Happy 40th birthday to one of my all time favorite basketball players Allen Iverson.
Almost everyday this summer I’ve been watching his highlights and just missing the dude play in the NBA. Iverson had the best and sickest handles ever in my opinion and had the most heart and passion out of anyone to ever play in the league.
It sucks Iverson never won a championship even though he deserved one. Iverson gave us one of the most memorable press conferences in NBA history with his “practice rant”, he also underwent a sad and disheartening trial and spent time in prison for something he did not do, and Iverson went bankrupt after he retired from basketball, but life and sports are a tough battle. Hope he gets into the Hall of Fame one day because he absolutely deserves to be there.
Lets dedicate this day to Allen Iverson on his 40th birthday.
