Biography:

Former NBA All-Star and Sports Speaker Allen Iverson is widely considered to be one of the most electrifying scorers the game of basketball has ever seen. Allen’s 6’0”, 165 lb. stature is certainly no indicator of his intensity, competitiveness, and most importantly- his heart. The relentless scorer currently ranks 28th all time for points in his career with 24,368 points. The lifetime Reebok endorser garnered a long list of accolades over his illustrious NBA career, including the 2001 Most Valuable Player Award and 11 All-Star game appearances. Most recently, Allen signed an endorsement deal with Stance socks, a company also endorsed by current NBA athletes like Dwayne Wade, Chandler Parsons, and Klay Thompson.

During his 2 standout years at Georgetown University, Sports Speaker Allen Iverson earned the Big East Defensive Player of the Year twice and was named a consensus First-Team All-American in 1996. Declaring for the NBA Draft after his sophomore season, Allen was selected with the first overall pick by the Philadelphia 76ers. Allen made an immediate impact in the league, averaging 23.5 points and 7.5 assists per game on his way to earning Rookie of the Year honors. The following season, Allen flourished under new head coach Larry Brown; Larry knew how to effectively utilize Allen’s unique talents to help better the team. In his second season under Larry Brown, Allen upped his scoring to a remarkable 26.8 points per game, winning his first of 4 NBA scoring titles. In the 2000-2001 season, Allen solidified himself as the league’s most unstoppable force. He averaged 31.1 points per game over the season (his 2nd scoring title) on his way to winning the NBA’s Most Valuable Player Award. Allen would lead the 76ers to their first NBA Finals appearance since 1983, where they would fall to the defending champions, the Los Angeles Lakers. In a game against the Orlando Magic in 2005, Allen dropped a career-high 60 points as defenders seemed helpless in attempting to stop the scoring machine.

Allen would end his first stint in Philadelphia as the franchises leader in scoring average (28.1). He was traded to the Denver Nuggets in 2006, playing alongside another elite scorer in Carmelo Anthony. After two seasons in Denver, Allen also had small stints with the Detroit Pistons and the Memphis Grizzlies before ultimately returning to the 76ers for the 2009-2010 season in what would ultimately be his final season in the NBA. During his career, Allen also represented the U.S. in the Olympics, playing in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens; the team would take home the bronze medal.

Off the court, Sports Speaker Allen Iverson does his best to assist those facing financial struggles, struggles that he was familiar with himself growing up. In 2009, he established the Allen Iverson Student-Athlete Scholarship to help the financial burden of student-athletes from his hometown of Hampton, Virginia. Despite being one of the most dynamic guards the NBA has ever seen, he remains humble and giving; Allen won’t forget his roots anytime soon.

Sports Speaker Allen Iverson will go down as one of the greatest point guards in NBA history bar none.
