Shooting guard Jamal Crawford believes his game is still improving, and when you watch his play on the court it is tough to argue about it.
“It’s weird, but I feel like I’m still getting better,” Crawford said to Basketball Insiders’ writer Alex Kennedy. “Now that I’m 14 years in, some people have been like, ‘Why are you still playing?’ A lot of guys start to plateau at that point or start to [decline], but I feel like I’m still getting better. I love the game of basketball. I’m entrenched in it every single day whether I’m playing it or watching it or talking basketball. For me, it’s still fun. It’s fun to work and see yourself get better. For me, I feel like I can do this for a very long time; God willing, no major injuries.”
This bodes well for the Los Angeles Clippers, and we will have to see what kind of minutes Crawford gets come playoff time. His shooting and ball handling both can help them down the stretch, but the main issue with keeping him out on the floor is because of his defensive deficiencies. We will have to settle with watching Chris Paul at the All Star, but you can bet that is enough for me. Keep an eye out for two more tonight folks; thanks as always.
