Q: What was the Greatest Moment in Allen Iverson’s career?
A: The Philadelphia 76ers steal Game 1 of the 2001 NBA Finals from the defending champion Lakers in Los Angeles. Iverson goes for 48 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds and 5 steals in 52 minutes played.
With 55 seconds left in overtime, and the Sixers up just two points, AI took Tyronn Lue to the baseline, crossed him between the legs, stroked the jump shot, then stepped over his Lue’s fallen body.
This moment was so great, not only is it the most memorable moment of Iverson’s career, it’s also what you remember about Tyronn Lue.
Allen Iverson was a bad dude.
