I was just watching some footage on Youtube and I forgot how many people got embarassed in the NBA by someone else showing off their ball handling skills. With that being said what was the most memorable ankle breaking moments. Excuse me if I forget some.

My personal favorites:

Crawford shake and bake on Deron Williams. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vz5DXIezqr4)

Crawford absolutely fakes out Hinrich. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Crs-QT1DERo)

I think that Crawford may have the best move ever invented in the League... but wut Dwade did to Price was embarassing... the Iverson on Daniels and Jordan are both nice too

Iverson vs Jordan should absolutely be running away with this.

Not the best crossover, but that was epic and by far the most memorable.

I agree it should be Iverson/Jordan, its not the best though AI just got him so slide twice but MJ still almost blocked his shot.

Some of my favorite more recent ones:
Kobe on Marion

Iverson on Jordan was memorable but just because it was Jordan.
Daniels falling twice was only because he was already on the ground when Iverson crossed him again.
But what the heck are you doing all the way out of bounds when the ball and your ankles are by the 3pt arc??
If i were on the wrong end of this crossover, i wouldof been most embarrased.

Ray Allen is too old to stand up, it had nothing to do with the crossover.

Crawford travelled against hinrich.

Jordan almost blocked iversons shot! He did not get "ROCKED" by any means.

The most memorable ones for me is when Allen Iverson yammed Micheal Jordan, and also when Ben Gordon yammed Troy Hudson. Both of those were great. The better one was the Ben Gordon ankle breaker, but the one with Allen Iverson is very memorable because he did it to Micheal Jordan.

still think that timmy's killer crossover is the best of all-time, by far the most affective. its not the most flashy by anymeans but it was 100% unstoppable even with two blown out knees. he invented that **** before everyone else.

08-25-2009, 03:35 PM
This isn't a cross over but I remember 1 time, Iverson was at the top of the 3 point line holding the ball. He started going to the right and Bobby Jackson went left instead(like 7 feet) thinking he was going to go that way.

False. Reggie Miller actually shoved MJ by the throat and no call was made. Karl Malone set an illegal screen when Stockton hit the 3 on Houston in Game 6. Kobe elbowed Bibby in the nose and busted it and bibby got called for the foul.

The only thing I get outta ankle breakers are the defenders are playing defense.Its impossible to get your ankles broken if you don't play defense.I play in Carson and see the Filipino kids with handles play.I let them blow by me and swat them like flies.Oh yeah they can't shoot either.So let them shoot but don't forget to box out.

Didn't read the whole thread to see if someone else mentioned this (and I still woulda voted AI ripping Jordan as the best), but AI dropping Tyron Lue in the '01 NBA Finals, nailing a 3, and then triumphantly stomping over Lue who was still on the ground has to be up there. That was amazing and one of the biggest plays in game 1 of the finals. Granted it was the only game the Sixers won but still, wow.
