To hype the Saturday night debut of Iverson, Showtime released what will no doubt prove to be one of the juiciest tidbits from the forthcoming documentary. And it has nothing to do with his 1995 trial, “practice,” or even his rocky adjustment to a post-playing life. Instead, what Allen Iverson has to say about the game’s preeminent dribbling savants is what should make most headlines.
Whether that’s right or not is a discussion for another time. But Iverson thinking – let alone admitting – that his legendary handle has been surpassed by a pair of current stars? Cue the angry and nostalgic masses.
Reminder: He said it, folks. Not us. We also tend to agree with Iverson, though.
The Answer’s dribbling theatrics might very well be unparalleled. His crossover is widely considered the best in league history, and Iverson had a bevy of spins, fakes, and dekes at his disposal, too. When it comes to pure flash and pizazz, it’s certainly possible his handle reigns supreme.
