Read more about Allen Iverson: There are lots of great players in the NBA...and then there's Allen Iverson. At a mere six feet and 165 lbs., the guy has no business - physically speaking, anyway - being on the court with the likes of Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett. And yet, when Iverson gets his hands on the ball, NBA fans everywhere move to the edge of their seats. As quick as the Flash, as mentally aware as Charles Xavier, as accurate as Bullseye and as capable of bodily manipulation as Plastic Man, Allen Iverson transforms into a veritable comic book hero once the ball is tipped, capable of scoring from anywhere on the floor and lifting an entire team onto his shoulders. And with his cornrows-and-tattoos look and his toughness and hard-nosed determination, he has both old-school and new-school appeal to spare. There's no 'S' on his chest, but Allen Iverson is as close to a costumed superhuman as we're going to get in basketball.
The thing is, by any practical measuring stick, Iverson shouldn't even be in the NBA. The guy is short, even for a guard, and his ankles, while not exactly toothpick-esque in circumference, certainly look like they don't have the strength to take a pro basketball-type pounding. In comparison to an ordinary human like you and I, Iverson might be all jacked, but compared to the behemoths that patrol the paint in the NBA, he's not Mr. Universe. To see him in person is to realize that people can achieve beyond their physical limitations. Of course, it helps when you're blessed with an amount of talent that would make mortal men recoil in fear like cavemen hiding from the sun. The man has quicks that leave more ordinary players searching for their jockey shorts on the way back to the offensive end of the court. Those thin ankles support stutter-step moves in a heartbeat, and by the time you notice what's going on, Iverson's on his way to the hoop. He also has ups to spare, so while those of us who stand at or close to six feet can feel good about maybe touching the rim, he can throw down on a fast break like a man of much greater height.
