Michael Jordan certainly liked to play mind games with his opponents during his career. Allen Iverson learned this during his first interaction with Jordan. A recent interview featured Iverson revealing that expletives were thrown towards him by Jordan when meeting.
“The first time I ever talked to him was that year, playing in the rookie game. I’ll never forget it, because he said, ‘What’s up, you little bitch?’ I’ll never forget it. I looked at him like — *puzzled look* — ‘Alright, man.’”
Iverson scored the sweetest revenge when crossing over Jordan and punishing him with a rare moment of embarrassment.
