Allen allen iverson, nba, basketball, documentary, tribeca film festivalIverson is getting the big screen treatment as his life will be documented in an upcoming film detailing the NBA All-Star’s pre and post career legacies. Told through his own words, Iverson will debut April 27 at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, but according to AI’s Twitter, they’re actually looking for an even larger venue to showcase the premiere.

24,368 career points. A player who’s received endless amounts of criticism, on and off the court, it cannot be denied that Allen Iverson has had a monumental impact on professional basketball, both as a player and an individual.

Today is April 24th of 2014. Almost 4 years since his shot in a NBA game, 3 years since his stint in Turkey, 6 months since he announced his retirement, 2 months since his jersey retirement ceremony and 3 days away from the Tribeca Film Festival premier of “Iverson” – a new documentary about Allen Iverson made by director Zatella Beatty.

Ever since he hit MJ with the old 1-2 near the foul line years ago, AI’s name has been stamped on all ball-handling conversation that rose since. He may have been smaller than the rest, but you wouldn’t know it by watching him create magic on the court.

The media has portrayed him in an interesting light (typical), but the hopes for this new documentary is that the truth about his prosperous life will come to light and fans can see who The Answer really is. PRACTICE?!
