Allen Iverson Crossover On Michael Jordan: ‘MJ And I Were In A War’

 

When we think of Allen Iverson, we probably all have the same career highlights of him in mind: His cross- and stepover against Tyronn Lue in the 2001 Finals, his ‘We talking bout practice’ speech and the famous crossover of him against Michael Jordan.

 

 

When Allen Iverson was a guest at Steven Colbert’s ‘The Late Show’, he was asked about his famous crossover on Michael.

 

“Still, today, little kids, five and six years old, come up to me and they don’t say, ‘Are you Allen Iverson?’ They say, ‘You’re the guy who crossed up Michael Jordan, aren’t you?’ It was a special moment in my career because that was my idol … That night, we were just in a war. When you’re in a war, as much as you love the person you’re playing against, my Philly teammates and Philly fans, I was on their side.” (via ftw.usatoday.com)
