Jamal Crawford is known for having some of the nastiest handles in the NBA. The fact that he found another victim last night in Portland’s Wes Matthews is not newsworthy in and of itself. But I’ve never seen anyone in the NBA toyed with like this.
Keep in mind that this isn’t a point guard taking on a center on a switch, or even just someone getting crossed up. Crawford treats Matthews like he’s his kid, just messing with him unnecessarily. Jamal could get his buckets normally. Instead, he decides to embarrass Matthews along the way.
Don’t take my word for it. Just watch this GIF over and over and over.
Say what you want about Kevin Garnett, but this is the worst case of bullying I’ve ever seen in the NBA.
