In Allen Iverson: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball’s Greatest Shooting Guards, you'll read about the inspirational story of basketball's premier shooting guard, Allen Iverson. Allen Iverson redefined the shooting guard position role in the late 1990s and entering in the 2000s. In an age filled with greats like Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Reggie Miller, and Tim Duncan, Iverson played in one of the most exciting eras of modern basketball. While the Philadelphia 76ers failed to win a ring during Iverson’s tenure, they played some of the most incredible playoff series in NBA history and made it to the NBA Finals in 2000-2001 before ultimately falling to the Los Angeles Lakers. While he may have been controversial in his time playing the game due to what some perceived as an attitude, Allen Iverson always played the game his way, from the very first day he stepped into the NBA until the very last time he stepped off. Allen Iverson remains highly respected by guards all around the league due to the way he redefined the shooting guard position and what was possible for a shooting guard. He was and remains to this day one of the most pure shooting guards to play the game. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Early Life and Childhood College Years at Georgetown AI’s NBA Career Iverson’s Personal Life Allen Iverson’s Impact on Basketball and Beyond Iverson’s Legacy An excerpt from the book: To discuss Allen Iverson is to discuss the importance of narratives in basketball. No NBA player’s legacy has been so starkly divided between those who hail Iverson and those who disdain him. On one side, Allen Iverson was a fearsome, relentless warrior. Despite subpar supporting casts throughout his career, he fought and bled for victory every single game. He had an unparalleled will to win, and inspired fanatical loyalty in his teammates. In one of the greatest performances in NBA history, he stole Game 1 of the NBA Finals against one of the greatest NBA teams ever, the 2001 Los Angeles Lakers. It was Los Angeles’s only defeat on their road to the 2001 championship, and the victory epitomized Iverson’s heart and will. He won a MVP award in 2001, averaged 30 points per game year in and year out, and is without a doubt the greatest little man in NBA history. On the other side, Allen Iverson was a selfish and arrogant team-killer. The subpar supporting casts were in fact a perfect fit for his talents. Iverson’s will only showed when he could dominate the ball as much as he liked, and he promptly threw temper tantrums otherwise. That 2001 MVP should have gone to eventual Finals MVP Shaquille O’Neal, and while that Game 1 performance was impressive, the reality is that the 2001 Philadelphia 76ers squad would have never made it to the NBA Finals if they had not played in a miserable Eastern Conference. He scored many points, but with his flaws and temperament, he was utterly incapable of playing on a championship team.

    Allen Iverson: the inspiring Story of One of one of Basketball's Greatest Shooting Guards, by Clayton Geoffreys is about the life story of the hall of famer Allen Iverson. Allen grew up in Hampton virginia where he was in a poor family. He played football and basketball and could run very fast.

Allen grew up in Hampton virginia where he was in a poor family. He played football and basketball and could run very fast. Most people thought that he was much better at football than basketball, But he chose to go with basketball. He played basketball for georgetown college and later was the first overall pick in the 1996 NBA draft. (The same year as Kobe) After this he was a nba legend, Allen was the 2001 MVP, 11 time all star, Four time scoring champion, Three time steals leader, and 2 time all star game MVP. This book made me feel good because even the people who come from almost nothing can turn into one of most known people in america. IT is worth reading if your into basketball because it is very inspiring. I do think that they went a little too much into depth of Iverson's career and I think It would have been better in they went into more depth for his growing up years. Also I think that some of the stuff at the end was a little unnecessary. But I can make a few connections to his book, Allen reminds me of Kyrie Irving (a basketball player today) because of how good both of them are at dribbles and ball handling and they both are short players and play the guard position. Anyone can be whatever they want to be. Allen Iverson’s chances of making it to the NBA were slim but he made it happen. His family was poor, and he was short, but he kept practicing and he fulfilled his dreams. Once Iverson said, “When you're not practicing someone is just getting better.”

    Good Book This book was short and sweet. The author focused not only on Iverson's basketball talent, but how he influenced an entire generation. His style, attitude and determination were highlighted in this story.

    I thought this was one of the best books I've read ever because of how interesting the book was and how it actually felt like you were at the games he played.
