Jamal Crawford made his debut with the Brooklyn Nets and set multiple NBA and franchise records.

Crawford played for the first time since 2019, but was forced to exit the game after just five minutes of play, due to a left hamstring injury.

Crawford, who is 40 years and 137 days old, became the oldest player officially in the season restart in Orlando. Crawford also became the eighth player in NBA history to appear in a game in 20 different seasons. The other players to do so were Vince Carter (22 seasons), Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, Robert Parish and Kevin Willis (21) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Kobe Bryant (20).

The veteran guard is also the oldest Nets player to ever appear in a game, breaking the mark set by Cliff Robinson in 2007, who was 40 years and 121 days old.
