...Tariq. Our friends over at SLAM selected his Iverson memory as their favorite so the Sixers Windbreaker is his. Here's what Tariq had to say:
I had always appreciated Allen Iverson, but I think the moment that made him my favorite player was when he cried after being eliminated by the Charlotte Hornets in 2000. I’ve seen players cry (most recently Bosh). I just felt that at that moment, AI didn’t want anyone to see him weep, but he just couldn’t help it. That made the run to the Finals and the MVP the very next year extremely satisfying for me. Of course, I don’t know Allen Iverson and the way I interpreted that moment may be very different from how he actually felt, but that’s sports fandom, isn’t it?
Don't forget to pick up the 150th SLAM. It's money well spent.
