dramatically at anytime. You love him cause he is that instant offense off the bench who can create his own shot. He has always given our bench credibility because of his ability to score. Without him, we would be in dire need of offense. But the guy is 35, is prone to take bad shots and plays no defense. This is a tough....

I like Jamal, he seems down to Earth and humble, and he is fun to watch sometimes (in the regular season). But as I've said, he's simply a regular-season player, and his playoff performances prove it. I don't see how we ever win a championship when the highest usage rate belongs to a bench player with bad shot selection, no defense, no rebounding, and a refusal to pass the ball. His fancy dribbling and heat-check shots don't....

Thanks entirely to elite bigs who were able to cancel out his no-shame chucking. As the first option, Kobrick struggled to even make the playoffs. You're always better off with team players than with iso chuckers. ....
