Storyline

Iverson is the ultimate legacy of NBA legend Allen Iverson, who rose from a childhood of crushing poverty in Hampton, Virginia, to become an 11-time NBA All-Star and universally recognized icon of his sport. Off the court, his audacious rejection of conservative NBA convention and unapologetic embrace of hip hop culture sent shockwaves throughout the league and influenced an entire generation. Told largely in Iverson's own words, the film charts the career highs and lows of one of the most distinctive and accomplished figures the sport of basketball has ever seen.

Pretty good documentary!! (Said in comically high pitched voice)
3 July 2018 | by tizzanobSee all my reviews

Quite the shambolic retelling of the tragedy/fortunate life that is Iversons. I've never been a big sports guy outside of THPS. However I've been on a big basketball documentary kick lately, and have to say this is one of favorites. Not your typical sports doc, which I think explains the 7.0 average rating. I was shocked to see that after watching it and checking the rating I was thinking it would be 8.0 + easy, and was sadly mistaken.

The new Jim Crowe would be a sensible pairing because of their proquinity in liberal social-political informative similarities. In summary, Iverson is much more of a introspective humanitarian piece, rather than a biopic basketball doc. Like minded people will have an appreciation for its positive informative undertones and overtones of exposing such common injustices.
