4. Allen Iverson
Allen Iverson, also known as “AI” or “The Answer” during his career, is one of the NBA’s greatest scorers. Though barely being 6 foot, he played shooting guard most of his career. Heck, he even played that role when he was technically the PG for a team. The one thing everyone loved about AI if nothing else was that he never wanted to leave the court, he was a true ironman.
This led to Iverson leading the NBA in minutes 7 times in his career. Of course, he also led the league in scoring 4 times and still put up insane points per game in the years he didn’t win the scoring title. Despite his impressive scoring ability, the man was an amazing defender. This led to Iverson leading the NBA in steals 3 times in his career. He has a career average of 2.2 steals per game.
Iverson is also an 11-time NBA All-Star who won the NBA MVP award in 2001. Iverson did make it to the NBA Finals but played against the high-powered Los Angeles Lakers squad. He was able to deliver one win, still remembered as one of the greatest NBA Finals performances in history. Sadly, AI retired without an NBA Title.
