Allen Iverson is remembered for his illustrious career that was filled with some amazing highlights due to his flashy dribble moves and creative shot-making ability. Despite being only 6'0'' and 165 lbs, AI played bigger than his size, displaying unmatched heart and fearlessness for his position.
Going at Rodman
Coming out of Georgetown as the #1 pick, Iverson was expected to produce right away and bring the Sixers into relevancy again, and "The Answer" delivered.
In his rookie season, Iverson averaged 23.5 ppg and 7.5 apg, bringing us some spectacular highlights. Breaking down Michael Jordan in isolation is one of the most notorious ones, but there was much more.
In a game versus the Bulls during his rookie season, Iverson would get into it with MJ's teammate and one of the most notorious 'Bad Boys' of the league, Dennis Rodman. While battling for a rebound, Rodman would give AI a cheap shot in the head after chirping for a few possessions already.
But the rookie Iverson showed no fear to the veteran Rodman and went at him while being held back by the referee. The 6'7'' Rodman would stay calm and look suprised as the smaller and heated Iverson tried to get a piece of him. In short, it was the perfect representation of 90s basketball.
The clip recently went trending on the Web, with fans admiring Iverson for not shying away from the smoke and proving he is as tough as they come. Iverson would score 32 in that game and prove once again he would be a problem for years to come, but it wasn't enough to overcome the powerhouse Bulls, who took the 111-105 victory that night.
