What, specifically, do you remember about Allen Iverson’s tenure in the NBA Is it A.I.’s infamous “Practice” rant What about his one-of-a-kind moves on the Reebok commercials that many of us tried to mimic Or maybe, it was his cross-and-step-over move on Tyronn Lue in game 1 of the 2001 NBA Finals. All of these moments remind us of the greatness and the shamelessness Iverson possessed on and off the court.
However, one of, if not the most memorable Allen Iverson instant of them all saw the longtime Reebok brand member taking on His Airness in an epic 1-on-1 moment in time on March 12th, 1997, 15 years ago to this day. Wearing the Reebok Question, A.I. crossed Michael Jordan not once, but twice at the top of the key before a standing crowd in Philly. Is this still the most memorable crossover in the past 15 years View the video clip below, along with a photo of the Reebok Question Iverson wore during this moment.
NIKE, Inc. - 1 on 1 with Burn Rubber's Rick Williams
Nice Kicks: Your shop, Burn Rubber, has now been serving the Metro Detroit sneaker enthusiasts since 2004, and this is your first major collaboration with a sneaker brand. How does it feel to have New Balance, one of your personal favorite brands, collaborate with you for your first major joint effort
Rick Williams: It’s amazing. It’s almost unreal. I was talking to somebody the other day and just telling them how it is such a blessing. So many people want this opportunity, and for us to be blessed with it is amazing. We are definitely grateful for the opportunity, and we’re grateful that people loved it. It sold out pretty much everywhere. It’s just a real good situation. It feels real good.
Nice Kicks: In addition to this Burn Rubber x New Balance MT580 release, you also involved your brand in a major campaign called Detroit Riots earlier this year, which was inspired by the city s Riots of 1967. Which opportunity will leave the biggest impact on the Metro Detroit area
Rick Williams: I think they were two different things. I think they both have a big impact in their own way. The Detroit Riots gave us the opportunity to get with a company (Acapulco Gold) that we respected and love, and we wanted to bring light to an event that happened in Detroit. Not really bring light to it but raise awareness. This shoe, in contrast, was more about Burn Rubber and will introduce Burn Rubber to the world. Not everybody knew about us, but now many more people know about us, seeing as though the shoe released worldwide, not just in the US.
