#Jamal Crawford has been in the league for a while now. He has seen a lot of NBA legends and great players hit the hardwood with or against him, so he knows all about the legacy that #LeBron James withholds.

In 18 long and enduring seasons in the NBA, Jamal 'Crossover' has averaged a solid 15.3 points, 3.5 assists, 2.3 rebounds on 41% shooting from the field and 35% from beyond the arc. It's been a pretty successful career so far for Crawford, and it certainly doesn't look like it's coming to and end very soon. Jamal is still able to knock down huge three-pointers and break his defender's ankles, something he has been doing for almost two decades.

These stats collate this year's postseason, as one of if not the best LeBron James playoff run of his career. The Cavaliers have also started the playoff run an amazing 9-0, sweeping their first two opponents. Further making the case for it being the King's greatest postseason run.

Jamal still showing love to Boston

Although Boston Celtics fans, players and coaching staff are disappointed with the performance in game one. Jamal Crawford still has high hopes for the young team, led by head coach Brad Stevens. Often there isn't a lot of times where you can look back at a loss and take something from it, but Crawford believes the C's can.

Jamal is praising the second half performance from the squad in green, showing that he still believes they can do damage against this Cavaliers team if they're focused and use this momentum. But at the end of the day, with LeBron and the Cavs playing at such a high level, does Boston even stand a chance?
