Crawford said he hopes Young returns, but has every intention of challenging Young for the starting spot if he does. As of now, the three guards who are here get better together every day.

“We’re seeing each other’s weaknesses,” Crawford said. “John and Shel have really been pressuring each other bringing the ball up. I think that’s going to work in game-time situations. I think coach will decide what’s the better matchup on the floor. I’m willing to guard whoever. I’m very confident in my [defense].”

For a player who challenged Kevin Garnett to a fight during a summer-league game and compared himself to Michael Jordan, Crawford is not a player who backs down.

Even when it comes to video games.
