Allen Iverson is one of the greatest basketball players of all-time, but the NBA legend believes he would have been even better at another sport.
The former Philadelphia 76ers star appeared on Shannon Sharpe’s podcast, Club Shay Shay, to talk about his football days.
Iverson, a Virginia native, was a dominant high school football quarterback.
“Not being cocky, not being arrogant. I think, no, I know that I would have been a better player at football than I was at basketball. And that’s not disrespecting basketball gods, that’s not disrespecting the game that that’s done so much for me. I mean I’m a household name, I’m a Hall of Famer in that sport, but football was my first love,” Iverson admitted.
Iverson was an 11-time NBA All-Star and the MVP of the league in 2001. So, he must have been one hell of a football player if he believes that was his better sport.
Well, the highlights do not lie.
Iverson took to Twitter on Wednesday to show off his football skills.

Iverson playing quarterback at the college or NFL level would have been very fun to watch.
