Early Life

Iverson was born in Hampton, Virginia, to a single 15-year-old mother, Ann Iverson, and was given his mother’s maiden name after his father Allen Broughton left her.

During his early years in Hampton, Iverson was given the moniker “Bubba Chuck” by a family friend, Jaime Rogers. According to Rogers, Iverson would frequently look out for the younger kids and that he could educate anybody.

When Iverson was 13, his father figure Michael Freeman was arrested in front of him for selling narcotics. Because Iverson was present, he would be classified as an accessory. Freeman’s brother helped Iverson go to a different school in Hampton so he could avoid being punished for the drug charges. Iverson earned the Associated Press High School Player of the Year award twice at Bethel High School, where he completed two years before dropping out.

He began his career as a quarterback for the Bethel High School football team, returning kicks and playing defensive back. He also played running back, kick returner, and point guard for the school’s basketball team during his junior year. Iverson was able to lead both teams to state titles in Virginia while winning The Associated Press High School Player of the Year award two times.

Iverson was also an excellent baseball player in high school, where he batted .480 as a junior and .500 as a senior, but basketball was his passion.

When he became seriously interested in pursuing a career in basketball, Iverson applied for the 1996 NBA draft without informing his mother. He did not hire an agent and attended the draft at the Fleet Center in Boston, where he was selected first overall by the Philadelphia 76ers.

Although it was not customary for players to attend their respective draft ceremony’s, Iverson accepted his selection by sitting in the audience with a borrowed suit instead of remaining on stage.

He played 48 games in the 1996–97 season, averaging 20 points per game and was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. In February of that year, he scored a then-NBA record 61 points against the Orlando Magic, breaking Wilt Chamberlain’s previous single-game scoring mark of 56. In his second season, he led his team to an Atlantic Division title and the playoffs for the first time in six years.

In 2003, Iverson averaged 26 points per game during an injury-riddled season and was forced to miss the final 26 games due to an ankle injury after playing just 45 games. The 76ers finished out of the playoffs for the first time in 14 years, but Iverson went on to win his fourth scoring title that year.

During Iverson’s tenure with the Sixers during the 2003–04 season, he had a very public feud with the Sixers’ head coach Larry Brown. Iverson was fined $25,000 by then-Commissioner David Stern for criticizing referees and not wanting to play in a game when he felt sick.

After announcing his intentions to leave Philadelphia on October 30, 2006, Iverson was traded to the Denver Nuggets in exchange for guard Andre Miller on December 19, 2006.

Iverson continued wearing the number 3 for the Nuggets before officially retiring it on March 24, 2012. He wore it one more time, in December of that year to honor Carmelo Anthony for setting the franchise record for most points in a game at 30.

On August 20, 2009 Iverson agreed to a one-year deal with the Pistons, who at that time hadn’t won a playoff game since 1991.

Allen Iverson's Lessons Of Success

Be Fearless – One story that AI shared with me was his first time playing against Michael Jordan. He himself admits that he is a big Jordan fan, and he said that during warm-ups he kept looking down to the other side of the court because he’d never seen him in person before. But as soon as the ball was thrown up for the start of the game, he blocked out all distractions and rose to the occasion. He played with fearlessness and absolutely dominated MJ in a big win for his Sixers.

Your Attitude and Mentality Are Everything – Knowing how to control your mentality and attitude. One thing that separates a lot of streetball players and NBA players is not their talent level, rather what is going on in their heads. AI is very aware of what his mentality and attitude is, and always stays positive.

AI’s Advice For Youngsters – “I would say to the younger generation, you have to work hard. You know I worked extremely hard to be where I am today. There was no one that was going to stop me from being my best. I know that if I do the work then it will pay off. So just to everyone, even though there are so many distractions nowadays, you have to stay focused and not let anything get in your way.”
