Now here’s a fun way to create a buzz on Twitter among basketball fans. By simply tweeting “Maccabi or Barcelona”, ex NBA-er Jordan Crawford opened the social media platform’s skies, making a storm of rumors break in the wake of his message.
Already many supporters of the Israeli club have asked him to join their favorite team by showing him videos of a full house Nokia Arena or pointing out how beautiful the city of Tel Aviv is. In total contrast, fans of the “Blaugrana” haven’t shown this amount of excitement, so far, being seemingly immune to the… bait.
Maccabi or Barcelona…. ?

It is currently unknown if the American shooting guard is actually considering continuing his career in Europe, with Barcelona or Maccabi as options, if he simply… asked his followers about which of these two they prefer or if his tweet was just a mere act of randomness. So far Maccabi has denied expressing any interest towards the player, while there’s no indication of any offer by Barcelona’s side.
Crawford has spent seven years in the NBA, playing for the Atlanta Hawks, Washington Wizards, Boston Celtics plus the Golden State Warriors with a career average of 12.2 points, , 3.2 assists plus 2.6 rebounds. During the previous season he played for the Tianjin Ronggang in China where he was named top scorer in CBA.
