Jamal Crawford

Anyone who watched Jamal Crawford play high school basketball in the Pacific Northwest knew early on what the rest of the country would soon learn; that he could flat-out play. After bursting onto the national scene at the University of Michigan, Jamal declared early for the NBA draft in 2000 where he was picked 8th overall by Cleveland and acquired by the Chicago Bulls in a draft-day trade. Known for his ankle-breaking crossover, deft passing, and smooth shooting Jamal became one of the most versatile and dangerous players in the league. Along with being known as one of the greatest "6th Man” ever in the NBA he currently holds the record for the most four-point plays. He is the only player to receive the "6th Man" award three times. Throughout his 19 years of professional basketball, he has played for 8 NBA franchises: Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks, Portland Trailblazers, Los Angeles Clippers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns. He is among the oldest players to score over 50 points in a game. He has scored over 10,000 career points off the bench. Today, Jamal is one of the most inspirational mentors to aspiring young players in the PNW through his “Crawsover League” and he is a staple in the community for his generosity.
