In an interview earlier this week published on, basketball great Allen Iverson tells a story of how he was miraculously beat in a friendly game of H.O.R.S.E. by St. Louis rap icon Nelly back in 1999 when Nelly’s career first took off. Iverson, who was also at the peak of his game at the time, blames it on the alcohol. See the video below for the full interview.
