Allen Iverson Drops 40 Fresh Out Jail | AI at 19

For those who were there at McDonough Gymnasium on August 4, 1994, few will forget the arrival of a 6-0 freshman guard who needed no introduction. 

The rumors of Allen Iverson, who was in jail just 24 hours earlier, coming to the Kenner Summer League on that Sunday afternoon created a big buzz in the city and an over packed gym with a long line of rejected people outside.  What those rejected people outside missed was Allen Iverson scoring 40 points that day and A combined 99 points in three days against some of the best collegiate talent in the city.

Some were actually disappointed that he didn’t score more but considering he hadn’t played organized basketball in over a year, I would say Iverson played pretty well for a player that had to shake off some rust.
