I love this video, with an Iverson crossover just knocking down a Chinese defender in an exhibition game, because it’s such a throwback to a time when Iverson was the most entertaining player in the NBA. He will always be near the top of that all-time list for me.
But please, please people don’t take a 17-second clip of what Iverson can do against a Chinese league defender in an exhibition game and extrapolate that Iverson can still do that in the NBA. Different world, different games. He’s not coming back.
Miami is going to be a lot of fun to watch this season (if they can stay healthy).
They’ve got athletic, active players who want to run, who move off the ball, and they have good passers. For example, watch Chris Bosh go between the legs to Dwyane Wade in the Heat’s preseason game Sunday.
Bosh had 14 points, and Wade had a dozen, but Charlotte won the exhibition.
Blake Griffin pre-game dunk knocks down shot clock
The Clippers went north of the border to take on the Raptors in an exhibition game, but it was on the West Coast of Canada in one of the world’s prettiest cities — Vancouver. The two played at the Rogers Arena.
Where, they may want to upgrade the shot clocks behind the backboards. Watch over the shoulder of the Clippers announcers as Griffin dunks in warmups.
