  • Allen Iverson best handles of all time , so fast , one of the hardest players to guard of all time ,I think earl manigault the guy from rebound movie 96 based in the 60s would of had the same style as Iverson but just add mega hopps ,only one too every do the double dunk with out touching rim on first dunk , only one too be under 6ft and touch the top of the backboard and grab a quarter off the top and he was under. What happened? he got hooked on drugs and never made it . Alot of people disrespect Iverson cause he splashing all his money, saying he stupid, he too hood, he too ghetto, atleast he made it to the NBA and to be one of the best players to ever step foot on the court .

  • Holy mackerel Rodeo Dr shutting down - preparing for looting - see what’s happening ? And the civil war is right around the corner - things are bad really really unspeakable - y’all think it’s a coincidence ? 🙄 seriously ????? There has been one constant four plus years that’s thrown everything else out of balance & it’s this very situation - to not address it and pretend and ignore it has ruined the country - y’all are gonna regret not just speaking and getting things straight - he’s awesome - think playing basketball gives people character - knowing right from wrong - the lessons that are learned are priceless - irreplaceable - makes people better people - the killer crossover - that’s Allen iverson - anyway wish y’all judt did the right thing once in four plus years not one time that’s not having character or integrity or being honest or helpful or cool or decent - that’s troubling to always act so arrogant and obnoxious and be critical and assuming all day everyday - sickening and very damaging and annoying - and unfortunately it’s had some serious consequences this whole time - every passing second it’s getting worse and worse and worse and it’s gonna continue to do that until someone does the right thing - believe whatever you want - won’t change anything - means nothing to me - well if y’all don’t know or do it soon there will be nothing left in America - simple uncomplicated - don’t have yo believe me just look and wait and watch what is gonna be happening - 2500-3000 a day dead -
