The Los Angeles Clippers have the best record in the NBA. Let that sink in for a minute, I'll wait. Okay, let's get back to this move that Jamal Crawford pulled off last night in the Clips' 14th straight victory. That's not a typo, by the way. Crawford defied all logic during a fast break by stopping on dime, going between his legs, around his back and making the short jumper. Billy Crystal, a long time Clippers fan, was sitting with the announcers and was amazed, just like everyone else in the building.
My buddy D.A. the Lions fans texted me last night after this, writing simply, 'Jamal Crawford! Sick!' He follows all Michigan guys who go pro. I wasn't watching at the time, but after all the Christmas stuff was done, I made sure to check out the highlights and this nearly brought me off the couch. After the game, Magic Johnson said showtime was back in Los Angeles and he never thought he'd see it again, but that the Clippers have indeed brought it back. That's high praise. The Clippers are now 22-6. Strange but true!
