Timberwolves news: Jamal Crawford nutmegs defender to cap off undefeated run at Crawsover League
Throughout his career, Jamal Crawford has been able to showcase his incredible dribbling skills, and completed a number of highlight reel worthy plays. Now at 37 years old, he is still going strong and has not shown any signs of slowing down anytime soon.
During the championship game of his annual Crawsover League, the newly-acquired Minnesota Timberwolves guard led his team to the title. However, it wasn’t just any ordinary game, as it was filled with a lot of spectacular moves, including Crawford putting the ball around his defender to cap off his team’s undefeated run.
Crawford’s performance over the weekend proves that he is in tremendous shape despite being in the offseason. This is definitely good news for the Minneapolis faithful, as they are hoping that their new hybrid guard will be able to make a huge impact for the Wolves this coming season even if he comes off the bench.
The three-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year winner was signed by his new team after he reached a buyout with the Atlanta Hawks. He was part of a three-team deal also involving the L.A. Clippers and Denver Nuggets. Now with the Timberwolves, he will have a chance to help take the team to greater heights, especially after they’ve improved their lineup with the addition of Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson, among others. If he can prove that he still has a lot left in his tank and still play like he did earlier in his career, the Wolves might just become the dark horse in the Western Conference, and a serious contender for the title as well.
