Allen Iverson was not a fun and easy person to guard in his prime. Ask Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller and all of the other guards that were active during his days in the City of Brotherly Love. As fans, we witnessed countless crossovers, hesitations and step back moves that made helpless defenders look really bad. Our “This Day In Sneaker History” column showcases one of the more memorable Allen Iverson highlights in his career. On June 16, Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers stole a nail-biting game 1 from the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2001 NBA Finals. The game 1 win was very shocking, but the way in which AI won the game will never leave our memories. While wearing a black and white version of the Reebok Answer IV, Iverson crossed helpless Tyronn Lue over, drained the shot and politely (if you will) stepped over a grounded Lue as he made his way to the other end of the court. Is this Iverson’s most memorable moment or does the MJ crossover sit above all of Iverson’s highlights?

Tyrone Lue got rich off that series, plus he won the title. Doubt he gives a f'k nor should anyone else.

That is one of my favorite basketball moments ever. And I had those kicks and I had those kicks, but they got stolen out of my locker :angry14: Im still mad about that. Reebok needs to re release those.

@ acting like that's such a rough price to pay for an NBA championship. NBA fans are the dumbest fans in any sport.

Makes me think of Iverson crossing Jordan and people treating him like a God for it when he couldn't hold Jordan's jock as far as titles and hardware.

I don't think it's a bad price for gettin an NBA championship, Shid If i had the chance to get crossed over by The Answer for a Ship with the lakers I'd do it. Im just bringin up the fact nobody remembers him except for this iconic moment. Why you takin shots at me?

jordan also had one of the 50 greatest players on his team at the time, not to mention of the greatest TEAMS the '96 bulls, only losing 10 games all season. albeit that you are right in that iverson doesnt compare to jordans work ethic and the infamous practice, but when ai was on the court, he was on the level of, or a level higher perhaps than MJ in terms of laying it all out there....this is coming from a huge jordan fan BUT there is definitly something to be said about iverson, ESPECIALLY being from philly, and i know that my fellow 'ill-ians' will agree with me
