Jamal Crawford, veteran presence, friend, big brother, professional bucket-getter

Jamal Crawford has been around the block more than a few times but it still feels like the universe is selling his NBA experience short.

“I turned 20 twice, so I don’t know what 40 is feeling like,” he’s joked, but within that joke there is some truth (as there always is in the best jokes).

After all, he entered the league as a rookie when Grizzlies games were still being hosted in Vancouver, the Los Angeles Lakers were looking for the second ring of their eventual three-peat, George W. Bush and Al Gore were duking it out to see who’d be the 43rd President of the United States, Shaggy was still a thing in the billboards, and Stephon Marbury was a New Jersey Net.
