Love it. Well, I like it. Obviously he’s not nearly as explosive as he was during his Hall Of Fame career. But anytime you can get Iverson in a gym shooting the rock makes the nostalgia wood shoot to the moon. And as the Big3 approaches, I feared more and more that Allen Iverson would drop out. I don’t care if he’s lost a step or 50, I want – I NEED to see The Answer back in action anyway, anyhow. And him boogying in a 3-on-3 setting at any age or level of TGIFriday’s appetizers deep would still be a sight to see. Iverson in his prime would arguably be the greatest 3-on-3 player of all time. He would simply be unstoppable with all that space. Would AI on the wrong side of 40 after a few gallons of Hennessy be as dominant as his MVP days? Of course not. But anything by Iverson at this, or any point is very welcome. Keep on doing the damn thing, AI. That Reebok payday is still almost a decade off.
For real though, Iverson in a 3-on-3 setting back in his heyday would be astronomically unreal. He’d be on that extremely short list for #1 overall playground pick out of all players in NBA history. Long Live The Answer.
