Allen Iverson 3

I wish there was a season where I was playing and didn’t have no aches, no pains, no bruises, no nothing.
Allen Iverson

Everybody talks about that one when they first meet me. ‘Man, I still remember the play you shook Jordan.’ Everybody gonna always remember it because it was Jordan.
Allen Iverson

You look at guys on the court, man. You got this guy with this brand of shoe, and this guy with this brand – they’re just wearing the shoe. But it’s a whole different feeling when you got a shoe on, and it’s yours.
Allen Iverson

All I ever wanted to do was wear Jordans. I think there was only one or two pair I never had.

If I’m not getting older and more mature at 31, then something’s wrong.

Getting Older, Mature, Wrong
I couldn’t have accomplished the things in my career if I didn’t practice, and the worst part about that whole thing is when a kid comes up to me and says ‘Allen, I don’t like practice, either.’ I’ve got to straighten that kid right then.
Allen Iverson

I just want kids all over the world to know you have to practice to be any good in this game; it’s too hard.
Allen Iverson

I’m not going to be the same as I was when I’ve made so many bad mistakes.
Allen Iverson

You can hide from the devil, but he’ll always find you.

Larry Brown molded me into an MVP and a Hall of Fame player.
Allen Iverson

That’s where I’ll get the love in my heart: from, the fact that little young guys can look at the obstacles that I had to go through to become a Hall of Famer and know it’s not so bad when it comes to them trying to accomplish the same goal.
Allen Iverson

I wasn’t a fan of the Sixers. My dad was a big Mo Cheeks fan, and he wanted me to be drafted by the Sixers. My thing was, if that could make my dad happy, then that would make me happy, you know what I mean?
Allen Iverson

I knew I was gonna be the number one pick, but I didn’t know.
Allen Iverson

I’m a Hall of Famer, and I can go outside today and go to a restaurant or wherever, and somebody will come up to me and say, ‘Practice? We talkin’ ’bout practice?’ Man, I am a Hall of Famer, and that’s all you can think about?
Allen Iverson

God gave me all this; why waste the talent that he gave me? Why not go full throttle with it all and try to become in the class with the greatest players that ever played the game? That’s just a great feeling.
Allen Iverson

All my tattoos are tattoos that I wanted to get, but I couldn’t afford.
Allen Iverson

Coming into the league, if I would’ve had money, then obviously I would’ve had more tattoos.
Allen Iverson

Tattoos, cornrows, headbands, hip-hop. I never meant to start any trends. I got my butt kicked, but if that meant that the guys who came after me could be themselves, then it was worth it.
Allen Iverson

I’m just a regular 24/7 dad now.
Allen Iverson

Being older, I can’t imagine a parent not wanting to be in their kid’s life. I will just never understand it. To me, it’s priceless.
Allen Iverson

I surround myself with people who make me laugh.
Allen Iverson

Guys is supposed to be able to be original and dress like how they want to dress. The NBA can’t dress no grown man.
Allen Iverson

I felt like I was better at football than I am in basketball.
Allen Iverson

I’ve accomplished so many things in basketball. I financially secured my kids’ life and their future. I’m just happy. I’m just blessed. So anything that I’m not awarded doesn’t matter because I’ve been rewarded enough in this lifetime.
Allen Iverson

I gotta win games. Because if we lose games, and I score a lot, they going to say I’m scorin’ too much.
Allen Iverson

There’s nothing that sells good about Allen Iverson if it’s something positive about Allen Iverson.
