Jordan Crawford Makes the Rounds on Local Sports Talk

By Jon Newberry

On Monday the 27th pick of the 2010 NBA Draft made the rounds on Atlanta’s Sports Talk Radio. Jordan Crawford first chatted with 680 the Fan’s Buck and Kincade before switching over to 790 the Zone’s Pollack and Bell Show. Follow the links below to listen to the full conversations:

Interesting portions of the interviews include Jordan using the word “aggressive” when asked to describe his game on 680, and telling 790 that the first thing he buys with will have to be for his mom and dad for “everything he’s put them through”.

Jordan also talked to 790 about his attitude coming straight into camp and his excitement about playing with Jeff Teague in the backcourt in Las Vegas.

“I always play with a chip on my shoulder,” he said. “I want to win every game and leave Vegas undefeated.”

Interestingly enough, Crawford seemed familiar with Teague’s game and likely played against each other in various AAU tournaments when they were younger. Teague is just 4 months older than Crawford and they both are from the same region of the country (Teague is from Indianapolis and Crawford is from Detroit).

    Are you serious 6 year 119Mill Deal for Joe? Forget this team were going no where might as well hop on a bandwagon, I swear thats the dumbest thing Ive ever heard If they sign JJ for that its over hes not worth it were paying him like hes Frickin MJ!! I swear thats like a shot in the head how will we resign Jamal and Al with Joe spending all the money? are we going to spend tons of money on a team the WONT win a chamionship? I swear if they sign that extension were DONE, Ill hop on Kings,Wizards, THunder, Clippers etc. Bandwagon because that is absurd.

    Hawksfanman, I get what you saying. He’ll almost be getting as much as my Kobe. Well, all I know is give him 100mil with no trading mess, and just keep him.

    NOW THATS A MAX NO QUESTIONS ASKED

    Well maybe thats more than a max, but hey if somebody try to give me something n the millions I take, but anything 1-10mil for JJ thats an insult.

    Really Let Joe go, look at who’s coming in the leauge we will NEVER win a championship with Joe wearing our Jerzeys period we can make moves and becom areally good team but we will never be elite because we make dumbp picks(Marvin williams over chris paul, shelden williams over brandon roy), and dumb transactions signing Joe to a 120 mill deal. Hes gonna end up just like Glbert Arenas, Jermaine Oneal, Elton Brand etc. I dont understand why sign max contract for someone who is a bit above good as a player, and is not getting better, were going to end up regretting this move I swear

    actually who cares whose coming in the league. they aint nobody. what they go do. huh. I’m just saying. AND WHY DO Y’ALL DUMB BROADS CARE ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY JJ IS MAKING ITS NOT COMING OUT OF Y’ALL POCKETS. SHOOT Y’ALL JUST MAD BECAUSE Y’ALL CAN’T EVEN BE MILLIONAIRE. SO WILL Y’ALL JUST SHUT THE HECK UP AND ENJOY THE DARN SHOW OR GO TO SUPPORTING SOME LAME TEAM THATS A WANNA BE ATLANTA HAWKS LIKE THE OKC THUNDER. SHOOT JUST LIKE JJ I COULD CARELESS IF Y’ALL FOLKS DO SUPPORT THE HAWKS BECAUSE THE PHILLIPS ARENAS IS DOING JUST FINE WITHOUT YOU PEOPLE ANYWAY. SO BYE THEN!

    BYE BYE BE GONE YOU BANDWAGONS AND HATERS. YOU WANNA KNOW WHOS BEING CHEAP JUST TAKE A LOOK AT YOURSELF FOR ONCE. YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT THINK ABOUT YOU SO CALLED HAWKS FANS. WELL I THINK YOU ALL ARE THE CHEAP ONES OF THIS BUNCH. Y’ALL FOLKS DON’T APPRECIATE NOTHING PEOPLE DO FOR Y’ALL.

    BTW THERES NOW BANDWAGONS OR HATERS OR CHEAP IN FAN OR TEAM.

    SO GET A LIFE!

    @atownhawk ur dumb not nevermind your comment is dumb first of all what do you mean look who’s coming to the leauge? Are you serious?
    Look you came at me very wrong bro thats disrespectful but it doesnt matter look I could care less what Joe makes I just think that were spending all that money on What? were not going to be a chamionship team with Joe I’ll put money on it, the owners are building this team to have highlights and sell tickets, not win games, this is my team and maybe i went to far when I said I would bandwagon but seriously, Anytime a respected anylyst calls this the worst NBA contract EVER, thers a prolem.
    Let me tell you whats going to happen, Joe will except the contract offer and play well as he always has for about three years, then age will catch up with him, causing him to play horrible but still get payed like hes MJ, this tyoe of thing happens all the time, a good example is Jermaine ONeal and look at how the pacers are doing now because of it, for those three years well be good maybe keep getting better but we wont win a chamionship let alone eastern conference champs, how are we going to get this center everyone keeps talking about if we give all of our money to Joe, Oh and atownhawk do not say the thunder are wanna bees because they are one of the only teams who I can trully say is better than us, dont forget that we beat every team in the Leauge this season except Them, and KD is definately better than Joe and will win MVP’s and Championships unlike Joe Johnson.
    dont get me wrong I like Joe but signing him is the wrong move………………………If we are trying to win a championship

    I read somewhere about a sign and trade for lebron Cle sing lebron to a 20Mill, and we get LBJ and JJ Hickson and they get Smoov, Marvin, and Mo Evans. That doesent look to bad

    1:Teauge/Crawford/Bibby
    2:Johnson/Jordan Crawford
    3:LLLLEEEBBRRON JAMES!/J Chill
    4:Horford/Hickson
    5: /Pachulia

    and that 5th spot would have alot of options since Lebron would be coming, the only problem would be convincing Lebron to actually agree to this deal, if it did happen I predict about 5 championships, what do you guys think?

    I like your lineup but i want to tweek it a little

    Sign and trade Lebron and JJ Hickson for smoov, marvin, Mo evans and some cash, then sign shaq, and resign chill, then we need to sign one of these undrafted C’s like: Art Parakhouski – Center (Radford), or Omar Sahman – Center (Saint Marys)and put them on the summer leauge team or D-Leauge, and resign Mario west for cheap
    i like his D
    Teauge/Crawford/Bibby
    Johnson/(Jordan)Crawford/west
    James/Childress
    Hickson/
    Horford/Pachulia/Oneal
