Allen Iverson might go down as the greatest pound for pound basketball player of all time, and this mixtape shows exactly why.
Iverson, who played for 14 seasons in the NBA, was an eleven-time NBA All-Star, won the All-Star game MVP award in 2001 and 2005, and was the NBA’s MVP in 2001. But perhaps his cultural impact on the game is what he is most known for.
One of the first players to really bring hip hop culture to the NBA, with baggy clothes, tattoos and cornrows, he was a groundbreaker both on and off the court. His flashy street style of play, including the killer crossover, has made him a fan and mixtape favourite for years.
There have been countless mixtapes dropped of AI over the years, but nothing comes close to this one released by the NBA to mark his induction into the Hall of Fame.
Every one of his nastiest ankle breaking moves, and gravity defying dunks (for a 5’11” guard he had underrated bounce), is captured in this four and a half minutes of basketball heaven – check it out and share with your friends!
