Simple question, who do you think deserves be a starter on their team and who would you take if you were building a new team....

Neither... Both are great in their roles

Jamaal Crawford.

Crawford. Better PER, ppg, shooting percentage, three point percentage and free throw percentage. Both are good 6th man players though.

Neither need to start. Craw is better.

Jr is a much better defender than Crawford. However, crawfords ability to play pg over stretches is the deal breaker

crawford is a pure scorer. but that's pretty much it. yeah, he's got handle and a little playmaker ability because of his scoring... but that's it.

Jr defends, rebounds and passes better.

to me, both are best as 6th men. Jr has talent, but I dont think he could be harden as a starter.

still, Jr would be s better starter than. crawford because he is more well rounded... and that's sad.

Neither need to start, but JR plays tough D and brings more intangible play so I think he's more equipped for a starting gig. Jamal is probably the better player but its close, like the dude above me said its JR's hustle and D along with his athleticism tradeoff to Jamal's better offensive game and brain.

I do think JR has potential to be the better player, whether he can reach that plateau, and we've seen it for two separate long stretches this year, without the extreme low stretches to go with it, remains to be seen. Jamal seems to have the ability to shake off a bad game way better than JR. JR falls into long slumps, but he has shown the uncanny ability to hit the biggest shot of the night at the end of some of his worst overall games.
