Few players in NBA history have been as dominant and dimunitive as Allen Iverson.
Now, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is slightly larger than his Hall-of-Fame-finalist counterpart, so you’d expect him to fare a little bit better than the former Philadelphia 76ers guard. That’s fair. But according to Iverson, the reigning MVP is way beyond even his own lofty heights — and someone you can mention in the same breath as Michael Jordan, as Iverson did at a recent 76ers charity event:
Even a comparison between Iverson and Curry isn’t really fair. For one thing, the latter has already made 450 more total 3s in his regular-season career than Iverson did in 914 career games.
Let that sink in for as second. We know Iverson was never much of a 3-point shooter, but he could chuck with the best of them — except, you know, he can’t hold a candle to Curry. And he seems okay with that.
