BY: Michael Geslani
Today is Allen Iverson’s birthday and to celebrate Reebok is releasing the “White Party” Questions below:
Here at Tucked Laces we decided to celebrate one of the greatest NBA players by highlighting some of his career-highs with Career High:
50 pts vs Cavaliers 1997 Rookie Season – AI had a stellar rookie season and the number 1 draft pick took little time to show why he was a force to reckon with by scoring 40 or more points in four consecutive NBA games with a 50 game career-high against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
54 pts vs Raptors 2001 Playoff Game 1 & 52 pts vs Raps Game 5 – The remarkable 2001 Philadelphia Sixer’s run to the finals started with AI putting up 54 points against the Toronto Raptors in game 2 of the 2001 playoffs then days after scoring 52 points to blow out the Raptors in Game 5.
48 pts vs Lakers 2001 NBA Finals Game 1 – AI made it to the finals with a squad that wasn’t very talented in 2001 but he did manage to steal game 1 against a deep Lakers squad. He scored 48 points, with six assists and five steals, in leading the 76ers over the Lakers, 107-101, in Game 1 of the 2001 NBA Finals.
60 pts vs Magic 2005 Regular Season – AI had to do Dwight Howard dirty his rookie year by dropping his career-high 60 points with six assists and five steals on route to winning 112-99.
$40,000 vs Strip Club 2005-06 Season – This isn’t quite a career-high but we decided at Tucked Laces this goes down as one of the most trill things we heard about AI was from his former teammate Matt Barnes, who told Sports Illustrated last year, “Allen was the first guy that showed me how NBA players spend money in strip clubs,” Barnes says. “That guy went. HARD. He’d throw so much money, and this was when I was first in the league, that I used to take my foot and scoop the s— under my chair and either re-throw it or put some in my pocket. He’d throw $30,000, $40,000 every time we went. I’m like, ‘You realize what I can do with this money?’”
