If these plays would have happened in the NBA instead of the PBA then you can bet it would be appearing next to a JaVale McGee clip on Shaqtin a Fool but since Solomon Mercado’s crossover fails happened in the Pinoy league they just get featured on Ballislife next to an old video of Vince Carter injuring himself on a crossover attempt.
The crossover troubles started for Mercado in the 3rd quarter when LA Tenorio broke his ankles and hit a jumper. Then in OT, Mercado tried to return the favor to the opposing team but somehow almost broke his ankles again by attempting a crossover.
Since we are talking about crossover fails we have to mention Vince Carter, who had underrated handles, injuring himself while attempting to show off those handles.
