Allen Iverson's 21-point comeback

Football News

Throughout his career, Allen Iverson epitomized the underdog. Despite his relatively short stature, he made up for it with quickness, talent and natural grit. If you're looking back on Iverson's career, his performance in the 2001 All-Star Game should be evidence of the aforementioned qualities.

Despite facing a 21-point deficit in the fourth quarter, Iverson ignited a miracle-like comeback to give the East a 111-110 victory. During the final nine minutes in the fourth quarter, Iverson scored 15 points and finished with 25 for the game.

Thanks to his timely scoring and clutch baskets from Stephon Marbury, the East prevailed in what will be remembered as one of the greatest comebacks in All-Star Game history.

While there wasn't a single memorable moment, this edges out Michael Jordan's last shot in the 2003 game for it's sheer desire to win even in an exhibition, and he was the MVP.
