Allen Iverson, Hall of Famer.

Courtesy NBA.com, here’s a look back at his peak year’s with the Sixers, starting with the crossover on Michael Jordan. These are years that went on to inspire Stephen Curry, among many others.

 

NBA players react to NCAA Finals wild finish

Villanova’s win over North Carolina was as wild an ending as you are ever going to see.

Don’t take my word for it, just watch Charles Barkley.

It wasn’t just Barkley freaking out, check out the reaction of NBA players to the final seconds of that game.

First, it was North Carolina guard Marcus Paige with a double-clutch three that Stephen Curry would have found ridiculous.

But the game wasn’t over because the fat lady hadn’t sung — or the fat Barkley hadn’t leapt around the set — and as time expired Villanova’s Kris Jenkins knocked down a three to give his team the win.

Watch Michael Jordan congratulate Allen Iverson on making Hall of Fame

Allen Iverson is deservedly in the Hall of Fame.

Iverson seemed humbled by the experience, and among the things he put out on Instagram was when Michael Jordan congratulated him (Iverson had been at a Jordan event).

Me and the best that ever did it!!!

He’s not crying: Michael Jordan’s reaction to Villanova game winner

Leave a comment

Michael Jordan had great seats for the NCAA Final matchup in Houston Monday between his beloved North Carolina Tar Heels and the Villanova Wildcats (shocking, I know). He got to see a dramatic game — one won by the Wildcats on Kris Jenkins smooth jumper from three as time expired.

The Internet exploded with crying Jordan memes. Some of them kind of funny.

Jordan’s actual reaction? He thought it was a good shot.

Stephen Curry has made 378 threes this season, the most any player has made in one season in NBA history.

He’s also just 22 threes short of 400 with five games to play. Curry averages 5.1 threes a game, which means he should make it past the big round number, but it’s going to be pretty close. You think Curry wants the number?

Just one question: What is chucking for Curry? Outside 45 feet?
