Did Allen Iverson Really Say Steph Curry & Kyrie Irving Had Better Handles Than Him?
To promote the premiere of the IVERSON documentary, Showtime tweeted out this snippet which is sure to spark a few conversations.
Nothing against the insane handles of the MVP Chef or our favorite uncle, but Iverson was just being modest. He had just as much or better handles than those guys and Isiah Lord Thomas III, J Crossover, The Pistol and White Chocolate.
Past His Prime Iverson vs a Rookie Steph Curry
Flashback to 2009, when a rookie Stephen Curry had the opportunity to play against one of his childhood heroes, Allen Iverson, during AI’s farewell season in the NBA.
Steph put up a nice stat line of 14 points, 4 boards, 4 assists and 4 steals but only hit 38% of his shots while turning the ball over 4 times and committing 5 fouls. An under control Iverson finished the game with 20 points on 7 of 10 shooting.
