Jordan Crawford is nothing if not ambitious. A relatively unheralded late first round pick out of Xavier, Crawford has always appeared to have something to prove to the world. The player scouts tagged a chucker, too small, too undisciplined and not athletic enough has made a career out of proving himself time and time again. People may have laughed when Crawford claimed to want to be better than Michael Jordan, but would you expect anything less from a player with the balls to attempt to dunk on an in-his-prime Lebron James as a teenager?

The Washington Wizards got off to an awful start this season and there were poor performances across the board. The one exception was Crawford, who appeared to relish the chance to become the team's go-to scorer. From the beginning of the season until John Wall returned to action Crawford was superb. Since then? Well, the results haven't been pretty, and even coach Randy Wittman has acknowledge that he's struggling.
