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.

Brilliant documentary
30 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

This was a great inspirational, motivational movie. Before this movie, I had no idea who Iverson was . After this movie, he was my favorite player. Even though Iversons presence in the world wasn't as impacting as people like Muhammad ali or Martin Luther Kings presence was, this film made it seem like it was.

This film shows you many things you probably didn't know about the man who could have and was one of the greatest athletes , not just for what he did on the court , but also off the court. Despite this film being a documentary, it was made in a story-like fashion. It was also made in chronological order , which adds to it being an even better story/documentary.Since this movie is expressing Iversons passion for the sport , it can be touching for basketball lovers. I felt slightly emotional towards the end of the movie. I strongly recommend this film for basketball fans , sport fanatics or anyone interested in important figures in the history of sport. Its suitable and interesting for any audience , that's what makes such a great film.
