Former Piston Allen Iverson talks about the art of the crossover

I might be the only Piston fan who actually takes pride in claiming Allen Iverson as a former Piston, but even if you still dislike AI because of his brief Detroit tenure, you have to admit that the man had an insane crossover. Iverson, along with Dwyane Wade, Tim Hardaway and others, is featured in the above New York Times video on the art of the crossover dribble. Iverson talking about crossing up Michael Jordan as a rookie is pretty epic. (Hat-tip, SLAM)

    And that alone is pretty much why he was my favorite player growing up.

    Over Under: Half of AI’s crossovers would be called carries in today’s NBA.

      Afraid not. While a lot of them may technically be carries, most carries are never called. I mean, when is the last time you’ve seen one called in the NBA? It basically never happens. Even less than travels. And it is widely believed that the vast majority of travels don’t get called.

    Excellent PH!! This video was epic!! I was so disappointed that we could not get our hands on him earlier, CURSE YOU MATT GEIGER!!
    Flash forward to when we did trade for him, I was still excited but I believed that his inability to accept a role, is what made him a great player, however also made him bad for this team.

      I mean really i don’t get how Matt Geiger had that much say, he was like a Greg Ostertag.

    TT not only lived up to the Z name but it blew all predecessors out of the water.
