Most Ridiculous Crossovers of the 2012-13 NBA Season

This has been an NBA season chock full of crossovers. It seems we get some backpedaling defender biting the dust or choosing the wrong side of a ball-handler to attack night in and night out.

The result has been some of the sickest crossovers in years, with magnificent ball-handlers coming out of the woodwork in every shape and size.

While the high-flying dunks might get all of the attention, it's the crossovers that take the breath away from a crowd, and that's an accomplishment.

Any old jam can make a crowd of people get on their feet and cheer (although it takes a special one to make the Internet break, something that's happened a few times this season), but you really have to get a defender in a bad place to get a crowd to realize just how horribly he was abused.

Sure, making a guy fall down is an easy indication of a terrific crossover, but sometimes it's the ones who don't fall down, who continually try to keep up with the dribbler but can't, who really give you an idea of how good a ball-handler is.

So I've gone back thorough the annals of time—at least back to October of 2012—in order to pluck out the most dazzling dribbles of this quickly ending NBA season.

Because each ball-handler wasn't quite given his due the first time around, I've decided to give each a reward for putting on a show and punish the defender for their inability to stay afoot.
