Allen Iverson arrived 90 minutes late to his Hall of Fame press conference

Published Add your comment

Allen Iverson was a player who divided opinion during his career and went through stages of love and hatred with the NBA community.

However, one thing that never changed was that the Philadelphia 76ers legend was always true to himself.

Throughout his whole basketball career, the 2001 Most Valuable Player has never changed, and that still stands true today as he enters the Hall of Fame.

The 41-year-old is part of a stacked class - alongside fellow former NBA superstars Shaquille O'Neal and Yao Ming- to enter the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2016 and has continued to show some of his old traits from his days in the association.

Despite it being Iverson's ceremony, the guard was 90 minutes late to Thursday's press conference. The show had to go on without the 11-time All-Star despite Jerry Colangelo's stall tactics in an attempt to bide some time. His delay was put down to travel issue but when did turn up he was sporting typical A.I. attire.

A New York baseball cap, black t-shirt, faded baggy jeans and cluster of jewellery. We'd expect nothing else from Iverson, and on his big day, it is good to see that the first ballot Hall of Famer will never change.
