Iso Scorer

Written by CWG0822

I bought Crawford for the sole purpose of being an isolation scorer and a general consistent threat at the offensive end.

Bought for: 12,000 MT (was a steal, next lowest BIN was 16,000)

Strengths:

  • Handles: breaks down defenders, creates space, and has speed to do blow-by's
  • Speed: Can get up and down the floor, also helpful in 1v1's
  • Release: Not as cheesy as Conley, but still easy to green from outside
  • Three: Didn't have trouble from three with at least some separation once you learn the release
  • Finishing inside: Has great layup packages to avoid blocks, even with smaller size
  • Passing: Hasn't missed any of the gimme or relatively tough passes

Weaknesses:

  • Defense: Need to user on defense, easily exposed 1v1
  • Size: Sometimes difficult down low, but has good layup packages to avoid

Recommended Strategy: ISO, ISO, ISO!!! Can also run P&R's effectively. Should be your primary ball handler, even if you're not playing him at PG.

Use if: "You want an iso scorer"

Don't use if: "You need lockdown defense"

Bottom Line: "RIP any defender's ankles"
