Iverson is the perfect example of how a self-centered, selfish, "me-first" player can become one of the greats...but cannot win a championship.
Kobe has taken a backseat to Shaq, Jordan has on numerous occasions taken a backseat to Pippen, because it was all in the best interest of the team...and above all, winning. Iverson was always "the man", and no one could shine his shoes, and this is why players weren't flocking to play with him in an effort to win a title.
Iverson sold tickets, put up points, was a joy to watch, and is most definitely a first-ballot hall of famer. I would also place him in the top 15 guards of all time.
