Lebron James Praises Allen Iverson
Allen Iverson is one of the most influential players on the current generation of NBA players. Yes, Jordan gets mentioned, and younger players talk about Kobe Bryant but Iversons fearless style on and off the court has a lot of admirers.
Put LeBron James in that group.
Talking about Iversons official retirement Wednesday when the Sixers play Miami, LeBron heaped praise on Iverson Monday, as reported by Tom Haberstroh at ESPNs Heat Index.
Pound-for-pound, probably the greatest player who ever played, James said of Iverson, who will retire in a Sixers pregame ceremony ahead of Wednesdays home opener against the defending champion Heat."
