Crossover Chronicles is a relatively new blog, so we decided it was a good idea to introduce you to the crew.  We're doing that in a new feature called "Writer-Palooza."  For the next few days, we will feature one writer, introducing him to you via an orignal piece, his favorite basketball video, and a wildcard post on any topic that he wants.

Today we feature Brendan Bowers.  You can find him on Twitter here.

Mark Price was so good back in the day. His career was overshadowed by Hall Of Fame Point Guards like Isiah Thomas who played in his same Eastern Conference, and his quest for that illusive championship was cut short in Cleveland by a particular shot hit by the greatest player in NBA history. But for those who truly watched Price, they knew how incredibly good he was. 

 

Which was something that Allen Iverson came to find out the hard way, long after the prime of Mark Price's playing days had been completed. As a member of the Golden State Warriors then in 1997, this video is a classic in my book for so many reasons.

Mark Price asks why this little punk is talking to me in regards to Iverson. The move he puts on AI is nasty. Price leaves his shooting hand up and mean mugs Iverson on his way back down the court. Almost fifteen years later, Mark's hair looks funny in the video I think. Mark Price sang Gospel music. That's not part of the video, but I just mentioned it for additional context.

Mark Price played twelve seasons in the NBA, those first nine with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He averaged 8 or more assists per game for the season four times, averaged over 18 points per game on the year three times, and finished with career totals of 15.2 points, 6.7 assists, and 2.0 rebounds on .40% shooting from three point range. He had a lot of highlights in the process, but this one, during the twilight of his career in Golden State, it's my favorite.
