24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
One of the greatest scores in NBA history, Allen Iverson was an absolute nightmare to defend. If you got too close to him, he’d blow past you, if you sagged off of him, he’d splash a jumper. In the open court he was unstoppable. The 6-foot-, 165 pound warrior got to the line better than any player from his era.
He won four scoring titles and had five seasons in which he averaged 30 or more points per game. Iverson had some incredible scoring performance throughout his career, but none better than the career-high 60 points on the Magic. The Answer also had 6 assists, 4 rebounds and 5 steals in this game.
Who knew a 6-foot guard would go onto accomplish such feats. Iverson literally changed the guard position forever. There are so many small guards in today’s league that can go off for 25-30 points on any given night, it was A.I. that gave them this vision.
