"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." And he's got some support in his opinion. "I feel like I'm better than him, anyway," he said. "My mom is going to say I'm better than him."
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Jordan Crawford, I wish you luck. You’ll need it.
The Washington Wizards combo guard recently declared that he believes he can surpass the great Michael Jordan in basketball prowess.
Translation: he doesn’t want to Be Like Mike. He thinks he can Be Better Than Mike.
I’m all for ambition, however, Crawford’s statements are ludicrous, bizarre, and unattainable. There is one ‘MJ’. And Crawford, while talented and engaging, will never match the career of perhaps the greatest player of all time.
Worst of all, Crawford ignored the reporter, who gave him the opportunity to clarify his comments, and made things worse by continuing to boast.
Now the media will focus on Wizards` young and somewhat certifiable talent.
