Wizards SG Jordan Crawford: I Can Be Better Than Michael Jordan
While I believe it’s important as an athlete to have confidence and strive to be the greatest, I wish players would come out wanting to set their own goals and test their limits. Not once have I heard KD refer to himself as the next Michael Jordan or claim to be better than Lebron. He just plays basketball and gets it done.
You may remember Jordan Crawford for his dunk embargoed around the world. He’s come a long way since the day when Nike blocked his embarrassment of LeBron James. Crawford, a second-year guard with the Wizards, had a great tournament with Xavier before becoming a first-round pick in 2010. Last season with the Wizards, he averaged nearly 12 points per game and 24 minutes. Nothing spectacular, but it won’t stop Crawford from believing in himself.
Take a look at comments he made recently.
“I don’t tell nobody, but I feel like I can be better than Michael Jordan,” Crawford said, without the slightest hint of sarcasm. “When I’m done playing, I don’t want people to say, Michael Jordan is the best player. I want that to be me. That’s how I am. That’s how I was built.”
When told that people would think he was crazy for saying that, Crawford didn’t back down.
“Yeah, I know that, I definitely know that. But I’m not settling for anything less,” Crawford said. “I feel like I’m better than him, anyway. My mom is going to say I’m better than him.”
