Positively Average

The NY Post's Marc Berman blogged about Jamal Crawford's offseason training. It was rather vague, 'cept for a reveal of JC's new listed weight (204 lbs.). That, and a quote about a desire to start, is apparently enough to ponder "why Jamal Crawford isn't a bigger name. Or rather, why he wasn't put in a position to become one."

Crawford's status as a guy with oodles of potential and little to show for it hasn't changed. Obviously he's not alone in that odd grouping of players (Hi, Eddy!), but a veteran of 7 NBA seasons shouldn't be expected to suddenly play way above the level of averageness he's existed at for 6 of 'em. He's certainly had his chances to play at a higher level; 35.1, 38.4, 32.3, and 37.2 MPG the past 4 seasons. The 35.1 was for the Bulls, in case you think Crawford "regularly drew the wrath of Scott Skiles in Chicago". Tyrus Thomas would love to regularly draw the wrath of Skiles if it means leading the team in minutes played.

The opportunities have been there, and Craword has played well. A consistently average PER, and positive +/- ratings are respectable accomplishments. There just hasn't been a trend of improvement, and the ups and downs of Crawford's play from game to game are infuriating. Let's give the potential label a rest, and maybe email Crawford a screenshot of his oogly shot chart.

That Shoals quote is hilarious. It's not just Ty Thomas; Ben Gordon would probably love to regularly draw Skiles' wrath, if it meant 35 min. a game.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
