Tuff Juice EP29 - Jamal Crawford on his wild workout routine, NBA comeback & mentoring players

The Tuff Juice Podcast with Caron Butler

Jul 9 2020 • 35 mins

The last time Jamal Crawford played an NBA game — April 9, 2019 — he dropped 51 points at age 39 like it was nothing. Fifty-@#$%in’-one! And yet, despite the scoring punch he could obviously still provide off the bench, not one of the league’s 30 teams signed the free agent guard for the 2019–2020 season. Now, while the NBA attempts a restart in Orlando and players are opting out due to health and social justice concerns, he’s hoping to get another chance to play the game he loves at the highest level. On this episode of “The Tuff Juice Podcast,” Jamal talks with Caron Butler about the NBA bubble and what it would take for him to opt out of it, the crazy routine he’s using to stay in game shape, how he’s adjusted to new roles over the course of his career, the teams he’s most interested in joining, his idea of a perfect sendoff, how he’s planning to continue his career in basketball once he retires from playing, mentorship in the Seattle basketball community and what makes the city’s culture so special, why he’s optimistic about the current anti-racism movement, his experience being on the Clippers team that took a stand against racist owner Donald Sterling, and much more. Like Jamal’s shooting, this episode is clutch! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
