Allen Iverson has savage response to Tim Hardaway’s crossover claim
Allen Iverson has been retired for the last three-and-a-half years, but he definitely hasn’t lost his killer instinct.
In an interview with Jonathan Abrams of Bleacher Report that was published Tuesday, the former MVP had this cold-blooded response to Tim Hardaway’s recent comments that Iverson carried the ball and that he, not Iverson, had the original crossover move, per Sopan Deb of the New York Times.

Drop the mic and burn down the club, folks.
Hardaway has a point in that he pioneered the “UTEP Two-Step” in the mid-to-late 1980s, well before Iverson rose to prominence. But you can’t argue with Iverson’s logic, as his Hall of Fame career was what really turned the crossover into a household move and inspired an entire generation of young ballers. Iverson lays fairly low these days (sans the occasional sound bite), but his ruthlessness on and off the court is something that will never be lost.
