Isaiah Thomas is a better version of Iverson? Just nine all star appearances, seven all-NBAs, an MVP and all he’ll have to do it carry a team to the finals.
The point of this article was that pace and space has allowed IT to succeed in a way he couldn’t have fifteen or fifty years ago. A league in which Iverson dominated. To assume that this adoption of successful offensive strategies and skills would for some reason not have aided AI in the same way it did IT, Harden, Westbrook and Curry is asinine.
“Iverson’s career will be picked apart by an army of statisticians looking for various ways to undermine his career”.
That’s what Simmons himself said in his basketball encyclopedia. Now he’s one of them.
