This isn’t really even a surprising statement coming from LeBron James.
Allen Iverson is the “Answer,” the greatest little guard of all time in my opinion. LeBron James told ESPN The Magazine that “Iverson was his 2nd favorite player growing up behind Michael Jordan.”
I watch Jordan more than anybody, for sure,” James told ESPN’s Chris Broussard for a story in the upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine. “But I’ll watch tapes of AI too. I don’t take anything from AI. Well, I do — his will. They say he was 6 feet, but AI was like 5-10½. Do we even want to say 160? 170 [pounds]? Do we even want to give him that much weight? And he played like a 6-8 2-guard. He was one of the greatest finishers we’ve ever seen. You could never question his heart. Ever. He gave it his all. AI was like my second-favorite player growing up, after MJ.”
