I don’t know if he found the fountain of youth or made a deal with the devil but Jamal Crawford is turning 36 in a couple of weeks and is still playing like a man looking forward to signing another multi-year contract after his current deal is up in two more seasons.
On Saturday night, the man with so many random NBA records scored 25 points in 25 minutes in a win against his first team in the NBA – the Chicago Bulls. It was his 179th career 20-point game off the bench (2nd most in NBA history) for the 3x NBA 6th Man of the year. The 25-point performance was surprisingly the only one from the game, which did feature Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul.
Speaking of CP3, he had an amusing moment when he videobombed Jamal’s postgame interview to wish his Mom a happy birthday.
And as a birthday gift to myself today, I’m going to re-watch my favorite interview and video I’ve ever done.
