    Yeah, definitely nowhere near top-30 let alone top-20. Top-50 is also out of the question. I can quite easily name 60+ players that I'd take before reaching Allen's name. ESPECIALLY if we're just talking about peak play, performance wise.

    Iverson took just under 28 shots and 10 free throws a game to score 31.4ppg. Say that those 10 free throws are all on field goal attempts Iverson missed, that's 5 possessions right there. Plus the 28 shots. Plus his 4.0 turnovers per game that season. Another four possessions. Meaning, you could quite easily paint a picture saying that Allen Iverson needed 37 possessions to score under 32 points. That is in his highest scoring season.

    Now that's not a very great analysis, but that's a very dumbed down version. Iverson's inefficiency leaves him off of any All-Time list. The guy was not a good basketball player.

    Here's a quick list off the top of my head
    Jordan, Kareem, Wilt, Shaq, Duncan, Lebron, Magic, Kobe, Russell, Bird, Moses, Oscar, Robinson, West, Garnett, Erving, Nowitzki, Malone, Barkley, Wade, Durant, Pippen, Drexler, Baylor, Havlicek, McHale, Stockton, Wilkins, Gervin, Ewing, Walton, Paul, Thomas, Frazier, Payton, Hardaway, Nash, Kidd, Barry, Miller, Allen, Carter, McGrady, Hill, Mourning, Lanier, McAdoo, Pierce, Dumars, Pettit, Kemp, Moncrief, King, Maravich, Dantley, Billups, Parker, Ginobili, Mullins, English, Curry, Williams, I think that's 60.

    And there's a bunch of guys that have short careers whose peaks were better as well. Brandon Roy, Derrick Rose just to name two (and that's assuming Rose never plays again).

    I was an Iverson fan growing up. But scouting and analysis has changed. Evaluating production on the court has increased exponentially. Iverson in today's game with advanced defenses and the value of efficiency just would not cut it, not for a second.

    He's really nowhere near it. Iverson was a polarizing player. His ability to get a shot off in traffic, take contact, get into the paint while having a long career was inspiring. But that doesn't mean he was a great player. His efficiency was AWFUL, and unlike other all-timers (Jason Kidd comes to mind) he had nothing else in his game that could make up for it (defense, exceptional playmaking ability, etc)
