We are definitely not talking about practice! That's right; Allen Iverson has made it back in to the news again.
The former MVP and 11-time NBA All-Star will have a documentary released in the next few days dubbed, "Iverson."
It will detail Mr. Iverson through his entire life from his time in high school all the way through his NBA career.
The film has already been confirmed to be around 97 minutes and has most basketball fans eager to watch. A.I.'s career was one of many successes and disappointments; He was a very aggressive guard who relished at the thought of getting to the rim.
One could point to Iverson and say that without him, there is no player like Kyrie Irving, Russell Westbrook, Derrick Rose, or Damian Lillard today.
He also brought with him an attitude which many coaches could not or didn't know how to deal with including former Philadelphia 76ers coach Larry Brown.
Iverson was a star through and through, in a time when fans were looking to find the next "Micheal Jordan-esque" player, A.I. took the mold and flipped it on it's head.
He was only listed as being 6'0 feet tall, 165 pounds; and most GMs and coaches thought he was even shorter than that.
Iverson's influence on fashion and shoe wear in the NBA was vast and athletes everywhere wanted to copy the star.he was a media hurricane.
At the end of the day, no one can deny that Allen Iverson wasn't one of the most dynamic and explosive players in the game ever and changed the game tremendously. "Iverson" is being released this weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival.
