2012-13 stats: 16.5 PPG, 1.7 RPG, 2.5 APG, 43.8 FG%, 37.6 3P%, 16.89 PER

Jamal ‘The Ankle Breaker’ Crawford comes in at a reluctant no. 2.  Crawford helped lead the Los Angeles Clippers to one of their best seasons in franchise history (although they fell short to the Memphis Grizzlies in the 1st round).  The 6’5 shooting guard gave the Clippers much needed scoring off the bench, and another showtime player to go along with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul.  Crawford is looking to have an even better season this year especially after many criticized his game once his jump shots stop falling.
