Yes! Long live AI
To this day it beats me why he’s still not in the NBA..
SIMPLY THE BEST, STILL THE ANSWER #3 DON´T FORGET
AI=LEGEND, NBA & GAME NEED TO AI
“Find a master before you can come back into the dojo”
hope more highlights surface of him playing, dude needs to get his groove back in the NBA soon
That was pretty. Wish there was a slo-mo replay.
student meet teacher
I just like the idea of AI playing again. This was pretty basic crossover with limited defensive effort – doesn’t really showcase what AI still has left in the tank.
Still has that filthy crossover.
AI still can ball.. He just need another shot. Any team in the nba. Hope Miami gets him. King of crossover.
Boy, AI looks like me in that footage..and I’m 45. A slow crossover against no D and ending with a short bankshot with no lift. HAHA….that used to be days of going strong to the rack to challenge anyone defending. Father Time is showing big time in that footage. AI would make a mockery of himself if he went to training camp.
David Stern Blackballed Him That’s why He ain’t in the NBA now
That Crossover Still Lethal
That was lightwork for ai. That man still has his whole ballhandling arsenal. I doubt he even has to practice his handles…which is convenient because I have a hunch he’s not too fond of practice.
still with the nasty handle. just imagine that 10 times faster 14 yrs ago!
Too bad the whole NBA is Jeff Teague clones…
His talent is not the problem, it’s his mindset.
100% exactly what JTaylor21 said, Stevie Franchise was another one with the wrong mindset that I miss watching
David Stern blackballed him? Did you not see the disastrous way he handled himself in Memphis and Detroit? Why would another NBA team give him a chance?
It’s over. He’s so much slower, no lift either after the 3 games in Memphis it was over taking a month and a half off of basketball at the age of 34 can destroy your career especially if you live life like A.I., he should be happy he got to finish as a Sixer the NBA did blackball him and he could def play a role for a team but he will quit again, you won’t see Kobe playing if he can’t dominate, AI is the same way he can’t handle it but he would rather be in the NBA. No point in a return, feel bad for dude he would really humiliate himself in training camp.
Should have never said “I’d rather retire than come off the bench” that showed the league that he indeed does think he is bigger than the NBA. Should have never said NBA Cares is “Fake” at the end of the day AI was just too real for the NBA.
the greatest ringless athlete of all time
^over elgin baylor?
^ AI is by far from the greatest ringless basketball player of all time. Give me guys like Barkley, Malone, Stockton, or Ewing. Hell, even Lebron.
Scary part about this clip is that it looks like he wasn’t even trying. AI is the best.
Yeah Ivo is one of my favorite players ever, but he’s nowhere near the greatest ringless baller. That easily goes to Baylor. Cosign OTB with the other names as well, but I can squeeze AI into the top 10 of ringless players.
Best player at 6ft in the NBA ever… and I love Stockton’s game, I really do he played with passion, but there’s just something about a 6 footer leading the league in scoring soo many years. I see Iverson being able to run the pick and roll better than Stockton ever sniffing a 50 point game.
It appears he’s still got “it”.. =D
AI (my idol) still got it!!!
Would love to see AI play on Boston, its a good fit for him to go out with pride.
JStock’s better than AI.
*Gasp* Somebody think AI is better than John Stockton?
before i visited the page, i assumed everyone who has gone here is a fan of AI. what i don’t get is that there are haters wasting time posting negative comments. if youre not an AI fan, you are not supposed to be in this page anyway. Think man, think!
he makes it look too easy
AI is a more streaky shooter than JS. Stockton is a CAREER 51% FG shooter. If we take their best years for each statistical category, JS has 17.2 ppg, 14 apg, 3.2 spg, 46% from 3, and 57% from FG. AI, on the other hand, comes in at 33 ppg, 8.0 apg, 2.8 spg, on 45% shooting, and 34% from 3, and the mentality of a moron. Give me the short shorts man.
this is life
Still my favorite player in the WORLD!!!!!…Wish the Knicks would stop b.s.’ing and sign him (If we make it outta this damn lockout, of course…)
You know, that really wasn’t that simple of a cross, he ran STRAIGHT at Teague and waited until Teague reached out at the ball to do the cross in such limited space. That wasn’t a fast break hesistate-cross, he changed directions there a bit faster than I thought AI could still do.
Yeah, it was in slow motion compared to the old AI, but it was actually a pretty good move.
For the ones saying AI is the best 6ft in NBA history…have you guys heard of Nate Archibald and Isaiah Thomas?
nope who are they… no I LOVE Isaiah don’t get me wrong he did have a whole lotta heart and a few rings, played hurt and all. But no SLAM Magazines covers and he was 6’1″… lol but all kidding aside Isaiah was outdone by Magic and Jordan to me. Iverson was a lot like Dr. J of my generation and changed the game. I mean you can’t really compare him with point guards you have to compare him with the great SCORERS, not passers. Tiny Archibald cmon man I’m not going back that far bro I mean you could of at least said Muggsy Bogues lol
elgin baylor has no mvps, 1 all star mvp and no scoring titles…….AI has an mvp and 2 all star mvps and 4 scoring titles ….i think we all know who the better player is…dumasses
He does things like this because he is Allen Iverson.
omg thank u so much manu!!!!!!!!!!!!
@manu… Nash has 2 mvps… Kobe has none… great argument. hardware does not equate to better players.
