Video: Can Jamal Crawford name all 17 NBA head coaches he’s played for?
Yes. Yes, he can.
At halftime of the Clippers’ 125-117 win over the Thunder on Sunday, ESPN’s Lisa Salters asked Jamal Crawford if he could name every NBA head coach he’s ever played for. That’s a pretty tall task, considering Crawford is in his 14th NBA season and playing under his 17th head coach.
Nonetheless, Crawford rattled the names off in impression fashion. For those scoring at home, Crawford has played under: Tim Floyd, Bill Cartwright, Bill Berry, Pete Myers, Scott Skiles, Lenny Wilkins, Herb Williams, Larry Brown, Isiah Thomas, Mike D’Antoni, Don Nelson, Mike Woodson, Larry Drew, Nate McMillan, Kaleb Canales, Vinny Del Negro and Doc Rivers.
But Crawford’s memory feat wasn’t Crawford’s most incredible performance of the night. He also dropped 36 points (13-of-20 shooting) and hit five three-pointers in the Clippers’ win, neutralizing Kevin Durant’s game-high 42 points.
As always, Crawford’s big performance came with an array of jaw-dropping shots, scoops and jukes. Here are the highlights of his dual against Durant, via NBA.com:
