Default Re: Allen Iverson's Crossover vs. Michael Jordan's Crossover

- Jordan wass a better defender, no, MUCH better defender than Russell
- Jordan penetrated and pulled back, with a light push on Russell. Iverson didn't lay a finger on Jordan and did it without running
- Jordan was facing AI the whole time, Russell had to go side-to-side with Jordan to keep up. Jordan was running, Iverson was on the spot.

Iverson's was better. Looked better and was harder to do.

The Iverson crossover was blown WAYYYYY out of proportion... it's nice.. but come on...

The Jordan "ref's swallowed whistle", offensive foul, push-off crossover? Hey that's fine and all... but he did foul and get away with it, so I don't know how great you can call that.

Jordan didn't push off enough for an offensive foul. He had his hand on his ass, but it wasn't that bad.

Wade had an ugly one on Eric Snow a few years ago.

I will never understand how ISH folks get off topic so fast. The question is which is better, the AI crossover shown, or the Jordan one. We get like 5 "Tim Hardaway is better" comments and one about Isaiah Thomas. It's really not rocket science.

To answer the question that was actually ASKED tho, it's AI. Jordan pushed off and it was just Russell guarding him

There have been enough scrubs over the years that have demonstrated a killer crossover on a superstar every once in while, that it's really not... It's very good, don't get me wrong... But everyone somehow made that crossover make Iverson better than Jordan and all that.. Maybe it's the high altitude in Colorado, that makes you a little more excited than you should be. One play does not make the player. Remember when Gary Payton stripped it from Jordan and then dunked in in the finals? Who cares... it's one nice play... Jordan had them all the time. As far as comparing these two crossovers... if we are talking about impact... then Jordan's win's hands down.

Marv Albert calling one of A.I's most famous crossovers. slightly offtopic but hey its Marv.

for once i agree with Eric. Tim's just seemed tighter, quicker, etc. hard to describe. everyone copied Hardaway.

The AI crossover was obviously better but it is in fact the most over-hyped crossover in NBA history.

Honestly, I don't even put it in AI's top 10 all time. Only reason people talk about it is because it was Michael Jordan and it is one of the few embarrassing MJ moments that the NBA/media has no problem replaying.

well its definitely overhyped. it's 5'11 Iverson at his fastest vs 34 year old 6'6 Jordan.

still fun to watch tho, especially since MJ and Iverson were somewhat feuding during that time. nice to see MJ get burned for once.
