Allen Iverson breaks Tim Hardaway's ankles with epic comment

Allen Iverson breaks Tim Hardaway's ankles with epic comment

Remember when Tim Hardaway adamantly claimed he was the originator of the crossover, not Allen Iverson, and that the Sixers legend "carried the basketball?"

For a refresher, here's Hardaway's full quote from March during an interview with NBA.com's Scott Howard-Cooper.

Well, Iverson provided the Answer and it's safe to say he crossed up Hardaway on this one.

In a great piece by Bleacher Report's Jonathan Abrams published on Tuesday, Iverson was asked about Hardaway's comment.

"Yeah, I heard about it," Iverson said.

Abrams asked if A.I. had any response.

"I carried my crossover all the way into the Hall of Fame," Iverson said. "So, there you go."

Mic drop.

As we all know, Iverson was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame last September.

Hardaway, a 2017 finalist, is still waiting for his call after being a finalist in 2014 and 2015, as well.

Iverson, always a fantastic quote, gave a speech for the ages at his induction.

"My relationship with the fans in Philadelphia is like no other," he said, via CSNPhilly.com's Jessica Camerato. "Thank y'all for the support over the years. Y'all let me grow. Y'all let me make my mistakes. Never jumped off the bandwagon, continued to support me like true fans are supposed to.

"The ones that stuck by me throughout my journey, I love y'all. I love the fact that now y'all can walk around and stick y'all chest out and say y'all Hall of Famers."

Dion Waiters talks about loss, irrational confidence, and the Philly in him

Dion Waiters talks about loss, irrational confidence, and the Philly in him

Dion Waiters pens a must-read piece in The Players' Tribune that touches on his irrational confidence and his relationship with the city of Philadelphia and how the two are intertwined. 

It's just a fun read and a wonderful glimpse into his personality both on and off the court.

He talks about Pat Riley like he's Robert De Niro's character, Sam "Ace" Rothstein, in the movie Casino.

He talks about how he turned a playground rival into a best friend as a teenager and had to deal later in life with tremendous loss and how in Philly, you just become numb to it.

He talks about how getting out of Philly saved him.

He talks about playing Kevin Durant one-on-one during their days in Oklahoma City and how he beat KD plenty of times.

He talks about mean mugging for the Miami Heat after hitting a dagger over the Golden State Warriors this season... He writes:

People ask me all the time, "What’s that mean?"

It don’t mean nothing.

It’s just the Philly in me.

You really should just go read the whole thing.

Trust the … Lego? Reddit user reveals life-like Lego version of Joel Embiid

Trust the … Lego? Reddit user reveals life-like Lego version of Joel Embiid

He calls himself "The Process."

He is a main piece of The Process.

And now there's a Lego version of The Process' poster child.

Yes -- thanks to Redditor user dweg1999 -- we have a picture of what Joel Embiid would look like if, yes, he was built of Legos.

After sitting out his first two years in the NBA because of injuries, Embiid burst onto the scene and became an instant star for the Sixers. A piece they can build around both on the court and off it. He's charismatic who knows how to use social media.

Embiid is a special blend of greatness on the court and marketable off it. If he can stay healthy -- his season was cut short because of another one and he will be limited again in 2017-18 -- the Sixers have their guy to build around. Add in a Ben Simmons, a more experienced Dario Saric, potentially two more lottery picks -- at least one more -- and next season will be a whole lot of fun.

But for now, as we wait for the May 16 draft lottery, we are stuck checking out Lego versions of Joel Embiid. If only we were that good with Legos ourselves.
