What’s cooler than cool? cold. – Portland’s Allen Crabbe isn’t quite there yet but he’s well on his way; Crabbe finally got a chance to shine during what was supposed to be Portland’s rebuild a couple years ago – coming off the bench for 73 of 81 games, Crabbe found a role as an off-the-curl shooter & scorer at the two; made the NBA riding his beautiful J – nice base & mechanics w/ a consistent motion every time; more of a catch & shoot guy a year ago, Crabbe’s game has grown a bit after adding more counters off the dribble – capable of escape pull-ups, driving floaters; needs to continue to ace the intricacies of moving without the ball*; not too shabby on D, fights around screens well, sticks w/ shooters; prone to mental errors & silly turnovers sometimes; designated sniper in PDX – but how much room for growth? – Crabbe’s vast improvement inspires visions of 15-18 ppg seasons in the future

*important since Crabbe’s the rare sniper who’s just as comfortable scoring inside the arc – well, it’s only rare cause the midrange game is dead, I guess
