If you watch basketball, then it’s probably safe to say you’re an Allen Iverson fan. While never discussed in the general Greatest Of All Time conversations — along with the Jordans, Birds, Magics, Wilts, Russells & Jabbars of the world — Iverson was a player who, at his peak, had no peer. Remember when Iverson broke both of Jordan’s ankles? Man, that was awesome. Or when he single-handedly threw the entire 76ers club, and the city of Philadelphia, on his back and carried them to the NBA Finals, only to lose to a absurdly more talented Lakers squad? Well I remember when Iverson and the Sixers took Game 1 in a total shocker, and instead of celebrating Allen just walked off the court, as if nothing happened, as if it were written in stone. Dude was more money than Fort Knox, Diddy and Benjamin Franklin rolled into one. He was The Answer. And while controversy and off-court issues hounded his career (plus his coach-riling belief that practice was below him), Iverson was the type of player you’ll never forget. His game, and speed, were mutant. Now the NBA legend has decided to have his story told in the documentary Iverson that will be premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival this Sunday, April 29th. Besides Number 3 himself, interviews include Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Tom Brokaw and his greatest basketball foil, coach Larry Brown. Watch the trailer below, and try to hold out till Iverson hits Netflix…
