Jamal Crawford has enjoyed an incredible career in the NBA during which he has been named Sixth Man of the Year on three occasions. However, after spending the last decade with playoff-contending teams, Crawford now finds himself as part of a Phoenix Suns roster that is among the worst in the NBA -- and the former Clippers man is also personally enduring the worst statistical season of his career.

During 61 appearances from the Phoenix bench, Crawford has averaged just 6.6 points per game -- his lowest tally since 2000. The veteran has also shot at a career-low 30% from beyond the arc, and his overall field goal accuracy has plummeted to 37%.

At 39, Crawford appears to have little left in the tank, and he may be better off retiring than remaining with the Western Conference's worst team any longer than necessary.
