BHM 2014 Honors: Allen Iverson

Let's get one thing straight, Jordan is the greatest basketball player ever. Don't let anyone get cute and tell you otherwise. If LeBron was really the best, he woulda been in Space Jam. Now that that's settled, let's talk about one of my favorite players ever, Allen Iverson. AI did so many things well: he scored at will, he led the league in steals every year, and he had the best cornrows in the NBA. Of course, there were some things he didn't do so well: rap, manage money, show up to practice. But we ain't talking 'bout practice, we talking about Black History Month and during BHM, we focus on the good things. We focus on the lightning quicks, the stellar handles, the epic press conferences, the throwback in-between game, and the fact that a 6-foot tall guard was the greatest scorer of his generation. With that said, does AI deserve some BHM honors? I think you know The Answer.
