The LA Clippers welcomed back one of their most beloved players, Jamal Crawford, on Wednesday night with a tribute that will sure send some feels to your heart.
Jamal Crawford is someone who brings excitement night in and night out. The way he can dribble the ball for sure brings uncertainty. There are highlight reels on YouTube of him dribbling the ball and literally (not literally) breaking ankles. He came back to Staples Center to face his old team for the first time on Wednesday night and it was special to have him back in a place he called home for five years.
Jamal Crawford signed with the Clippers in the offseason of 2012, moving on from a Portland team that didn’t pan out the way both wanted. The Clippers added Jamal at the height of Lob City and he helped bring space and fourth quarter scoring.
Jamal is someone that you could always count on in the clutch to hit tough shots. He is a person that can manifest offense with the flick of the wrist, including a cross over that rivals Allen Iverson’s. He is very special player that has given Clipper fans so much to be happy and thankful for.
