In the Denver Nuggets’ exhibition against the Chicago Bulls tonight, Robinson found himself with the ball approximately 35-feet from the basket as the shot clock was about to expire.

Dime Q&A: Jamal Crawford on Doc & Defense, Seattle Love, Age Minimums & More

Jamal Crawford

For years, we’ve watched Jamal Crawford with our jaws dropped following his usual brilliance with a basketball. Then we waited, agog, for his next incredible offensive display because they usually came in bunches. Just as often, we heard from people around the NBA that we were unlikely to speak with a more intelligent, thought-provoking, but — more importantly — also the most genuine guy in all of the NBA.

He’s also among the league’s top perimeter threats, shooting 41 percent from three, but, still, it was excusable to not exactly recognize Terrence Ross’s name upon first glance. Read More »

In the modern NBA dunk contest we rarely get to see who we truly want. We saw legendary performances in the past, from showdowns between Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins in the 1980s to Nate Robinson and Dwight Howard in the late 2000s.
