When this happened, I really hope Caron Butler said something like, “In your face … yours too.” I don’t think that went down, but it would be pretty righteous if it did.

When you are talking notorious chuckers in today’s NBA, four names come up time and time again: Kobe Bryant, Nick Young, J.R. Smith and Jamal Crawford. And basically all of them don’t think they’re actually chuckers, even if they back that up with irrefutable gunner logic. Jamal Crawford is no different.
“I honestly have a conscience,” the soft-spoken Crawford said in reference to his reputation as a player who has never encountered a shot he didn’t like. “But once I miss one, I believe the next one is going in. I’ve shot that shot a million times and I believe it’s going in.”
I love this. No one wants to be known as a ballhog, but all these guys who refute their reputation with things only ballhogs would say. Here, Jamal Crawford is basically saying, “I really do give careful consideration to my shots, but if I miss I’m pretty sure the next one is going in because I shoot all the time.” This is especially funny when you consider Jamal hadn’t practiced shooting before this summer, which means the bulk of those “million times” came during games. That just means this makes more sense.
But hey, Jamal Crawford did practice this summer and he’s been destroying since arriving in Los Angeles, so if he “honestly [has] a conscience” that keeps telling him to shoot and make it, then I think the Clippers are fine with that. Besides, that little voice in his head is the exact same one that always encourages Jamal to dribble through someone’s legs, and we definitely don’t want to shut that up, do we?

This is the NBA’s newest ad, “Unbelievable is BIG,” and this is part of it’s world premiere. The spot is directed by Spike Lee and it’s kind of awesome. Maybe it’s because Mike Conley is the perfect person to watch have flailing legs since he’s quite frenetic while defending or because Chris Paul is actually kind of good at disappearing (just ask Kobe), but I like it.
And I can’t wait for the sequel, where we find out all the other Clippers also have superpowers. Sure, you know about Blake Griffin’s jet powered legs, but did you realize DeAndre Jordan really can throw his farts? You’ll have to tune in to find out but SPOILER ALERT it’s 100 percent true.

As Stephen Jackson would maybe say but probably not, NBA players are bout dis shoe life. Meaning they have lots of shoes, but I’m sure you get what I was trying to say. NBA players have lots of shoes, OK? New ones for all their games, a bunch of pairs at home to take pictures of, near a Sharpie to be signed and given away — just shoes galore.
But not Jamal Crawford. He’s been wearing one pair of Nike Hyperdunks the entire season and they’re killing his feet. From the Los Angeles Daily News:
Crawford was injured while making a move during the first half of the Clippers’ loss Tuesday to the Denver Nuggets. He played the next night against the Warriors only because teammate Caron Butler missed the game for personal reasons.
An old pair of shoes, with the padding and support past its expiration date, was to blame, according to Crawford. Normally, he wears one pair throughout the season for home games, another for road games and a third pair for practices. This season, he stuck with one pair.
And it cost him.
When a group of reporters approached him to ask before Saturday’s game if he had a new pair which he had taken a new pair out of one of the boxes and boxes a shoe company supplied to him, Crawford said, “Yes, I do,” and held up a shiny new pair.
“I have a little plate in there, too, to keep it stable,” said Crawford.
People ask me all the time, “Why do you have so many shoes?” Now I finally have a good answer — because Jamal Crawford hurt his foot one time. Thanks Jamal, for making sense of my life.
And hey, this might be the ultimate case of a squeaky wheel getting the grease. All it took was one little foot injury for him to get some new shoesies. Pretty smart plan, even if it did cost him a couple of games and he probably could have afforded a second pair. But now he’s got new shoes and a foot that isn’t totally destroyed, so it’s a best of both worlds kind of thing. All the better to dribble between your legs.

Well, it looks like we all have a new favorite NBA holiday video. I’m not sure if the Clippers meant for people to laugh at how bad this is, but that’s what’s happening. I mean, you can literally make something like this online for free and it will be just as good/bad. Nice work, Clips.
