Allen Iverson was never the one to shy away from commenting on anything related to basketball. Even during his playing days, Iverson was known for his outspoken personality and his exciting lifestyle. The 6-foot point guard from Virginia is often considered as one of the best "little guys" to ever play the game and his resume speaks for itself. Iverson spent most of his Hall of Fame career playing for the Philadelphia 76ers and he led them to the NBA Finals in the 2000/2001 season. The Sixers lost to the Los Angeles Lakers that year in the Finals, but the fact that Iverson managed to get that Philadelphia team to the Finals was remarkable.

In 2001 Iverson won the league MVP award, and to this day he is remembered as a fearless player that never backed down from the challenge. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016 and he recently commented on another future Hall of Famer - LeBron James.

"I wanted to see Durant win"

One would think Iverson would have not so good opinion about Kevin Durant after he (Durant) recently said that Kyrie Irving might be a better player than Allen Iverson. But that's not the case, as the former Philadelphia star was caught watching the final moments of this year's Finals, and one of the first things he stated was: "I wanted to see Durant win because he ain’t never did it. I love his mama. I love everything he stands for.

I wanted Durant to feel what I never got the chance to feel."

Strong words by the legendary point guard, and it just goes to show you how humble he is and how much he respects other great players. Iverson went on to mention former great players that played in the NBA but never won the title. The likes of Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing came to his mind as he said he wanted them also to win the championship because he knows how much it means.

"LeBron's the best in the world"

Iverson didn't forget to mention how great of a player LeBron James is, and even though he ended up averaging a triple-double in the Finals, his team managed to get only one win in the series. Allen knows that no matter how good you are individually, you need other great players around you to win the championship.

"LeBron's the best in the world." Iverson said, "They got beat by the better team. It happened to me before."

He ended up his thoughts on the Finals by sending a strong message to LeBron James and the rest of the league: "LeBron's gonna win some more. He's gonna do it." Iverson seems to be confident that LeBron James will add at least one more ring to his legacy, and the way James played this season - there's no reason to doubt that.
