"He was instructing a ball boy to run to Foot Locker and buy him some sneakers" - Former Sixers and Nets general manager on Allen Iverson's insatiable desire to play and hiding his jersey before a game.

Allen Iverson is one of the most ferocious competitors in NBA history.

The 1996 draft's first choice was just six feet tall and weighed 165 pounds, but he was as tough as nails on the court.

The Philadelphia 76ers legend was so determined to play that he regularly defied team doctors' recommendations and played even when hurt.
