Los Angeles Clippers guard Jamal Crawford has been on fire as of late in drawing interest to his Seattle Basketball Pro-AM league, successfully inviting stars such as Kevin Durant, Jeff Green and Tyreke Evans. Up next in the near future is teammate Blake Griffin, but he surprisingly announced that rising superstar Kyrie Irving was going to be an immediate guest in Friday’s game.
For good measure, Irving also played some solid defense and had blocks on two consecutive possessions, as seen below:
I’m sure there is plenty more of where that came from, but on a more important note, it is absolutely fantastic to see Crawford bringing life to a city that so desperately craves to see NBA players in action. The league couldn’t bring a team back to Seattle soon enough.
