Overview

Allen Iverson, star shooting guard for the Philadelphia 76ers, is one of the most electrifying players in the NBA. With his lightning quickness and acrobatic ball-handling skills, Iverson is virtually unstoppable on the court. Even more important than his skills on the court, however, are Allen Iverson's will and determination. These traits have enabled him to overcome tremendous adversity and become one of the greatest basketball players in the world today. Despite growing up poor, Iverson never gave up on his dream of playing pro basketball and giving his family a chance at a better life. In 1996, he was the first player picked overall in the NBA Draft. During his first six seasons, Iverson led the NBA in scoring two times and was voted the top player in the league's All-Star Game in 2001. Without a doubt, Allen Iverson is living proof that perseverance and hard work are the key components to any success story.
