Rodney Stucky Crosses Up Iverson - Fair Play Or Push-Off
Its hard to tell from this angle, but whatchya thing?
By the impact of Iverson hitting the floor, i think that might've been a pushoff
I think it goes both ways like Jordan/Russell. Iverson or Sixers fans probably say it is a push, Piston or Stucky fans probably think it was fair. I think it was a correct no call, but i'm not going to deny there was a little contant.
Don't get me wrong, I'm really happy for Rodney Stuckey and all, but Allen Iverson had one of the greatest crossovers of all time! OF ALL TIME! It's too bad the NBA banned it though. You're right though, it is hard to tell from that angle. If only they could slow it down a little bit.
I posted this a day ago and I was asking the same question, thanks magikknick, because I couldn't really tell at all either and needed more opinions.
The angle does not let you see Stuckey's left arm. It didn't look like much went into the push if he did push. Iverson's fall came mostly because he lost his balance. It doesn't look like there was excessive contact.
That is hard to tell. Im a stuckey fan, but im sure there was some contatct there, but probably the right call. But, if any of you guys watch the pistons regularly, you'd know that suckey does that crossover almost every night. it's kinda his go to move, so ill give him the benefit of the doubt. But that is hard to guage.
I am a AI fan and after watching him his whole career he does tend to flop and he was off balance combined with the contact and strength of Stuckey i think he just fell but did not get crossed.
Def goes both ways
