Freeman: Jamal Crawford Paid Luke Babbitt $12K For No. 11

33
Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports that new Portland Trail Blazers guard Jamal Crawford paid forward Luke Babbitt $12,000 for the right to wear jersey No. 11. ------------------------- "That was a hard bargain, a tough bargain to get it," Crawford said, laughing, after the Blazers’ practice on Saturday. "Luke could have been a lawyer ... he got me." ... "He low-balled me," Babbitt said, laughing. "So I came back with something and we met in the middle." ------------------------- The negotiated settlement is enough to cover Babbitt's next 1,000 haircuts at Supercuts, figuring $10 for the cut plus a $2 tip (and disregarding inflation or price increases). Great story. Give it a read. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
