About Allen Iverson

About Allen Iverson

Father. Aspiring fisherman. Basketball star.

A great example of someone who has grown, matured, and learned from his mistakes, Iverson has had to overcome struggles and obstacles that most can only imagine. Raised by his hard-working mother (his father was in prison), Iverson lived in poverty his entire childhood. In his senior year of high school he went from being wooed by numerous colleges for both basketball and football, to serving time in jail and having those prospects disappear. But he persevered and went to Georgetown where he played basketball while majoring in Art. Since then he has become a basketball legend and role model – pretty amazing results for someone who to this day says football is his #1 sport.

Yet with all the fame and glory, Iverson remains incredibly grounded, insisting that basketball isn’t who he is but simply what he does. Baller, artist, rebel, devoted family man – has been able to thrive as an outspoken start without ever having to compromise who he is.

“A lot of people don’t know I’m just like them...just human. You know, I play with a lot of attitude but they don’t understand when I leave that arena I’m somebody’s husband, I’m somebody’s dad.”
