How I Came to Adore Allen Iverson

Allen Iverson was always overrated in my opinion.

That's heresy coming from a die-hard Sixers fan, but bear in mind that he walked over Tyronn Lue when I was three months old.

 I didn't grow up watching AI don my favourite uniform and score over 30 points per game.

I grew up watching Andre Igoudala-led teams battle for the seventh or eighth seed year after year.

Iverson was nothing more than a Sixers player from the past.

I had a rudimentary concept of how The Answer played and what legacy he had as I grew older and my knowledge of basketball history expanded.
