Now Jordan is tweeting his December stats....perfect. While I think he's gotten the shaft to some degree (mainly cause other guys like Seraphin continue to get PT), he's just a clown and needs to go....the sooner the better. This team doesn't need Jordan going to twitter to air his grievances, especially with their improved play. He didnt complain when his #s were solid but we lost every night. Loser mentality....singleton toughed it out and was still team first on twitter while in the doghouse....now his play has improved. Jordan is a loser....needs to be on a vet team where he's held accountable.
100% agree. All you need to know about the importance of those stats is that the Wiz were 3-11 in December -- and they're over .500 since.
The fact that he doesn't grasp tells us -- or confirms, rather -- all we need to know about Jordan Crawford. He's not a guy I enjoy watching or rooting for, and I'd be shocked if any team for which he got regular minutes was ever any good. Just not a winning player.
That is ignoring so much I would take pretty much nothing from that simple of an evaluation.
I'm not all in for Crawford regarding him being a future piece. I have always leaned toward them moving him eventually when the time is right but giving him a chance to help the team and maximize his value while keeping their eyes open for the right move with there being a small chance he works out here along the way.http://www.basketball-reference.com/pla ... fjo02.html
He has improved year over year. Even his defense. People want to see young players improve. We here is one that has. So they want even more from him regarding defense. Fine. They limited his minutes and then eventually bench him in part because of that and in part because they were winning and mixing Wall and Beal into things. Fine. Now lets see what he does when they play him again and if they play him in a way to maximize what he can contribute that the team needs. The team does actually have needs at back up PG and SG.
If they want to keep him benched, fine, let see what they come up with as an alternative. If it is Price and Temple, good luck with that. Maybe they go Price and Webster. That would work ok maybe but neither drives as well as Crawford. For me, I think the Crawford and Temple is worth a look. I could see what working.
He could be productive for the team there and that would also raise him value. I don't think anyone is trading for Price or Temple. People might actually be interested in Crawford. Specially if he can back up at PG which has has. In one of the five games he started at PG he posted a TRIPLE DOUBLE.
List the back up SGs that have been able to do that this year. Hell, add in last year if you want. And he is only 24 years old and making 2M next year. Some team is going to see the value in that.
