    Sean Sweeney from DIME Magazine ranked the Top 5 crossovers in the game. Our boy, Jamal came in at No. 2 behind New Jersey's Deron Williams. This is what he had to say about JCrossover:
    Ray Allen’s not the only one to get an ankle workout from the only player in the league actually named after his crossover. Crawford’s game may not be remembered long after he retires – a career 15-point a night player on 41 percent shooting shouldn’t be – but they’ll still be playing tapes of his shake-n-bake and isolation crossovers 15 years from now. 
    Jason Terry disagrees, believes Crawford's got the best ankle-breaking move in the biz:
    “Jamal Crawford, my homeboy from Seattle, has the best crossover in the league,” Jason Terry said recently. “Jamal’s crossover is so tough because he’s so long and he stretches it out. There’s no way you’re going to get to it.”
    More from Sweeney:
    He’s right. If we’re going by a traditional, boom bap crossover, there’s no better teacher than J-Cross. He says he learned it from watching first Tim Hardaway, then Isiah Thomas and finally Allen Iverson. He has the handles to do anything, but normally he reserves his legendary left-to-right cross for anyone crazy enough to check him in an isolation situation.

    Sweeney's Top 5 went as such: John Wall, Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, Jamal Crawford, Deron Williams.  But who do you think has the deadliest/best/nastiest/nicest crossover today? Here's Jamal's case!

    ya it's a pretty gnarly  crossover but why has he missed so many shots lately? He's still a boss though!

    I've seen D-Will's handles and they just don't compare with Crawford's. Jamal does things with the ball that I've never thought possible. I mean, did you see him just absolutely drop Ray Allen? And that behind-the-back crossover on Kirk Hinrich just wasn't fair. I'm hoping we see more of his crossover as he becomes more comfortable in the system.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
