Allen Iverson is one amongst those few legends who played Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James during the prime of their careers. The Answer himself is regarded as best in the league for the records he accomplished.
Iverson linked up with Fat Joe on Instagram for the rapper’s The Fat Joe Show recently and recalled his NBA days and also talked hip-hop.
Iverson gave his updated take on the Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James debate and called the latter “the one.”
“Like, as much as I love Michael Jordan, like… Man, LeBron James is the one,” Iverson said. “He the one, man.”
Respct goes both ways as LeBron called Iverson “pound for pound, the greatest player ever” in 2013.
Like most legends, they usually change their opinions over time, which is what happened back in 2018 when Iverson heaped praise on Michael Jordan and put him at No. 1.
“Man….. listen. First of all, I love LeBron,” Iverson previously said, per CBS Sports. “I have nothing but love for LeBron. That’s the best player of his generation, one of the best ever, a great husband, great father, great role model, and it’s even beyond that: What he’s doing with that school in Akron?? It’s a beautiful thing. But y’all. We’re talking about Mike. We’re talking about Mike, O.K.?? We’re talking about Black Jesus himself. And I don’t really have much more to say beyond that. Mike is the GOAT……. Mike is always going to be the GOAT. And please don’t even insult me with any of this “stats, AI!” business, like you have a chance of changing my mind.”
The first overall in the year 1996 would win the MVP in 2001 and be elected to the NBA hall of fame.
