Jamal Crawford praised Markelle Fultz for his great performances this season, after dealing with injuries over the past couple of years.

Fultz was averaging 12.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.3 steals per game for the Orlando Magic this season.

“Another one I’m proud of! That’s another one. He just you know, being in the East and people were offing him. They out here saying that he’s the worst pick ever this that, and the third.

All of us were on Markelle and he had to be put in the right situation. Now he has it. And he’s showing people what he can be. He’s special to me.

His talent doesn’t come around often. He understands the game and he has that fortitude to deal with these people. Now he can really have fun and concentrate on his game. When he’s healthy, the sky’s the limit for him,” Crawford told Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson of
