Found August 14, 2012 on Pass The Pill:

Don’t get me wrong, I dislike not having any NBA games on the schedule as much as the next guy. The offseason is fun, but it can get boring when free agency and trades start to slow down. Which is right around now.

There is some upside to this, however. Many players like to stay in shape and have some fun by playing in various pickup games, circuits, etc. These games tend to be pretty wide open with minimal defense and no lack of offensive highlights. It’s not good basketball by any measure, but it can be entertaining.

The latest highlight? Jamal Crawford. The latest victim? Spencer Hawes.

Jamal Crawford, the new Los Angeles Clipper, had quite the slam on 76ers big man Spencer Hawes.

You can watch it below. And please do.


Jamal Crawford is known for his scoring, and his tendency to fall in love with his own shot. Spencer Hawes is a very skilled and quality big man, but isn’t quite an enforcer underneath the hoop.
