Faraudo: Rookie Year Has Been "Humbling Experience" For Blazers G Allen Crabbe

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Portland Trail Blazers rookie guard Allen Crabbe adjusts to life in the NBA.

Jeff Faraudo of the Bay Area News Group has a quick piece on Portland Trail Blazers rookie guard Allen Crabbe, who isn't getting much burn after being selected in the second round of the 2013 draft out of Cal.

"It can be a humbling experience sometimes," Crabbe said Friday after practice. "It definitely is frustrating as a competitor, I'm not going to lie. It's a new adjustment for me, a process I have to go through and something I have to stay positive about."

Until now, Crabbe had been a starter for every team he played on since his freshman year in high school on the varsity squad.

...

"There are thousands of basketball players who want to be here," he said. "If I have an attitude because I'm not playing, I could be gone."

The full story is here.

Crabbe was taken with the No. 31 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. He played for Portland at the 2013 Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 4.8 points and 3.2 rebounds 25.7 minutes per game over six appearances.

Crabbe, 21, is averaging 2.8 points and 0.4 assists in eight appearances this season.

Crabbe met the Portland media back in June and walked home from training camp in October.
