On this day, March 12th, 1997, this rookie made a legend look mortal for a few seconds. Watching NBA games in the 90s, I swear some of these young folks have no clue about Jordan’s dominance and his larger than life presence on the court. To see Iverson make Jordan look human for 5 seconds was absolutely amazing.
Been a fan of Iverson since he was at Georgetown and playing in the backcourt with Victor Page & company. This moment will also have a special place in my heart even as a Knicks fan.
