Allen Iverson is one of the greatest and most beloved basketball players of all time. His electrifying crossovers, crazy putback dunks and unwilling heart have made him one of the most beloved basketball players of all time. There is no doubt that 'The Answer' has become one of the biggest names in NBA history, and will be forever remembered in the basketball world.

Allen Iverson played from 1996 till 2010 while performing on multiple teams including the Philadelphia 76ers, Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons and the Memphis Grizzlies. The Sixers was the place where Iverson's career blossomed and he became one of the most talked about players in the league.

His heart, will, determination on the court, and his not so great situations off the court, combined with his rebelliousness to the NBA's clothing policy, made Allen Iverson the unique player he was, a player that we have never seen before.

Iverson predicts more titles for King James

While watching game five of the 2017 NBA Finals, Allen Iverson gave some insight into the game and what he thought about the outcome of the series.

A.I. talked about the idea of LeBron James being the best player alive but having to compete against the best team on the planet, stating, "LeBron's the best in the world, but sometimes, the better team beats you, man. They got beat by the better team. It happened to me before."

While also expressing his appreciation for Finals MVP, Kevin Durant and his mother and what they are all about, stating, "I love Kyrie...

Tyronn Lue. You know... But I wanted to see Durant win, because he ain't never did it. I love his mama... everything he stands for. That's the only reason I was going for Golden State."

The accomplishment of winning an NBA championship title is something that a lot of people dream about and hope to one day feel, as for Iverson, he always wished he could taste the championship moment, but never got the chance to.

But he wishes other legends of the sport, had experienced it, stating, "But I wanted Durant to feel what I never got the chance to feel, and they deserve it... Because LeBron's gonna win some more. He's gonna do it."

Iverson also expressed that he wanted to see other NBA legends such as Patrick Ewing and Charles Barkley win the title also.

But Allen truly believes LeBron James, who is aged 32 coming off his 14th season can win a few more championships. It might be a tall task for King James, but if anyone can do it, it would be himself.

Allen Iverson came close

Allen Iverson has expressed his desire to hold the Larry O'Brien NBA championship trophy on several occasions. And without question, he was close to doing that throughout his NBA career, while facing huge obstacles.

During the 2000-01 NBA season, Allen Iverson averaged 31.1 points per game along with 4.6 assists and 2.5 steals per game. This statline, and his ability to lead his team to a 56-26 record, rewarded A.I. as the 2001 Most Valuable Player.

He extended his great season even further when Iverson led the Philadelphia 76ers to their first NBA Finals since 1983, and the Sixers defeated the Lakers dynamic Kobe-Shaq team in game one.

But the Lakers were too dominant, as they went on to win the next 5 games, going 16-1 in the playoffs that year and made their presence known. That was the one year Allen Iverson came close to the championship trophy, but unfortunately never came close enough.
