Just like in the stories of Chinese Emperors, NBA Stars of the past have their own share of mistakes and bad decisions. Because of that, they were able to create a lasting mark that made the history of the game more colorful and more appealing to the fans.
One of those stars is Allen Iverson. You may either like or despise him, but one thing is for sure, Iverson changed the game. He found his own niche in the vast NBA World. He didn't care what others think of him. He just did his thing, not knowing that he was changing the game little by little until he came to be known as the baller who bridged the hip-hop culture and the NBA, the one who revolutionized game, perfect for the 90's.
"From one MVP to Another"
If there's anyone in the NBA who knows how to look back at history in order to better understand the present, it's the reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant. A photo on his Instagram account showed that he appreciates former NBA MVP Allen Iverson's contribution to the game. Not only that. He also said "Pound-for-pound, AI's the best."
