About a month later, Iverson got Jordan back with the most famous crossover move of his Hall of Fame career.
“The first time I ever talked to him was that year, playing in the rookie game,” Iverson said a wide-ranging interview. “I’ll never forget it, because he said, ‘wassup, you little bitch?’ I’ll never forget it. I looked at him like … ‘Aight, man.’”
“I always knew when I got to the elite I was going to try my move on the best, so he was just a victim that night,” Iverson said of the infamous cross on Jordan.
“I remember one time I was telling him I went to Charlotte game and I was telling him how much he meant to me and how much I rocked with him and he said, ‘You wouldn’t have rocked with me like that because you wouldn’t have crossed me like that.’”
