When is it no longer a fluke but rather the fact that he's on a very dangerous team and is a perfect fit? Averaging 23 ppg this year on more than 51 percent shooting from the field off the bench after 6 games. He's singlehandedly outscored the opposing teams ENTIRE bench in 3 games this year.

Who said he's a fluke? He's always put up a lot of points (wish LAL had him -- but then again he'd probably suck for us). Impressive FG% though but with his style of play that percentage won't last very long.

Yeah his fg% will drop. Kobe's shooting 56% from the field and 43% from 3. Numbers typically even out over the course of a season.

Crawford is playing great though. Odom looks pretty bad :(

Jamal Crawford is really good at dribbling the basketball. When he dribbles the ball, Jamal Crawford does a move called a crossover very well. When he does the crossover he makes his defender think he is going one way, but in all actuality, Jamal Crawford goes the other way. His crossover dribble basketball move works a lot of the time, but not all the time.

I agree it will drop into mid 40's. Tons of people though criticized the signing and brought up last year. I told them (even had to explain to Clippers fans at times) that Crawford has never really been in a good situation outside of Atlanta when he won 6th man.

Playing with the weapons he does now opens up the floor for him. His efficiency has a chance to be a career best due to the fact that the Clippers have CP3 creating for him and Griffin drawing doubles.

Odom looks like a pathetic sack of crap. Good news is he's a free agent and 8 mill coming off the books this summer for the team.

Yeah I think Crawford wins 6th man of the year. He's playing great so far, but at the same time it's such a small sample size. We'll see what happens... although he is my pick. Wanted him on the Lakers for a long long time.

Odom somehow looks worse than when he was with Dallas. I don't even know if he wants to play basketball anymore.

Either way, you guys have a solid squad, hope Blake gets healthy. Good luck this season Clippersfan :cheers:

Yea Odom is just done IMO. I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt and was happy after his play in the season opener but when Turiaf and Hollins outplay you every game you know it's time to retire. Good luck to you as well.

I explained it in the OJ Mayo thread... I love Mayo and Crawford... but when homer fans start creating threads like this it makes me want to hate on the player. Let their work do the talking. It's not needed for anyone to hype them more.

To me, it's just a sign of insecurity that you need reassurance from other people that Crawford will continue to dominate the way he is doing all season long. You are only setting yourself up for disappointment.

When the Clippers signed him I thought it was a boom or bust signing. The closer it got to the season I started to think...man we got J-Crossover and all we need him to do is dribble and shoot, and pass if he wants to. Which sometimes he does. This is the perfect role for him. I think he will continue to play at this level. He obviously won't shoot over 50% but I'd be surprised if he shoots under 44%. I think he has a good chance to have his best season as far as efficiency goes.

I started thinking this a while ago. Started a thread in the Clipper forum about him...where a thread like this belongs. I don't blame CF86 for only posting here since there is no Clippers forum, but c'mon CF...help me out man!! Here's the thread I made.

I also remember how everyone dissed the Clippers for the 4 year contract. Now it looks like possibly the best contract in the league. Last 2 years are partially guaranteed for $1.5 mil in case he gets hurt or loses his game. He got in the best shape of his career because he thought it was first time he needed to work on his game! That was after he got paid!! He looks like he has 4 years left easily! He's locked up 3 more year after this one for $5.5 mil per. Great Fn contract!!

has been my fav player along with melo and kobe for like 8 years actually watched him at michgan. He is nasty player that has had bad luck as far as situations he has been in. Was asked to do to much and didnt have good teams around him in Chi and NY. In ATL he was a great 6th man but if u take joe johnson of that team and start Jamal He would avg 25 a game sorrounded by great finishers. Now he got the 6th man rep so that all he will be. I have always said he is about 20lbs away from being a superstar and is the most cold blooded player in the nba who is not a superstar

He's a very good player coming off the bench, but to the OP, if you really believe that anyone thought Jamal Crawford being an impactful player was a fluke, then you haven't been reading through this forum often.

Considering they lacked versatility off their bench, I think Odom is a better fit for them than Mo, but I agree with you that Ryan Hollins and Ronnie Turiaf are downgrades from Kenyon Martin and Reggie Evans. The physicality the Clippers got from those two guys in particular is what got them over the hump last year in Round 1, but we'll see. The bench is deeper this year though.

Heres hoping the other 2 gambles pay off, Odom hasn't but Craw has been brilliant. All Grant Hill has to do is not suck or if Billups plays well Id be willing to play small with Craw at the 3, whatever it takes to get Butler off the floor.

11-09-2012, 02:28 PM
I'm not sure i've heard anyone say he was a fluke. Crawford has been a very good 6th man for a long time. Any team can value that. Obviously the %'s wont be that high all season, but he will defintily have a impact

UHHHH WTF is this supposed to mean? Crawford replaced Mo in the lineup. Odom and Mo are not related at all other than they were traded for each other. Crawford replaced Mo, Grant Hill and Barnes replaced Young and Odom, Tufiaf and Hollins are replacing Martin and Evans. Martin and Evans had HUGE holes in the their games(FT shooting, offense) and while Odom is struggling now I will still take our bigs over last years. So yea just a bad and uninformed post all the way around.

Really wished he woulda signed with NYK before last year when we was deciding between the Blazers and Knicks. I'm happy with JR's defense, assists and board production this year, but he still has poor shot selection. While Jamal has been compared to JR, he seems to have matured over the years.
