When it comes to naming your top five players of all-time, it can be incredibly difficult. And so it proved for Allen Iverson.
The Philadelphia 76ers legend, who would be in a high percentage of top fives around the world, was asked by SLAM who he would include in his own, and the Answer struggled to complete a team.
However, his indecision gave us an insight into the type of players AI enjoys watching in the modern era after the question was altered due to his struggle.
Some of the usual names were present, Iverson started with "“Mike [Jordan], Shaq [O'Neal], Kobe [Bryant], LeBron [James]…” but when he couldn't pick a fifth - well, there are a lot of names to choose from - he was given another question.
When asked which athletes currently competing in the NBA he likes to watch, the former MVP said: “Steph [Curry], [Russell] Westbrook, Kyrie [Irving], [Kevin] Durant, Melo [Anthony], that list goes on and on.”
It's not the first time Iverson has praised the likes of Curry, Westbrook and Irving, and it surely won't be the last. As a guy who broke the mould of the traditional NBA himself, these players have taken on the mantle.
Especially the Golden State Warriors point guard, who is leading the charge as the way basketball is played changes forever. He, along with others, has popularised the three-point shot to unbelievable levels and there's no telling where it could go next.
As for Westbrook, well it's no surprise the Answer likes him, who doesn't?
