Allen Iverson

His skills were so infectious that a good number of teenage boys started imitating his dress style and wished to dribble like him. Iverson affectionately called ‘AI’ or ‘The Answer’ proved to be one of NBA’s top scorers and it didn’t matter he was barely 6 feet.

Iverson led the NBA in minutes 7 times in his career while he also led the league in scoring four times underlying his offensive abilities, but AI was also a solid defender, leading the NBA in steals three times in his career having a career average of 2.2 steals per game.

Although Iverson made it to the NBA Finals once, he was undone by the high flying Los Angeles Lakers squad. Iverson nonetheless is an 11-time NBA All-Star who won the NBA MVP award in 2001. He is retired now.
