    NBA Players React To Allen Iverson's Retirement; Nothing but RESPECT!

    To anyone that tries to shun this mans legacy and lables him negatively....just check out the reactions from some of the greatest ever below...this shows that you idiots that have never touched a ball in your life can dog a man for shooting too much all day....it takes ABILITY and the confidence of your coach and team to get shots off .

    Nothing but respect and love for AI last night from Kobe, to KD, to LeBron...they even call him the greatest ever.

    the guy was an icon and tremendously formative. i'm sure a TON of current players grew up idolizing him. i did as well. he and t-mac were the only basketball shoes i ever bought. i had a ton of AI apparel. his legacy will never waver in those regards.


    but as a basketball player there were some chinks in his game. it is what it is. those guys all obviously respect the hell out of him, as they should....and on the day he got his jersey hoisted they had some hugely praiseworthy things to say about him. maybe some hyperbole, but whatever.


    let me ask your, randy, where do you rank him all time?

    Do you seriously believe that AI is the greatest ever? Are you saying he never clashed with coaches and teammates over his poor shot selection and inconsistent ability to run an offense? And sure some people might have had an issue with him shooting so much, but the biggest issue was always that he MISSED alot.
    Yo Kobe, get at me bro, we'd have a good time, man

    i used to think that but what players have said about him, Lebron, CP3 has changed my mind. Those two players arguably have the highest bb IQ in the league and Lebron said he was his favourite player along with Jordan. I am going to take Lebron's word of how good he was.

    Also, does anyone think they would trash him or put his career in complete perspective on the day he gets his jersey retired? Im pretty sure nobody is that much of a dick. Maybe Rick Barry.

    What did you used to think and what did they say?

    Iverson is your favorite players favorite player. People like to recreate history but at a certain point he was in the best player in the league conversation and definitely the most popular.

    He didnt get MVP by accident.

    nobody is going to bad mouth a guy during a jersey retirement thing,nobody is that much of a dick.he was one of my favorite players to watch ever,but he was massively overrated by his fans because of that streetball style and the whole persona(favoring style over substance).he was good ,but a lower tier "great"

    What exactly are we recreating? I dont think anyone ever said he wasn't popular or beloved for his size, heart and style, just like nobody denies that he had poor practice habits, or that his attitude/ignorance prevented him from staying in the league while he obviously still had something left in the tank. He was a gifted athlete who couldn't retain his dominance because it was a game based on speed and misdirection as opposed to efficient shooting/passing.

    And he got an MVP that even he admits belongs to Shaq. Can we take it away because he said that or would that be recreating history in a manner you dont like?

    He was never the best player in the league, not even close. Duncan, KG and Shaq were always CLEARLY better.

    You can maybe make an argument for top 10.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    Shots were fired in the OP, when he called AI detractors idiots.

    I love AI. If only his fanatics didn't overrate the **** out of him. Believe me, I still have his shoes, I love that he pretty much brought back throwback jerseys for a period back then. I loved his heart and hustle.

    Just hate his fanboys.
