Jae Crowder will quickly become a fan favorite in Memphis once the 2019-2020 campaign kicks off. His hard-nosed, defense-first mentality will be welcomed by Grizz Nation, and his veteran leadership will be helpful on such a young Grizzlies roster. It’s also helpful that Crowder has fully embraced being a leader for this team when we spoke with him last week atGrizzlies Media Day.
At 29 years old, Crowder is the second oldest (active) player on a Grizzlies squad that features 14 players under the age of 25. His leadership and ability to groom these young Grizzlies into professional basketball players can do wonders on and off the court for the team.
On a team that is sure to make many of mistakes, Crowder will be there to help them correct those mistakes.
