Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash may be thankful there are no fans attending Philadelphia 76ers games this season otherwise he’d likely be getting an earful from the Sixers faithful for comments he made on Friday.
Iverson—an 11-time All-Star, four-time scoring champion and Hall of Famer—has a resume that far exceeds anything Irving has accomplished aside from an NBA title. While Irving is averaging a career-best 28.3 points with 5.7 assists this year, Iverson posted a higher scoring average in four seasons of his 14-year career.
That’s to say nothing of being a three-time steals champion, 2001 MVP and two-time All-Star Game MVP.
Those are facts Nash may hear plenty about the next time he pops up in Philadelphia.
