5. Jamal Crawford
Your favorite player’s favorite player, nobody has anything bad to say about Jamal Crawford. The only negative is the fact he’s no longer in the league, although at 43-years-old, he is never coming back. Crawford played one season for the Suns, back in 2018-19.
Back then the organization were trying to figure things out around Devin Booker, and it showed as they want an ugly 19-63. Good for the worst record in the Western Conference. Crawford, as he so often did, came off the bench in every one of the 64 games he played. He averaged 18.9 minutes per game.
Even at 38, Crawford did all of the things that made him a record three-time Sixth Man of the Year. His handles were dazzling and he brought a little bit of street ball to the league, he was just not able to do all of the things that we’d become accustomed to nearly as consistently anymore. Shooting 33.2 percent didn’t help things either.
Offensively there were still moments, but it was wasted on a team that was going nowhere. Defensively Crawford was not good to put it lightly, and at 7.9 points per game he was way past his best as a scoring threat. It was worth a shot, but for Crawford the journey was almost over and in Phoenix, it showed.
