    I still take AI because I've never seen kyrie by himself carry his team to the finals

    Why does it feel like they're arguing even when they are agreeing with each other 😂

    I've never seen two players as explosive and phenomenal as Allen Iverson and Tracy McGrady in their prime.

    KD still mad about that time that Iverson took his ankles when he played for the sonics

    Kyrie is an amazing player with superstar skills but Iverson was on a completely different level. I don't see Kyrie or any point guard ever doing what Iverson did in 2001 where he, at barely 6'0 and 170 pounds, led a garbage team all the way to the finals and still find a way to win at least one game.
    Iverson was a 4x scoring champion. The only guy under 6'1 to have over 20,000 career points. Won league MVP over guys like O'Neal, Duncan, Kobe, Garnett all in their prime. That's not a knock against Kyrie or any other point guard. Iverson was just special.

    To quote the great Kobe Bean Bryant, “We should all be fortunate Allen Iverson wasn’t 6’5” “

    I miss those days. AI is the last player that comes to mind that virtually every kid wanted to emulate. Be it the generational handles or the do it all attitude. The small stature or the start to stop quickness. There was something relatable yet other worldly about him. It's different with a LeBron, Shaq, etc because most kids knew they weren't going to grow up being 6'8+ athletic anomalies.

    Allen Iverson was tough and pound for pound the best shooting guard of all time. This is coming from a Pacer fan.

    Iverson was more dominant. In terms of natural talent, Iverson was a rare bird.
