Sure is an opinion, a completely stupid one.

Iverson wouldn't be in the top 30 of all time.

 

What has top 30 all time got to do with it, stupid?

 

Pound-for-pound, he is easily among the elite considering his size (6'0'', 165pound), heart as well as virtually any metric.

That is flat out idiotic.

Uneducated and completely ignorant of history.


Tell us what you really think please lol. You must be a real joy to discuss basketball with, really respectful of the opinions of others.

this is pound for pound the dumbest quote ever from an athlete.

However, LeBron is building up the Sixers' home opener, versus the Heat...because that's when Allen Iverson is having his retirement ceremony.

bingo.

Iverson had his moments but isn't the best 165 pounds at 6 feet. Hes behind Isiah and John

Well, that's up for debate. What can't be questioned is that Iverson, pound-for-pound, is among the very best.

Do people here know what the statement 'pound for pound' actually means, it is completely irrelevant in any other sport aside from boxing. Like it doesn't make any sense at all, even if you only qualify little guys, it literally is a weird comment.

This. I grew up watching the guy and he was a great scorer but not much else. Was a volume shooter. John Stockton and Isiah Thomas were easily better players in my opinion. Also MJ came in the league at around 195 so 30 more pounds then AI and did a hell of a lot of things better and more effectively then AI, as a rookie I would take MJ over AI's best years.

John Stocton a better passer and offensive scheme guy than AI.  Isiah Thomas a better dribbler and cross over than AI. AI are better scorers than both Isiah Thomas and Stockton.   Micheal Jordan a better scorer than AI, a better rebounder than AI, a better defender than AI, a better body than AI, a better mindset than AI, a better teamate than AI. The only thing AI have better than Jordan is speed.

 

So i dont know what this pound for pound mean but  there is a reason why AI couldn't get a job in the NBA even when he was only 35 which players like Nash can still play at a high level at 35.   People tend to forget that AI didn't retire this year.  In perspective, he actually retires 5 years ago when the NBA said he suck so he had to go over seas to play and even then the other teams wouldn't want him. So he end up being broke.

Well...unquestionably the best "practice" player ever. :laughing:

 

But i'd put him up there ahead of isiah thomas. Thomas is about Kevin Johnson level imo. Another very underrated guy.

 

And Iverson is still among the top handful of career ave. scoring leader guys.  He was an amazing player. I just wish he would have had fewer injuries and lasted at the high level he was playing at the first 9 years of his career

It's crazy just how many of AI's infamous crossovers were actually travels. In today's game, especially this season with the emphasis more than ever on traveling in general as well as carrying the ball & what not, he'd be severely hampered to say the least.
