    Used to play loads of basketball back in school, but outside of school there was nowhere to play it and not many people to play it with, so I haven't properly been able to do it for about 4 years!

    I loved AI haha, his practice rant was absolutely unbelievable. Off the court he was a douche but on the court he left it all on there.

    Guys a bit coocoo. Although credit to him he did start a revolution. Everyone was wearing Iverson jerseys and bands and tattoos etc

    Dunno why he was so against practice. Given todays PGs, I think Iverson would have a tough time. Not sure who was there against him during his time.

    He started the whole hip hop revolution haha. He is the reason there's a dress code now In the NBA :rofl:

    Gary Payton, Mike Bibby(Yes there was a time he didn't suck), Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Chauncy Billups, Gilbert Arenas, Sam Cassell. But yeah there are more PG's. I dunno I think he would be okay. His game was blowing by players and driving to the hoop as well as throwing up some poor shots haha. There were more quality Centres to stop him back then as well

    Payton was on the decline
    Bibby was there I'll give you that
    Kidd rose up after Iverson
    Nash was after him
    Billups after him
    Arenas way after him (I'd pick him over Iverson tbh)
    Sam Cassell wasn't THAT good

    This era has probably the most PGs ever. He maybe alright but it's be really tough for him. Iverson shot pretty poorly. As for quality centres, I can only think of Shaws name. Kwame brown doesn't count

    Yeah there definitely weren't as good PG's back in the early 2000's but I still think Iverson would be okay. Iverson was good right up until around 2005ish I think.


    Had , Shaq, Tim Duncan, Ben Wallace, Yao (when he was healthy), Miller, Mourning, Mutumbo. Hell even Ilgauskus was pretty good haha

    I think the best offer he had was D-League with whoever the Mavs team in there is

    No need was going to give him a starting role or even a secondary one tbh. The d-league was his best bet considering hes been out for 4-5 years...

    Iverson was the biggest athlete, he really did all this to himself. During his time he was one of the biggest, if not the biggest endorsements
