Allen Iverson's influence on the game of basketball is striking.

The former Philadelphia 76ers guard paved the way for the modern day NBA with his attitude, dress sense and demeanour in the early 21st century. 

Iverson took a lot of flack for the way he handled himself, but as time went on, people appreciated the 2001 MVP for just being himself. 

After entering the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame last weekend, 'The Answer' has been on a media tour, and his latest stop was on 'The Late Show' with Stephen Colbert.

Iverson spoke about how he has influenced the NBA and helped it become the game we see today, and also expressed the importance of Michael Jordan on his career.

The Chicago Bulls legend and Charlotte Hornets owner truly is the greatest to ever play the game, and Iverson insisted he would not be where he is now was it not for the six-time champion.

"If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have ever been a basketball player," Iverson said. "I would never have had the vision. I truly wanted to be like Mike."
