Allen Iverson

When you are not practicing, someone else is getting better.
Allen Iverson

When you win, everything is everything. But when you lose, it’s all about Allen Iverson and Larry Brown. When we win, I know that I get the praise and Larry Brown gets the praise, but when we lose, it’s on me and Larry Brown. That’s something that I have to learn to accept and deal with.
Allen Iverson

If that many people recognize how hard I go every night and what I put into my game, to make myself and my team better, it means a lot to mean. I’m fortunate; I’m blessed to be in the situation that I’m in right now.
Allen Iverson

When you lose, there is a whole bunch of room for negativity and I don’t feed into this stuff and I do not do any talking. I don’t run my mouth.
Allen Iverson

Man, I’m 31 years old and a husband with four kids; I hope I’m no thug. I hear all those negative things and don’t hear anything positive. I think that’s all those people feel… that way that’s all they hear about when you hear Allen Iverson did something negative or something.

I gave everything I had to basketball. The passion is still there, but the desire to play is not. It was a great ride.

When you are not practicing, someone else is getting better.
Allen Iverson

I didn’t take constructive criticism the way I should have. When I finally caught up to that, that’s when I went to being the MVP.
Allen Iverson

If I don’t believe it, then they don’t need me on the court. I’ve just got to believe that in my heart.
Allen Iverson

Just because you put a guy in a tuxedo doesn’t make him a good guy.
Allen Iverson

I wasn’t a point guard. I was a killer.
Allen Iverson

I have no regrets on anything. People ask me all the time, ‘Do I have any regrets?’ I don’t have any. If I could back and do it all over, would I change anything? No.
Allen Iverson

I wasn’t afraid to be who I am. I didn’t think anything was wrong with it.
Allen Iverson

What makes me feel good is all of the people that rooted for A.I. get a chance to say, ‘He did what you never thought he could do. The critics. He did what you never thought he could accomplish.’ This is a moment that me and my fans and my family and friends can share together because we always believed in the dream.
Allen Iverson

Being an All-Star is everything.
Allen Iverson

I believe that whatever we have, regardless of a trade being done or not, I feel we have a shot. I’ve just got to believe that we’re going to be all right. I’ve got to just play basketball.
Allen Iverson

Me and my family are straight. I am blessed. I am alive, man, and I am healthy, and that is the only thing that matters. Me and my family, everybody else, it really doesn’t matter because why do you care about somebody talking negative about you if they don’t know you?
Allen Iverson

LeBron ain’t got none of my game, but his heart is all mine.
Allen Iverson

Doing this for so long, I realize that the media – you have a boss. And your boss wants you to provide the best material that you can. And he might put pressure on you to do it a way that you feel is unconstitutional. You might not like it. But you still gotta feed your family.
Allen Iverson

He’s helped me do so much in my career, helped me be the player that I am. If there’s no Larry Brown, then there’s no MVP, Allen Iverson.
Allen Iverson

Obviously, if I could go back and change anything, I would be a perfect man. And I know there’s no perfect man.
Allen Iverson

I don’t care. I feel like if we don’t make a trade, we have to get it done with what we’ve got.
Allen Iverson

I don’t want to just go to the playoffs, I don’t want to go to the playoffs and win the first round, second round, and not win the whole thing because it’s bittersweet.
Allen Iverson

I owe all of this to the guys I’ve played with and all the coaches that have helped me get to where I’m at right now. I’m honored to be here.
Allen Iverson

Personally I just want to win a championship.
Allen Iverson

This is like a tribute to them, the people who helped me to get here. The thing that makes me feel good about the whole thing is, the fans voted me here.
Allen Iverson

This is the thing you dream about when you’re a kid, even before getting into the league.
