At 9am today, 36 year old Jamal Crawford became the first player to ever win the NBA 6th Man of the Year award for a 3rd time (he was 3rd in voting last season) and the oldest to win the award. The previous record for oldest belonged to none other than…Jamal Crawford at age 34!
No stranger to breaking his own records, which rarely get enough credit, Jamal averaged 14.2 points, 2.3 assists, 1.8 boards while adding to his game-winner list (15) and untouchable 4-point play record (47). He had some memorable performances this season, like he when he scored 16 of his 32 in the 4th vs the Magic and when he capped off a 30 point night against the Jazz with a game-winning buzzer beater in OT. And although his 117 3-pointers is his lowest in 5 seasons, it still was enough to push him to 7th on the all-time 3s list, trailing Vince Carter by just 4. Don’t be surprise when it’s all said and done for Crawford that will be celebrating him being 3rd or 4th on this list.
To celebrate Crawford’s latest accomplishment, here’s our 1-hour documentary/interview with him from 2014, followed by a few of my favorite performances from 1 of only 3 people in NBA history to score 50+ on 3 different teams.
