Clippers Guard Jamal Crawford Wants to Play 5 More Years in the NBA

Los Angeles Clippers guard Jamal Crawford keeps his skills honed during the summer to extend his career .

Los Angeles Clippers guard Jamal Crawford has been in the NBA for 16 seasons, but he doesn't plan to leave anytime soon. 

The 36-year-old has not slowed down. He played 26.9 minutes a game last season, averaging 14.2 points and 2.3 assists and shooting 34 percent from 3. Although the latest contract he signed with the Clippers (in July) only guarantees him three more years with the team, Crawford said recently in a tweet that he wants to play five more seasons.

That means Crawford would still be playing at 41 years old.

 

The three-time Sixth Man of the Year Award winner absolutely loves the game of basketball. Unlike many other players, he doesn't take summers off. JCrossover uses the off-season to show his skills on the court in summer leagues.

This summer, Crawford played in the Seattle Pro-Am and dominated.


When he's not playing in games, Crawford works on his shot in the gym. It doesn't matter where or when, but it seems he always has a basketball in his hand. If anyone can play until the age of 41, it would be him.
