my thoughts? he was probably the best guy to bring in since we couldn't necessarily get a dominant big man (something we need desperately in order to compete against the championship teams). He can create his own shot 1on1 and can run the point in crunch time if need be. He's faster than Bibby which allows for the Hawks to thrive in the run game (which we do since our half court offense is pretty bad). ultimately he is another scoring weapon that gives defenses headaches since the Hawks can have 4 legitimate scoring threats on at the same time.
in my opinion he's the 6th man of the year no doubt
For sure, 6th man of the year hands down. And my team is the Cavs! People would slap me for not saying Andy deserved it but out of all the good 6 men out there, including Andy, J Terry and Ginobili, I am going with Crawford for 6th man of the year.
I feel that the Hawks should have let Joe Johnson walk last summer and get the keys to Jamal Crawford to be the starting SG. Jamal in my opinion is better and more clutch than Joe Johnson, he just always played on bad teams. If the Hawks had let Joe go and signed Jamal he wouldn't have demanded that much money and plus it would be money to use on signing bench players.
