Jordan Crawford

He always

Was...Shot selection is questionable, but he's a scorer. Late first round pick (I bet he declares).

One of the best

Dude is a pure scorer in multiple ways. Sure fire first rounder and his stock should rise high. I'd take him over Bledsoe in a heartbeat, even though Crawford isn't a PG. Bledsoe is too short for the NBA. He'll be a marginal player. This mock draft is incomplete with Crawford in the first round. Better update it soon.

He has really odd mechanics

He has really odd mechanics which I think will scare some GM's off. Though, if it works for him it shouldn't be seen as a negative.

His mechanics won't scare any GM's off. If Shawn Marion can be a lottery pick with that form and go to the NBA and still able to shoot the way he shoots, no GM will be scared of taking Crawford.

Great point Blackflash234,

Great point Blackflash234, didn't think about that. Though Shawn Marion had ridiculous athletic ability and had very good size for a 3 that is what also helped him, and Crawford has neither of those.

Yeah but Marion was more

Yeah but Marion was more than just a scorer. Great defender and great rebounder.

I think Kevin Martin is a decent comparison, hopefully better though.

His shot mechanics aren't

His shot mechanics aren't bad enough to scare teams away, because is release is quick. I think he can be very similar to Rashard McCants, except he won't be likely to snap and be a head-case. I like him alot more than I used to. He's a nice looking scorer with decent enough size for a SG.

funny

as I was watching the Xavier game w/ friends, one of them says....here is the transcript of the conversation which took place in OT......

Friend- "this dude is awesome, he's gotta be a high pick in the draft huh??".....

Me- "kind of, but not super high....he's got a few question marks".....

Friend- "Like what??? Looks pretty awesome to me"

Me- "one thing is that he might not have deep NBA range"

(about 30 seconds passes.....bang from like 35 feet)....

Friend- "Remind me not to hire you to run my draft if I ever own a team"

I like him

He is crafty around the hoop, and his deep range has been on display all tournament. A little bit like James Harden? Probably just the t-shirt. I like the K-Mart comparison for the most part.

KMart

the comparison to K-Mart probably just comes from remembering Martin as a King....wearing a black jersey and his big guys constantly fumbling passes and eating their shots.....

I feel that Jordan Crawford

I feel that Jordan Crawford and Dominique Jones are similar. Both undersized at the 2 guard position, efficient scorers, can shoot from anywhere, put teams on there backs.

didn't say he was great, but

didn't say he was great, but he is a solid shooter who needs to improve on his 3 ball.

Crawford

Man, he plays with alot of swag. Everything he does is so unorthodox. Even the way he moves is kinda goofy.

I like him, and tonight was amazing, but my question is what makes him better than Jodie Meeks? If somebody can give me an answer, he is a first rounder. If not he is a second rounder.

For the record, I hate Kentucky, but he reminds me of him from a strengths, weaknesses, size standpoint.

Crawford's playmaking

Crawford's playmaking ability sucks, he needs to see the floor better... I dont think his game will translate he doesnt have a superior skill that it takes to be a SG in the NBA...

if he didnt make that

if he didnt make that shot
we would all probably be saying he has poor shot selection and his a hog and doesnt put the team first
not saying he is
but just a thought

Crawford in the first round

Crawford is athletic, tough, and even if his release is not picture perfect, he can put it in the hole even from three. He will be a late first rounder and could rise to the 20th spot. GMs love plyars who play with such intensity and his tourney play displays than he can be a clutch player. Comparison : Ronnie Brewer.

I don't think so, pretty

I don't think so, pretty sure his brother is Joe Crawford formerly of Kentucky and they are not related to Jamal.

correct balltilifall5

Joe Crawford, former UK Wildcat, is Jordan's brother. He is in China playing bball, last I heard.

When Jordan was at IU he got to play against Joe.
