Allen Iverson Speaks On Meeting Michael Jordan And Knowing The Notorious B.I.G. (Video)

Wow. A.I. knew Biggie like that. Got to think about that music project he was determined to drop at risk of torpedoing his pro ball career back in the day. Birds of a feather and such; wondering if he got a push, nod (or unh!) from Biggie if that rap career would have taken off.

(Okay, done thinking… NO WAY anybody gives up multiple MILLIONS for playing ball under contract for a ‘chance’ to make ‘some money’ in the rap game. NBA ‘bankshots’ paid WAY more than the ‘bank’ A.I. would have gotten as a rapper.
