Letter To Allen Iverson

March 11, 2010

Dear Allen Iverson,

You’ve been marvelized, criticized and scrutinized,

But in this toughest time, just continue to keep your head up to the sky!

You’re the realest to ever step on the hardwood,

No disrespect to MJ, Kobe, or Magic but they never represented the hood.

You’re Tupac in gym shoes, Muhammad Ali in a jersey,

I remember when you killed my Lakers in Game 1 of the finals and showed Tyronn Lue no mercy.

That hurt me! But at the end of the day it didn’t surprise me coming from league’s MVP.

As a rookie you changed the game,

Even with the fame, you never changed, and always stayed the same.

For most people, being real on the highest level is a tough task,

But with your past, you did it with ease no matter what the media asked.

The passion, swagger, and hunger you played with has always given me inspiration,

So if you dont ever play another game of basketball, you will always have my admiration.

I remember meeting you for the first time when you played the Celtics in your first home game as a Piston,

It was the first and only time that I’ve been starstruck,

But you know what?

I’m happy to say that it was when I seen the great Bubbachuck.
