Iverson Documentary to Premiere at Tribeca Film Festival

Here’s the trailer.

The Iverson documentary premieres Sunday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York:


The festival’s overview: “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. ”

    How about we rename this Movie – What’s wrong with America – Chapter One. Not to diminish his accomplishments and his tenacity . He was perhaps the greatest in terms of overcoming the odds based on his size and weight. He was an unbelievable athlete and I loved to watch him play. The Media and America failed in the long run as it does everyday in making a majority of professional athletes stars above the law and screws with their lives to the point they become a drain on society in the long run.

    And the dumb ass is now broke and we are suppose to feel sorry for this ignorant clown? no way no how


    Great hoops player, immature man off the court. Influenced an entire generation how?
    His actions on the street were clear examples to me of nothing but total disrespect to anything & everyone. Guns,dope,womanizer,lawsuits,bankruptcy,degenerate gambler.
    One of the darker examples was how he would park his Bentley in the handicapped spot at Dave & Busters, what a man. Nova residents threw a block party when he moved.
    Good riddance. I’ll pass on the movie.
