I bet you know who Allen Iverson is; he is the superstar guard for the Phillidelphia 76ers and he is one of the best players in the NBA. I bet what you didn¿t know is that he grew up in one of the worst enviornments you could ever think of. His family had no money and his neighborhood was filled with drug dealers and crime.some months his house had no electricity because his mom could not foot the bill. But that all changed when he got involed with basketball.when Allen first stepped on a basketball court he amazed people. his quickness and agility made him one of the best players on the streets.Having a killer crossover didn¿t hurt either.You could have said he was good! Allen did get into some trouble when he was in high school; he served 4 months in prision for something he says he did not do. Allen went to high school at Bethel high and went to college at Georgetown on a full- scolarship with coach John Thompson. Coach Thompson was not only Allen¿s college coach but as Allen¿s mentor.Thompson taught Allen everything he knows today about life and basketball. John Thompson is a great man. I loved this book! This is a story shows how yu can go from nothing to something. Allen Iveron overcame big obstacles and is role-model for anyone who lives in the ghetto or a bad enviornment. I recommend this book to anyone who loves basketball or Allen Iverson. Go buy that book today!
