Many of us here at The Hoop Doctors are diehard fans of “The Answer” Allen Iverson. In my mind he is pound-for-pound, one of the best players in NBA history, and is quite possibly the best player 6’0 and under this league has ever seen(with all due respect to Nate “Tiny” Archibald). In this generation, their has never been a player who wore their heart on their sleave, whether good or bad, like Iverson. Once he finally decides to hang it up, Allen will undoubtedly be a 1st ballot Hall of Famer as the Sixers will surely make sure that no other player ever wears his signature #3 jersey again. Now that he has just retired un-retired and gone back to Philadelphia where it all started, what better time to honor the original A.I., Allen Iverson with his very own multi-part Player Rewind Series, featuring some hidden gems caught on video showcasing “The Answer’s” biggest and best moments in his HS, NCAA, and NBA career.
Part Seven – The Press Conferences
Allen has always been good for a great sound byte or quote, since he never holds back and lets everyone know just exactly how he feels. Sometimes that’s a good thing, sometimes not. With the Sixers, he never was shy about opening up and letting his emotions flow, whether it was criticizing his coaching staff or the officials. In this segment we will take a look back at some of A.I.’s most memorable press conferences. Allen will be enlightening us on practice, his relationship with Michael Jackson, and why he came back to Philly.
