NFL players just can't get enough of the Philadelphia 76ers.
After Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper paid homage to Markelle Fultz on Thanksgiving with a one-of-a-kind celebration mimicking his poor free throw shooting, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett did a touchdown celebration today paying tribute to perhaps the most famous single step in Sixers history.
Allen Iverson's step over Tyronn Lue in the 2001 NBA Finals, to be specific.
While Lockett got to play the starring role of Iverson, his teammate David Moore played the unenviable role of Lue. It was pretty well executed with the jump shot, step and nasty look back.
Did Tyler Lockett really just do a A.I./TyLue celebration? 😂 pic.twitter.com/yKxVqJDmZb— CBS Sports (@CBSSports) November 25, 2018
Seattle is in a tight contest with the Carolina Panthers midway through the third quarter at the time of this posting.
Sixers fans remember this one all too well:
