Allen Iverson is one of the greatest and most popular players in NBA history, and he has a lot of respect for LeBron James. Iverson was one of the deadliest scorers during his prime and even though he was short, his size was never an issue as he was creative when finding ways to score. Although he is retired, he still watches the NBA and he was going for the Golden State Warriors to win it all this year.

The Warriors did win it all and Iverson was happy because Kevin Durant finally realized what it feels to win a championship ring. However, the retired NBA legend mentioned that he thinks LeBron James will win more championships.

While it seems like an impossible task considering how strong the Warriors are, James is the best player of this generation and nothing is impossible for him.

Mutual respect between LeBron and Iverson

A few years ago, LeBron James called Allen Iverson one of his favorite players to watch, along with Michael Jordan. In 2013, the King said that Iverson is pound for pound, the greatest player ever. There is no doubt that LeBron has great respect and admiration for the former MVP, and it goes the other way as well.

Recently, Allen Iverson talked about how happy he is that Durant won his first championship ring. "I wanted to see Durant win because he ain't never did it. I love everything he stands for.

That's the only reason I was going for Golden State. I wanted Durant to feel what I never got the chance to feel, and they deserve it," commented Iverson. "LeBron's gonna win some more. He's gonna do it," added the NBA legend.

Iverson also said that LeBron James is the best player in the world, but that sometimes a better team beats you.

He mentioned himself as an example as the Los Angeles Lakers beat Iverson's Philadelphia 76ers in five games, despite Iverson being one of the best players in the league and the reigning MVP.

Will LeBron James do it?

Golden State Warriors are one of the best teams in NBA history and it's hard to see that anyone can beat them next season.

However, LeBron James has done some incredible things in his career, including beating the Warriors after trailing 3-1 in the series.

LeBron's path to the fourth championship ring won't be easy and he will need a lot more support from his team in order to take the Warriors down. Even though James is 32, he is still in his prime and is coming off the greatest NBA Finals series of his career. If the Cavaliers improve their roster this offseason, there's a good chance that the King wins another championship.
