Allen Iverson Showtime Documentary

Allen Iverson Showtime Documentary

Allen Iverson is an icon in pop culture. He transcended the National Basketball Association to become a part of hip-hop culture and to represent all that the media said was wrong with the young black male. AI epitomized thug life and was as much a cultural figure in urban areas as Tupac and Biggie. He wasn’t just image and swagger though. His play screamed substance and his heart was as big as they came. A little man in a big mans game he dominated for over a decade and led his team, the 76ers to an NBA final literally by himself. Once in a lifetime does a player like AI come along but his legend is bigger then the game. He came to represent hip-hop and the inner city culture which spawned him. AI never betrayed his roots and kept it one hundred. His critics will say he kept it to real. But that was just how AI rolled. There was no faking it to him. He was going to be himself and the league be damned. AI set trends. Not only with his play but with his style. There is a new documentary out about the man that celebrates his fame and infamy.
