Allen Iverson turns 38 today. We're not here to talk about his recent struggles, we're here to celebrate his great NBA career. Listed at a generous 6'0", Iverson played like he was 6'7" and put the work in to be referred to as one of the greatest players ever. He played both guard positions, but he made his name as a shooting guard. Once Larry Brown made him switch positions, AI took the league by storm, winning All-Star and season MVPs and making Finals appearances. But he was selfish and didn't make teammates better. That being said, he still captured our hearts by the way he played through injuries and left it all out on the floor.
So now we explore his place among the greatest two guards to ever put on an NBA uniform. Unless you live under a rock, you should already know who numbers one and two are. Where does A.I. rank over the likes of Ray Allen, Reggie Miller, and Sam Jones? Or legends like Bill Sharman, David Thompson, and Clyde Drexler? You'll be surprised where we put him (or maybe not). In honor of The Answer's birthday, here are the 25 Greatest Shooting Guards in NBA History.
