Allen Iverson Says Michael Jordan Welcomed Him To The NBA By Calling Him A ‘Little B****’ The First Time They Met

I was a fan, that’s what I’ve always been, and he’s there glowing and looking down and damn he got on the Jordans…that was my guy that was my hero, but once they tipped the ball in the air, you’re going to remember #23 tonight like you always have but when you leave you’re going to remember #3 too

Iverson expanded on how Jordan would never let him forget how he crossed him up.

I went to a Charlotte game once and I was telling how much he meant to me and how much I rocked with him and he was like man you don’t rock with me like that because you wouldn’t have crossed me like that

A.I. was proud of his crossover moment over Jordan.

I always knew that when I got into the league I was going to try my move with the best, he was just a victim that night

To this day Iverson crossing up Michael Jordan is one of greatest moments in NBA history.

Iverson crossing up Jordan then hitting the jumper on him. Great defense by MJ, hell of a shot by AI. One of the most legendary moments in NBA history. Mike wasn’t scared to guard the other team’s best player during a pivotal play of the game, he wanted to. That is Greatness.
