18 years ago, holy shit. Allen Iverson was can’t miss TV every time he touched the court. I was one of the many white kids running around with his all black jersey and practicing his moves in the driveway. When they retired his number a few years back I was almost brought to tears. Countless memories of this little dude just taking on giants.
Maybe one of the best was the 2001 All-Star game. Iverson had a game high 25 points, 15 of which he dumped in during the fourth quarter. The East came back from 21 points down with 9 minutes left thanks to Iverson’s jaw dropping performance.
I know you’re thinking, it’s the All-Star game. True BUT in 2001 they still played defense during these games.
