Key Takeaways from Allen Iverson Showtime Documentary: “Iverson”
Why was Allen Iverson misunderstood? This Showtime Documentary will try to answer that question for all the A.I. supporters and haters in the world. Iverson was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers in 1996 as the first overall pick. He played in the NBA for 14 seasons with four different teams Philadelphia (1996-2006, 2009-2010), Denver (2006-2008), Detroit (2008-2009), and Memphis (2009). He was the 1997 NBA Rookie of the Year, an eleven time NBA All-Star, and was the NBA’s Most Valuable Player in 2001. He only stood 6’0 feet tall and weighed 165 pounds, but is considered one of the greatest small guards to ever play in the National Basketball Association. So what are we talking about here “Takeaways” not the game I love and will go out here and die for “Takeaways” that’s what were talking about. Here are a few key takeaways from Allen Iverson’s Showtime Documentary Iverson.
Nicknamed Bubba-Chuck – The Answer’s childhood nick-name was Bubba-Chuck giving to him by his two uncles in Virginia.Two Sport Star – Allen led his high-school Bethal (VA) to two state titles in basketball and football.

He came from a tough background which made him who he was. In turn he used that tough background to learn from his falls and how to get back up when he was down. You learn about a persons character more through adversity, than when they are on top in my opinion. Through the adversity he faced in life and in basketball, A.I. proved that he is a definitely a fighter and survivor in the game of life and basketball.
