Allen Iverson, former Sixers great, recently signed on to play in a game against Stephon Marbury's Beijing Ducks in China. It has been well-documented that Iverson has been going through some financial difficulties, which is most likely the reason why he is playing this game in China. 

When Allen Iverson played for the 76ers he had one of the quickest crossovers in the game, often making defenders fall over. Everyone remembers when he crossed over the great Michael Jordan as a rookie, but here is an even more impressive video of him making Antonio Daniels fall twice:

There are many more videos of Iverson making professional basketball players look stupid, but NBA fans haven't seen those highlight plays from Iverson in a while. In this video, Iverson puts on a crossover against a Chinese defender, and makes him fall. Here is the video from China:

The 37-year-old clearly still has it in terms of his dribbling ability. However, Iverson does miss the jump shot after crossing his defender, which would seem impossible ten years ago.

Allen Iverson is still looking for one last chance in the NBA, but due to his past attitude issue and his aging body that possibility is looking more and more unlikely. Luckily, Philadelphia fans were able to watch one of the greatest scorers ever for 10 years of their lives.
