Find someone who’s loyal to you like Jamal Crawford‘s loyal to his Blackberry.
Yep, in the age of iPhone and Android .. the 41-year-old NBA star still rocks a Blackberry device — AND HE’S DAMN PROUD OF IT!!
The 3-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year was outed as a Berry-user during a Thursday interview with Candace Parker on “NBA on TNT” … and once J.C. copped to the using the relic, Shaq and the rest of the crew came with the jokes!
“With my teammates I couldn’t be on the group texts.” 😂

“They still got BlackBerry?” one voice said while Shaq and Candace piled on.
So, why is Crawford so adamant about living in the past when it comes to his phone?!?!
“It’s the keyboard,” Jamal said proudly … “You know, I don’t gotta spend time erasing stuff. It’s the keyboard. It shows my loyalty. Once I switched over to Blackberry I never left.”
Crawford’s loyalty came with a price … explaining his NBA teammates had to send him separate messages since he couldn’t join the group chats.
“With my teammates, I couldn’t be on the group texts. They had to send me stuff on the side since I didn’t have [a smart phone] … it was coming up green.”
For the record, it looks like Crawford’s rockin’ a Blackberry Key2 — which came out in 2018 and features a full QWERTY keyboard.
Who knew they were still making those things?!?!
