Several outlets are reporting that former Knick Jamal Crawford has been named Sixth Man of the Year by a pretty healthy margin.
The holes in Jamal’s game are well-chronicled at Knickerblogger.net. Few Knicks could take fans on such an emotionally exhausting journey, from spittle-flying rage to sheer unadulterated “how did he hit that?” delight–all in one quarter–like Jamal. When he’s right, that bony, knock-kneed kid with the mild overbite has a game that is absolute poetry. When he’s not right, he’s often the last to know unfortunately. Even still, few Knicks were more likable during the dark ages.
So, congrats Jamal.
