Crossover to Stardom

Iverson was criticized a lot during his rookie season: his crossovers were being called for a traveling violation, he was called a ball hog, he was held responsible for the Sixers poor season and he was condemned for not showing respect to NBA players. To make matters worse Michael Jordan also made a comment stating that Iverson must show respect to him and his team (the Chicago Bulls).Fortunately for A.I, much of those negative comments stopped on March 12, 1997. On that memorable day  Iverson let his game do the talking; which sent a message that The Answer” needs to be respected. A.I scored 37 points and crossed over to stardom when he “shook” Michael Jordan.
