Jamal Crawford is nothing if not a class act. The 2014 Sixth Man of the Year showed his appreciation to those who voted for him by sending them thank you notes.

This got me wondering. What, exactly, did Crawford send in those emails? Was it a long, thought-out letter? Was it a simple e-card? Perhaps it was a gib-gab.

Maybe Crawford decided to just go with a playful and colorful card, something that matches his personality.

Or, perhaps he thought that was a bit too much.


Another route was to go with a more modern approach. It seems everyone these days loves memes, and it’s possible Crawford tried to hop aboard this fad and have some fun.

These designs, however, took away from Crawford’s true purpose. This wasn’t about him — he already had his award. This was about the voters, those who deemed him once again worthy of this esteemed honor. Without them, he wouldn’t be where he is — he wouldn’t be a two-time Sixth Man Of The Year.
