    Default Jamal Crawford anybody?

    The guy has been killing it on the playoffs scoring 24ppg 3.5apg, today he made the game winning shot to put Atlanta 2-1 againts Orlando, the guy is known for been clutch and hit big shots, he can also play point guard when need it, should the Pacers try to get him during the off season? how much should the Pacers pay for him?

    Note:I would like for him to be our 6th man and possible start we need it.

    Here are some videos of him:

    I prefer him over Jason Richardson any day. I would not mind Crawford on the Pacers at all.

    He can start for 2 years or so until Paul George is ready to take over, and then he can become a back-up wing. He has great handles, a great shot, and he can create for himself along with decent creating for others too.

    He can also, in a way, be that closer. I have a feeling that if we gave him the green light at the 2 he would flourish, which in turn would greatly help Danny as he would play off the ball and get easier looks.

    He wouldn't mess up on court chemistry either as he has versatility, as in he can effectively play either on or off the ball.

    Plus, in my opinion he fits the bill perfectly as a "Smash mouth" guy.

    I've always been a big Crawford fan. The only downside is that he is a little streaky, having the ability to get 45343584 pts or go 0-20 haha. Anybody remember the game he lit Wade up for 52 pts?

    PS wtf kind of music is that on the mixtape vid? LOL

    I like him. Would be an excellent 6th man. Find a starting SG (Mayo or whoever) and move Paul George to SF off the bench and that would be an awesome wing combination.

    If the price is right, Jamal would be a welcomed addition IMO.

    As long as he is willing to take a pay cut he can come here, but if he is expecting 10+ hell no.

    I would rather sign Dunleavy to a smaller contract, and save that money for other players in 2011 or 2012.

    There is no need to take that kind of risk on a streaky 31-year-old.

    He had a great game today including the game winner for you all who didn't watch the game:



    Is this not exactly what we've needed this series? We need a guy who can close and create for himself off the bounce with 6 or so seconds on the clock when a good defensive team reads and defends a play well. Not trying to hype this guy up but I really think that he is the hidden gem in free agency. I can honestly say that if he gets the green light, I think he could average 20 points per game and 3 assists for us next year barring injury or very significant decline in quickness.

    What would you be willing to pay for him? 30/4? 25/3? I think he is going to make like 7mil or 8mil at least.

    I agree, but why would we want to waste our money on Jamaal?

    I think we all know he isn't going to settle for a small contract.

    Jamal's game 3 winner against the Magic was just as bad of a shot as the our last shot was. He was just lucky enough to bank it in. He wasn't playing against the Bull's defense either.

    The grass always looks greener on the other side. It would not take long to see Crawford is a streaky chucker, always has been. That's why he's been on so many different teams, they get tried of it and look for more consistency.

    The difference is, Jamal Crawford has hit insane shots his entire career. I don't want to overhype him, but if you're going to take that kind of a shot, he's one of the few people you actually expect to hit them on occasion. Also, notice that in the video above, they mention he has the most 4 point plays in league history. The dude can kill you from the perimeter. He can also attack the basket decently.

    I'm not trying to sell him as some golden god, but he would certainly help out with our offensive issues. Significantly.

    They asked him about the shot and he said that that area is his sweet spot, it wasn't a lucky shot they guy has done it from there many times, regarding the team switching, he was unlucky enough to be on two teams that decided to go into rebuilding mode and cut cost while he was there.

    He did score like 50 points in his Warriors debut.

    That stood out to me.

    Everytime i see Crawford he's putting a dagger in someones heart. I know when the Pacers play the Hawks hes the guy that's most aggrivating. that being said 31 is kind of old.

    Not for a shooter, Ray Allen is 35 and I would trade for him any day.

    No thanks. He has shown the ability to be an inefficient scorer in his career and being on the wrong side of 30, I think his production will only go down.

    if we were a true contender like dallas, miami, san antonio, okc, boston, orlando etc, yea i'd go for crawford in a heartbeat. but that fact remains, we need a lot more pieces than 31yo jamal crawford to reach elite status. i'd prefer to hold off giving someone like crawford a decently sized contract until we make sure we have hibbert, george, and collison signed long term, one. and two, have found a legitimate go-to player to build around long-term. ideally, we maintain our cap flexibility throughout the summer to use via trades or to go after someone like eric gordon in the much better 2012 free agency class. imo, crawford could get us to a 4 seed, but would ultimately hurt our chances to reach elite status.
