For a Friday, how about 5 minutes of Allen Iverson crossovers (VIDEO)

Sep 6, 2013, 12:15 PM EDT

It’s Friday afternoon and admit it, you’re pretty much spending the day thinking about anything but work — your fantasy football team, hanging out with your buddies at the bar tonight, spending Saturday with Notre Dame vs. Michigan followed Sunday with the NFL (where your fantasy team is doomed because the other guy had Peyton Manning).

So instead of pretending to work, why not spend five minutes watching Allen Iverson just cross people up.

This great video talks about him learning the move while at Georgetown and there are video clips all the way back to Iverson in college. And of course, AI crossing up Jordan.

Hat tip to Lang at All Ball.

    So sick of hearing about ow he “Crossed over” Jordan,and I LIVE IN PHILLY! All I remember about that game is that they LOST! Just like they LOST all of those games in his rookie year when he scored a ton of points.

      Too bad that’s all you remember. You need to enjoy the game for the game sometimes.

      AHAHAHAAH…You are sick about hearing about one of the few guys that have given your team relevance in 26 friggin years…….ahahahahaha

      You’ve had NOTHIN to really get excited about in Philly since Dr. J…..and he retired in 1987 !!!

      So, if you did live in Philly (and you don’t)….be glad, someone is mentioning a team that has been TOTALLY forgotten about….as a contender !

    More like carryovers.

      It’s not a carry. This is how the league defines a palming violation.

      Palming – A violation in which a player moves his hand under the ball and scoops it while dribbling.

      At no point does his hand go below the basketball. He dribbles the ball and brings his hand up with it in order to create a hesitation. Then brings it down sharply to create the crossover. Dribbling slowly is not a violation. In order for it to be a carry his palm needs to be facing away from the floor. His hand is on the side of the basketball but it is always angled toward the floor. He never holds the ball. It’s not a carry.

    Born and Raised in Philly and still reside here where I own a Business Champ! So,don’t assume I don’t simply because I didn’t worship at the Iverson Alter. Some of us Philly Fans actually care more about WINNING than highlight moves. I cherish the memory of sweeping the Lakers for the title far more than ANYTHInG Iverson did!

    Born and Raised and STILL living here Son! And STILL not impressed with “Carrying” the basketball in place of VICTORIES! As a Fan I”m funny that way. I actually care about WINNING!
