Washington Post: Crawford is Eastern Conf POW


More from the Washington Post, throwing egg on the Wizards faces:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wizards-insider/wp/2013/12/09/former-wizards-guard-jordan-crawford-named-eastern-conference-player-of-the-week/

The Wizards thought so little of Jordan Crawford that they traded him to Boston last February for two veterans who contributed a total of four points, eight rebounds, four blocks, two assists and 11 personal fouls in six games. The night of the deal, which landed Jason Collins and the injured Leandro Barbosa, Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld declared that Crawford "did not fit into our current plans… or our future plans."

Ten months later, Crawford is thriving with the Celtics and was named Eastern Conference player of the week after averaging 23.3 points on 61 percent shooting with 6.7 assists and 3.0 rebounds in leading his first-place team to a 3-0 record. Crawford also connected on 12 of 23 shots three-point range, including a career-high six in a 114-73 victory over the New York Knicks.

Regarded as a gunner with a questionable shot selection with the Wizards, Crawford has had three games this season with 10 assists and recorded a triple-double with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in a win over Cleveland. He has scored at least 20 points five times and is averaging 13.9 points on a career-high 46.4 percent shooting for the surprising Celtics, who currently sit atop the anemic Atlantic Division at 10-12.
