IVERSON REMEMBERS HIS FAVORITE STORY WITH JORDAN: "Mike is the only person I ever met who can be so effortless in his cool"

jordan and iverson

Allen Iverson was one of the most influential players in recent decades, and apart from being a basketball icon, he was also a cultural icon on top of that. Despite being much appreciated and embodied the definition of “cool”, especially among the younger generation, Iverson always said Michael Jordan was one of the coolest people he ever met simply because of the way he was carrying himself.

In an interview for The Players Tribune, Allen Iverson talked about several interesting things from his career. Still, he very fondly remembered his favorite Michael Jordan story that happened during the 2003 All-Star weekend. That was Jordan’s last NBA season with the Wizards, while on the other hand, Iverson was enjoying extreme popularity around the league at that time, and a lot of the media was focused on these two players on the court.

Iverson was looking for Jordan before the game and was surprised to find him in the coaches’ office enjoying himself with a Cuban cigar. Iverson was positively surprised because he saw Jordan completely relaxed like he has no worries in the world, but at the same time in Iverson’s mind, that was the coolest moment between him and Jordan.

"ARE YOU SERIOUS!! Man, I think I’m a cool guy. I’m alright. But Mike is the only person I ever — I mean ever — met who can be so effortless in his cool that he leaves this…. GLOW. It’s almost like I’ll remember the details about that moment and then I’ll get worked up from remembering it, just thinking about how cool that man is, you know what I’m saying?? I mean, he….. Y’all! Y’ALL. He’s smoking a CIGAR, with his UNIFORM on…… before the NBA ALL-STAR GAME. And man, he’s in the COACHES’ OFFICE. He’s in the coaches’ office. You’re smoking your big-ass cigar in the coaches’ office, in your damn uniform, with your feet kicked up like it’s nothing, before your very last All-Star Game?? Man — you run everything. You run EV-ER-Y-THING!!"
