The CrossOver

And the first half of the Final Four has been completed, with A.I. running away with this one.  This now makes back to back match-ups for Iverson, that resulted in an overwhelming victory for him.  Now A.I. gets to sit comfortably in the finals and await his fellow challenger.  Tim Hardaway will take on the upset man himself, Jason Williams, in the 2nd and final match-up in the Final Four.  Both of these players have devastating handles, but two totally different styles.  Hardaway was the smooth, and much more controlled style of play, while Williams was the NBA’s version of the And One Mixtape.  And speaking of the And One Mixtape, Williams knocked off the King of Streetball, in Skip To My Lou, in a very controversial victory.  It’s a wonder as to whether or not Williams has another upset in him, let’s find out…

    Tim created, patented, and revolutionized this move. He wins hands down.

    J. Will was more of a pistol pete maravich type of player, but not excepionally quick or fast….although he left GP in the dust.

    If youtube were around while Tim was playing though, you’d see him embarass QUITE a few more people than we’ve seen in these clips.

    He could pull it off anywhere, anytime, on anyone and was guaranteed a layup or J. Even after he blew out his knee he was still crossing guys over, although not w/ the same explosiveness or regularity. I noticed a couple of miami heat highlights in there! gotta give it to Timmy. Had his knee been good his entire career, he’d have been alot more heralded.

    Even though J.Will got busy Tim Hardaway was the originator and I had to go with the man that made the move so crucial. He was an OG anklebreaker was making people stumble hard body from college to the NBA.

    I remeber when J.Will broke Gary Payton off and that almost made me vote for him but T. Hardaway is still one of the top handlers of all time. And among the top 3 in the killer crossover IMO.

    Come on now all Hardaway had was a fast crossover like an upgraded version of Jamal Crawford. JWill had a plethora of moves especially on the break and would just leave defenders stunned. Forget about popularity, JWIll had better crossover moves than Hardaway hand down.
