Allen Iverson 1

We should because when coaches get fired, the players have a lot to do with it.
Allen Iverson

I had a lot of growing up to do. A lot of times, I learned the hard way.
Allen Iverson

Man, people have been waiting for me to fall off my whole career. From the first time I stepped on the court. It probably made people sick to their stomachs watching my whole career, watching the things that I’ve done in my career.
Allen Iverson

I love my fans in Philadelphia, but this is the hardest place in the world to play in. And I think it’s the hardest place to play in to be a superstar. Just to be the No. 1 guy. All eyes on you – because everybody wants you to be perfect, but not themselves.
Allen Iverson

I may not know everything about physical talent or anything like that, but I have a sharp mind when it comes to that look: being able to look into somebody’s eyes to tell if they are going to be in the foxhole with you tonight, or if they are not.
Allen Iverson

I don’t watch college basketball.

Basketball, College, Watch
I am sick of defending myself, and I am not going to keep on doing it.
Allen Iverson

You think I can be the MVP without practicing?
Allen Iverson

I dressed like the guys who I grew up with. I looked like the guys I grew up with.
Allen Iverson

It was a great experience for me – the ups and downs – because I became a man in Philadelphia.
Allen Iverson

It was just the greatest feeling to see a kid with your shoes on.
Allen Iverson

I’m just overwhelmed with the fact that I had a signature shoe. It’s actually ‘my shoe.’
Allen Iverson

Any one of my shoes that I had, you knew that, night in, night out, I gave my teammates and my fans everything that I had.
Allen Iverson

I want to thank coach Thompson… for saving my life. For giving me the opportunity.
Allen Iverson

I was recruited by every school in the country for football and basketball. And an incident happened in high school, and all that was taken away. No other teams, no other schools were recruiting me anymore.
Allen Iverson

My mom always told me that I could be anything I wanted to be. And I truly, actually believed it. And I fought.
Allen Iverson

If I could take back all the mistakes that I made throughout my career, I would have had a perfect career. I would have missed no shots. I would have made no turnovers. I would have went right instead of going left when I was supposed to, every game.
Allen Iverson

I can’t take it back. I can’t take anything back. So I don’t regret it.
Allen Iverson

It was a blessing just to play one NBA basketball game.
Allen Iverson

I always wanted to be a Sixer… I always wanted to finish my career as a Sixer.
Allen Iverson

Just understand that there’s going to be some ups, there’s going to be some downs.
Allen Iverson

I failed, got back up. I failed, got back up.
Allen Iverson

I got a lot of love for NBC, Tom Brokaw. He did a lot for me, and I appreciate him, and I owe a lot to him for that.
Allen Iverson

I went from the projects to a real house. It was a big difference.
Allen Iverson

I don’t have any problems with what these guys wear because they got their own style and their own originality. That’s the way it’s supposed to be, man.
Allen Iverson

Everybody is their own person.
