We can go on and on about how 40-year old Vince Carter is still showing flashes of Vinsanity while averaging 8 points a game for the Grizzlies this year; It’s impressive and the 8x NBA All-Star is deserving of the praise. But have you really looked at what 37-year old Jamal Crawford has consistently been doing all season long? The never-been-an-All-Star is averaging 12 points in his 17th season and I can’t say he shows flashes of being JCrossover, the handles king, because he consistently drops just as many defenders and generates just as many ooh’s and aah’s now as he did a decade and almost two decades ago.
On Saturday night, he generated a lot of ooh’s and aah’s with a dribbling exhibition against the Jazz, while scoring a game-high 28 points on 8 of 12 shooting in just 25 minutes; 17 of those 28 came in the final quarter of the Clippers’ win.
“We always say he’s got his dancing shoes on when he gets moving like that,” Chris Paul said of Crawford’s performance.
“It’s the way I’m handling the ball.” Said Crawford, who had 14th 20+ game of the season. “If I’m kind of skipping, you can tell I’m locked in.”
