A lot of former players often compare today’s league to the “good ole days”. Some of the critics are positive, and some are negative.
Allen Iverson is the recent former super-star who expressed his opinion about the players who’s style of play somewhat resembles to his own. Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving are both premiere point-guards in the league, and who’s “razzle-dazzle” style of people, often brings crowds to their feet.
During his apperance on NBC, Iverson payed a lot of respect for both players and their ability to handle the ball.

It’s great to hear former players compliment the young bloods, especially in today’s time where there is a lot of scrutiny for the NBA and it’s players.
Allen Iverson is often the name people associate with a deadly crossover or great handles, since we all remember he crossed up so many players in the league and even some of the best like Michael Jordan. He was also unbelivieably fast and dominating the entire game, while at the same time often being the smallest player on the court.
Both Kyrie and Steph have already proved themselves in this league as NBA champions, but also great shooters and ball handeleres. This is the value Iverson saw in both of them and the only thing we can say is “game recognizes game”.
