The crossover in a highlight is not always why the play is considered a highlight.
Think about the Allen Iverson and Michael Jordan play. If the defender was Pete Myers and not MJ it wouldn't be a play worth mentioning even the day after. MJ was not totally lost, Iverson had crossed plenty of people up to then, and it was not at a critical point in the game.
Anytime somebody gets dropped off a dribble move, its impressive. The crossover wasnt the purest form of the move but I don't think it was a travel, and it clearly worked.
