Allen Iverson was one of those players that you either hated or you loved. He had point guard size, but was mostly a shooter and boy did he shoot a lot. One thing about AI is he gave 100% every game he played and that is the reason his career ended a few years earlier than it should of. Iverson would take it hard to the hoop no matter who was protecting the rim. At 6’0″ and 165 lbs he was pound for pound one of the best players in NBA history.
There is no doubt in my mind that Iverson is a Hall of Famer and I know that people will disagree with that and that is there prerogative, but you won’t change my mind.
So Allen Iverson thank you for your career and giving players your size a hope to make it to the NBA!
