And I say learn your hairstyles. That obviously is not the same hairstyle Allen Iverson wore. And Bo Derek surely didn't invent that hairstyle.

And if Bo Derek wants to go around wearing the hairstyle that was around hundreds of years before she walked on this earth, that's her business. Not to mention plenty of women were wearing that style in the '70s before her few minutes of fame on "10."

And unless you have pictures of Allen Iverson wearing his hair in small braids hanging on his shoulders with small beads attached on the end, then it's not remotely the same hairstyle.

Ant, meet my boot.

Re: Best Player to Wear #3?

So AI goes on spring break and gets corn rows from a lady on the beach and he's thug for it?

Re: Best Player to Wear #3?

I was under the impression these guys were talking about his influence on the game, which was absolutely negative. It runs along the same tracks as the "any press is good press" theory. After his emergence, PG-sized combo-guards who wanted to score above all sprang up by the dozen. It has hurt the league, but you can say it was "influential." I think we're seeing a turn toward valuing efficiency and positive team play again now.

Re: Best Player to Wear #3?

I was talking about whoever brought it up before you, mainly. His off-court influence was also pernicious.

Allen Iverson's off-the-court influence was marginal, and that also was perceived as negative.

Re: Best Player to Wear #3?

This is pretty easily Wade. Paul could change that by the end of his career, but I doubt it.

As far as AI vs Wade, I don't see the arguments that could be made for Iverson. Just Wade hating.


And yes Hyperion, I saw the Starbury reference, and I did appreciate it.
