Allen Iverson 2008 NBA All Star Highlight LeBron James MVP

Описание

With a late rally, Allen Iverson is an All-Star starter again.

Iverson surged from behind in the fan voting to earn a starting spot in next month's game when the vote totals were released Thursday night. Denver Nuggets teammate Carmelo Anthony will join him in New Orleans after earning his first starting nod.

Iverson rallied to pass Houston's Tracy McGrady in the final weeks of voting to earn his first start since moving to the Western Conference early last season. He started seven straight All-Star Games while playing for Philadelphia, but fell short last year after the 76ers dealt him to the Nuggets in December 2006.

The two-time MVP of the All-Star Game beat McGrady by 10,410 votes and will make his ninth appearance on Feb. 17 in New Orleans.

"It's a good feeling. I think it's a tribute to my teammates and coaching staff because without those guys none of that would be possible," Iverson said in a statement. "But most of all I just want to thank the fans for appreciating what I go out and do on the court night in and night out. It's just a great feeling and an honor, and I'm just looking forward to trying to play the best that I can play for the fans."

Iverson was more than 80,000 votes behind McGrady, who has struggled with injuries this season, when the final update was released two weeks ago. He ended up with 1,203,152 votes. McGrady finished with 1,192,742.

Allen Iverson & Michael Jordan FULL Highlights in 2003 NBA All Star Game HD!!

Allen Iverson & Michael Jordan FULL Highlights in 2003 NBA All Star Game HD!!

In his last All-Star Game, Michael Jordan was the main man during all the night. Before the game began, Vince Carter finally offered him his starting spot. Both T-Mac and Iverson had suggested to Jordan to start in their place. Michael started the game erratic, missing 8 of his 10 first shots, but the other players did not play better. The first quarter was the lowest scoring opening period in 50 years (18-23), and the first half the lowest since 1976 (55-52). At halftime Jordan was serenaded by Mariah Carey in a ceremony where the singer performed 3 songs including the theme Hero. The third quarter was played in a higher pace. McGrady scored 17 points to give the East a 93-86 advantage with 12 minutes left. With 2:04 to go in the period, Jordan sank two free throws to score his 252 point in the All-Star Game and surpass Abdul-Jabbar as the leading scorer at that time. In the last quarter Iverson & Jordan kept the East leading in the scoreboard, but the West could tie the game in the last minutes (120-120). The first OT almost finished with another memorable game winning shot by Jordan, who sank a jumper over Shawn Marion with 5 seconds left. But the last play still has a surprise with Jermaine O'Neal fouling Kobe Bryant's 3 pointer attempt. Kobe only scored two free throws, and the game went into a second overtime (138-138). This extra-time was Kevin Garnett Show. He made 7 points and collected his first All-Star Game MVP with 37 points on 17-24 FG. Ben Wallace and Brad Miller became the second/third undrafted player to participate in the NBA All-Star Game, John Starks in 1994 was the first. MVP: Kevin Garnett (West)

Allen Iverson 37pts 8asts vs King James Cavaliers 07/08 NBA

Allen Iverson 37pts 8asts vs King James Cavaliers 07/08 NBA

Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James were the headliners, but Allen Iverson and J.R. Smith stole the show. Iverson scored a season-high 37 points and Smith added 29 to help the Denver Nuggets beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 122-100 on Monday night. "They didn't steal my spotlight," said Anthony, who had 22 points and nine rebounds. "They did what they were supposed to do. They took advantage of the defense that they threw at us." Iverson set the tone early with his sharp shooting. He had 18 points at halftime, when the Nuggets took a 58-43 lead. He came out firing in the second half, scoring 11 points in the first six minutes, including two 3-poiners, to push Denver's lead to 78-51. "I got into a rhythm in the second half," said Iverson, who finished 14-for-20 from the field and added eight assists. "The basket looked like an ocean; I was throwing rocks in. It feels good when you catch a rhythm like that." James led Cleveland with 27 points, but the Nuggets were able to contain the rest of the Cavaliers. "Even though LeBron had a great game, his great game came from getting fouled," Nuggets coach George Karl said. "We took away what we wanted to take away, him making other people better." The Cavaliers struggled offensively. They shot 41.9 percent from the field and were 21-for-38 from the foul line. "I'm not too disappointed," James said. "We did a lot of things that we wanted to do differently. We didn't execute offensively or defensively. I think we tried to do some things right." Even though his team was playing its fifth game in seven days, Cavaliers head coach Mike Brown said fatigue was not an excuse. "Denver got off a [four]-game road trip in a short amount of time," he said. "It wasn't as if they were sitting here for five days waiting on us." The Nuggets (5-3) were coming off a dramatic win in Indiana on Saturday, when they rallied from 25 down to beat the Pacers. "We rode that momentum from the last game," Iverson said. "The confidence level was high, coming back from 25 down." The Nuggets led by as many as 27 in the second half Monday, but Shannon Brown hit two jumpers to start the final period that cut Denver's lead to 88-72. That's when Smith came alive. He scored 15 points in the fourth quarter and was 4-for-5 from behind the 3-point line to push the lead back to 25. "I just did what my team needed me to do -- make open shots, get my teammates the ball, rebound and play defense," Smith said. "Just go out there and have fun." The Cavaliers (4-4) trailed 21-18 after the first quarter despite shooting 25 percent. Cleveland benefited from seven Denver turnovers that helped keep the score close. The Nuggets used a 13-2 run, highlighted by an Iverson alley-oop pass to Smith, to take a 39-24 with 5:52 left in the first half. The Cavaliers (4-4) got within 11, but two 3-pointers by Smith at the end of the second quarter gave the Nuggets a 15-point lead at the break. Cleveland guard Larry Hughes didn't finish the game. After missing a 3-pointer with 7:42 left in the first half, Hughes felt he had been fouled and had some words for referee Bill Spooner, who quickly gave Hughes two technical fouls and ejected him. "I got hit four straight times on four jump shots by Melo," he said. "I got smacked good on four straight shots. I asked him to call a foul. I said what needed to be said." Game notes The Nuggets are 7-2 against Cleveland since Anthony and James joined the league in 2003. ... The 122 points were the most Cleveland has surrendered since allowing 120 to Philadelphia on Nov. 19, 2005, which was Brown's first year on the bench. ... Cavaliers G/F Sasha Pavlovic did not play. Pavlovic experienced back spasms against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night and left the game in the second quarter. ... Smith's 29 points were a season high.

Kobe Bryant NEVER forgot Allen Iverson after this game *AI 41pts (1999)

AI scored 41 points on Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal the Lakers and that's a wakeup call for Kobe NBA And AI as a competitor, he drove me to be as obsessive, more obsessive about the game, because I had to figure out how to solve that problem, you know? And I told him -- I saw him here this weekend. I said you don't realize how much you pushed me. And I don't think people nowadays realize how great you were as a player and how big of a problem you were for defenses. Happy for them both.

Allen Iverson & Michael Jordan 2003 NBA All Star Highlight

Allen Iverson & Michael Jordan 2003 NBA All Star Highlight

Michael Jordan got the start and provided one more lasting moment. But it was all Kevin Garnett at the finish. The 52nd NBA All-Star Game was Jordan's last and filled with firsts as the Western Conference exhausted the Eastern Conference 155-145 in a double-overtime thriller. Given a surprise start as Toronto's Vince Carter stepped aside, Jordan appeared to make yet another of his seemingly endless series of game-winning shots. The superstar swingman of the Washington Wizards threw in a high-arcing jumper from the right baseline over Phoenix's Shawn Marion that gave the East a 138-136 lead with 4.8 seconds left in the first overtime, bringing a roar from the Philips Arena crowd. "I didn't think it was going to go in, but it went in," said Marion, who was victimized for a game-winning shot by Jordan in Phoenix last season. "I thought it was the game-winner, but anything can happen in an NBA game," Jordan said. Anything did. A foul call on a three-point attempt put Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant at the line for three free throws with one second to go. Bryant made just two free throws to tie the game. "The first thing when Kobe got up, he said, 'I can't believe he called that,'" said Indiana forward Jermaine O'Neal, who committed the foul. Bryant's free throws forced an unprecedented second extra session, which belonged entirely to Garnett. The 7-footer of the Minnesota Timberwolves -- who played shooting guard earlier in the game -- took the smaller Carter into the low post for three straight jumpers. He added a foul shot for a 145-138 lead with 3:38 remaining, and the West never trailed again. "It looked like old 23 crept back in the building and was trying to take the game, but for the most part, we hung together and won," Garnett said. Garnett collected his first All-Star Game MVP award as he scored 37 points on 17-of-24 shooting and added nine rebounds and five steals. His points were the most in an All-Star Game since Jordan scored 40 in 1988. "The All-Star Game is not about individual," said Garnett, an unselfish superstar. "It's totally a group effort. It's a time for you to share stories, good times, emotional times with your teammates." Jordan, who turns 40 in eight days, gave Garnett some stories to share. He started very slowly and even missed a dunk in the first quarter. But he became the all-time leading scorer in the All-Star Game late in the third quarter and finished with 20 points on 9-of-27 shooting. "I think I got a chance to enjoy some good young company tonight," Jordan said. Some of that company joined Jordan on the Eastern Conference. Guards Allen Iverson of Philadelphia and Tracy McGrady of Orlando -- both of whom offered their starting spot to Jordan -- scored 35 and 29 points, respectively. But it wasn't enough to prevent the East from dropping to 32-20 in the all-time series. "I was going to try to forget my jersey in the locker room," McGrady said. "That way (Jordan) had to start and go out there." Bryant scored 22 points and Steve Francis of Houston added 20 for the West, which erased an eight-point deficit in the last two minutes of regulation and blew a seven-point lead in the last two-plus minutes of the first overtime. San Antonio's Tim Duncan had 19 points and 15 rebounds and the Lakers' Shaquille O'Neal had 19 and 13. It was the sixth overtime All-Star Game and the first since 1993 in Utah. Although the first quarter was the lowest-scoring opening period in 50 years and the first half the lowest since 1976, the game fell three points shy of the highest-scoring contest, another overtime affair in 1987. The pace seemed to quicken a bit after a halftime ceremony in which Jordan was serenaded by Mariah Carey, who wore No. 23 jerseys of Chicago and Washington while performing three songs, including "Hero." "I thank you for your support," a visibly humbled Jordan said to the crowd. "I leave the game in good hands." "The halftime ceremony was something I'll remember for a long time," said Francis, who was playing in his second All-Star Game. "I felt like he was talking to me when he said the NBA was going to be in good hands." McGrady took the third quarter into his hands, scoring 17 points to give the East a 93-86 lead. With 2:04 to go in the period, Jordan sank two free throws to move past Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (251 points) as the all-time leading scorer. The West overtook the East at 102-100 on a dunk by Shaquille O'Neal with 8:14 to go, but McGrady responded with a three-pointer. Three jumpers by Jordan and a drive by Iverson pushed the lead to 116-106 left and tightened the MVP race. It appeared to be Jordan's when he flipped in a left-handed shot on 7-footer Dirk Nowitzki of Dallas for a 120-112 lead with 1:58 to play. But he missed shots on three consecutive possessions, allowing the West back in it. "I wanted it to be a competitive game," Jordan said. "It was a fun ending anyway you look at it." Bryant had a chance to win it when he was fouled with 17 seconds left but split the pair, and Marion partially blocked Jordan's jumper at the other end. Despite eight overtime points from Iverson, the East looked dead when Francis hammered home a lob for a 135-128 bulge with 2:09 remaining. But McGrady and New Jersey's Jason Kidd scored four points each as the East surged to a 136-135 edge with 33 seconds left. A free throw by Shaquille O'Neal tied it. "It's easy to come in with the attitude that you are just going to run down the court and jump around and not play hard, but that's not what it is about," Iverson said. "I think the fans deserve more than that." The fans got a huge treat when Carter -- who had been criticized for keeping his starting spot -- stepped aside for Jordan in a classy move. "This is a storybook ending for Michael," Carter said. "I'm sure I'll have another opportunity to be in the All-Star Game, and this is how it's supposed to be." "I felt like he had taken a beating and he shouldn't have," Jordan said. "I think he was being very respectful." But Jordan missed eight of his first 10 shots, and the poor shooting was contagious. The East held a pedestrian 23-18 lead after one period and the West held a 55-52 halftime edge.

Allen Iverson 25pts Highlight NBA All Star 2001 MVP *Best All Star Game ever

Allen Iverson 25pts Highlight NBA All Star 2001 MVP *Best All Star Game ever

A stunning fourth-quarter comeback led by Allen Iverson. A thrilling final-minute shootout between Stephon Marbury and Kobe Bryant. The ball in Bryant's hands for the last shot. A pass that no one expected. A last-second miss. A postgame celebration worthy of June. Yes, it was quite an All-Star Game. Iverson, Marbury and his Eastern Conference teammates transformed what looked like a blowout loss into an improbable 111-110 victory Sunday in a performance fitting of the 50th anniversary of the game. "It was like a championship game out there," Dikembe Mutombo said. "I've been in the All-Star Game the last seven years, and I've never seen anything like this." It was the kind of game that might stop people dismissing the East as far weaker than the West, the kind of game that might make the casual fan appreciate the heart and determination of some of the younger stars trying to seize the spotlight in the post-Jordan era. Mostly, it was kind of game that any fan of any sport would prefer to see — a riveting one. Iverson scored 15 of his 25 points in the final nine minutes, and Marbury hit two three-pointers in the final 53 seconds as the East came back from a 21-point deficit. Bryant, the NBA's leading scorer, could have taken the last shot. Instead, in a shock to everyone sitting in the building and watching on television, he threw a pass that resulted in a last-second miss by Tim Duncan. "Everybody was saying we couldn't win because of our size. It's not about size. It's about the size of your heart," Iverson said. "Coming into the fourth quarter, we were all sitting on the sidelines saying 'Why not us? Why can't we be the ones to come back from a 19-point deficit (after three quarters) in an All-Star Game?"

Allen Iverson Career High 60pts vs the Dwight Howard Orlando Magic 04/05

Allen Iverson Career High 60pts vs the Dwight Howard Orlando Magic 04/05

Three-time scoring champ hits career high Allen Iverson gave the crowd an electrifying performance to remember. Then the fans returned the favor with raucous ovations he won't soon forget. "That's when you get the goose bumps," Iverson said. "You honestly don't really feel it when the shots are going down. You don't ever get the goose bumps until the fans start to appreciate what you're doing out there." The Philadelphia star scored 60 points, a career high and the most in the NBA this season, to lead the 76ers to a 112-99 victory over the Orlando Magic on Saturday night. Iverson, averaging an NBA-leading 29.7 points, was 17-of-36 from the field and made 24 of 27 free throws. His previous high was 58 against Houston on Jan. 15, 2002. "I score a career high and we won the game," Iverson said. "That's how you draw it up in your dreams." It was the first 60-point game in the NBA since Tracy McGrady scored 62 for Orlando against Washington on March 10, 2004, Indiana's Jermaine O'Neal had the previous high in the NBA this season, scoring 55 points against Milwaukee on Jan. 4. Iverson, who had 54- and 51-point performances in consecutive games in December, also had the fourth-highest total in 76ers' history, behind only Wilt Chamberlain. Iverson scored 29 points in the first half, banging and crashing all over the court while helping the 76ers turn it into a rout. After Orlando went on a mini-run in the third that cut a 25-point deficit to 11, Iverson hit a 3-pointer from the right side as time expired to reach 40. Then Iverson earned a standing ovation for points 50 and 51. He stole the ball and was fouled hard on a layup attempt, slamming against the floor as he seemingly always does. The crowd erupted and stood in appreciation for Iverson, who went to the line and made a couple of free throws. It was the same for points 59 and 60 -- two more free throws. The fans were on their feet each time Iverson had the ball in the fourth quarter, giving a routine game the feel of a Game 7. "When they're up, when they're making noise and they're feeling good, that makes you feel good, that makes you feel good about people coming out to see you," Iverson said. "It's something they might remember and cherish for the rest of their lives." The game certainly left an impression on Sixers coach Jim O'Brien. "I've never witnessed a performance like this," O'Brien said. "This is the greatest performance I've ever witnessed." Iverson was consistent from the start, scoring 17 points in the first quarter, 12 in the second, 11 in the third, and 20 in the fourth. Eleven of his fourth-quarter points came from the line. "It was just attacking, attacking, attacking all night," Iverson said. "I guess that's why I went to the free-throw line as much as I did. I didn't settle for jump shots." The 76ers pulled within one game of Boston for the Atlantic Division lead and are one game under .500 (25-26). They haven't been at .500 since they were 6-6 on Nov. 26 and haven't had a winning record since they were 4-2 on Nov. 14. Maybe Philadelphia needs more 40-point games from Iverson -- the 76ers are 5-1 when he reaches that mark this season. Iverson also had his ninth 50-point regular-season game. He's scored 50-plus three times in the playoffs. Corliss Williamson added 18 points for the 76ers. He started in place of Kenny Thomas, sidelined by a back injury. Steve Francis scored 32 points for the Magic, and Grant Hill had 16. "It was one of those nights from a superstar performer," said Magic coach Johnny Davis, who coached Iverson in his rookie season (1996-97). "We had different defenders on him all night. He just had a dominant game."

NBA Greatest Duels: Allen Iverson vs. Tracy McGrady (2004) *Scoring champion matchup

NBA Greatest Duels: Allen Iverson vs. Tracy McGrady (2004) *Scoring champion matchup

Allen Iverson regained his scoring touch in time to save the Philadelphia 76ers. Still struggling with his shooting following a knee injury, Iverson scored 26 points -- his most in more than a month -- in Philadelphia's 87-82 victory over Orlando on Monday night. Iverson has only been back a week after sitting out 10 games because of a bruised right knee. But he has a while to go to regain his All-Star form. "My rhythm is way off. I'm struggling," said Iverson, shooting 37 percent in five games since returning. "It's frustrating that it's taking so long for my game to come back. But by being in the league eight years, I've been through struggles and I know how to play while struggling." Philadelphia took control midway through the third quarter with 11 straight points to go up 68-60. Orlando's Keith Bogans stopped the run with a jumper despite being knocked down, but Iverson seized the momentum back with his lone 3-pointer of the night. Iverson shot 9-for-29, 1-for-4 on 3-pointers, with seven assists and six turnovers. The last time he topped 20 points was Dec. 5, when he scored 35 in a victory in Miami. The 76ers are 3-2 since Iverson returned. "The games we lose, it hurts worse," Iverson said. "But in the games that we win, I don't think about it." Samuel Dalembert set career highs with 15 points and 11 rebounds. He fouled out late in the game, but only after his block of Tracy McGrady's driving dunk with 2:54 remaining blunted Orlando's comeback. Dalembert, who blocked three shots, started because Derrick Coleman missed his 12th game of the season with a left knee sprain. "Samuel was great in terms of defending the rim," 76ers coach Randy Ayers said. Glenn Robinson added 19 points, and Kenny Thomas and Eric Snow each added 13. Thomas also tied his season high with 16 rebounds. The 76ers missed 14 of 17 shots in the fourth quarter, including their last 10, with their final field goal coming on Dalembert's jumper with 7:32 remaining. But they made eight of 10 late free throws to hold off the Magic. Orlando has lost seven of eight and missed a chance to move into a tie with Atlanta for the league's worst record. McGrady scored 32 points for Orlando, including 10 of the Magic's 16 in the fourth quarter. He also had 10 rebounds. Less than 17 seconds remained when Orlando closed within a possession on McGrady's layup. But Snow hit two free throws and McGrady missed a 3-pointer with 8.9 seconds to go. McGrady missed all nine of his 3-point tries, shooting 13-for-30. "Shots were going in and out, good shots," McGrady said. "I'd take those shots any game. It just wasn't our night on the offensive end." Bogans added 20 points, shooting 6-for-10 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line. He opened Orlando's scoring with a 3-pointer, but the Magic shot 1-for-17 beyond the arc after that. "I guess I had an 'on' game tonight," said Bogans, 2-for-5 on 3-pointers. "I made shots, but I can't speak for anybody else." Orlando shot 36 percent -- 26.2 percent after halftime. The 76ers jumped out to an early 11-point lead by making 11 of their first 20 shots -- despite six misses from Iverson. Dalembert made all four of his shots in the first quarter while grabbing seven rebounds. Game notes Philadelphia got no scoring from its bench until Greg Buckner's free throw with 5.7 seconds left to play ... NBA commissioner David Stern attended the game. Stern is in Florida for a sporting goods show in Orlando and the league's marketing meetings in Boca Raton. ... Philadelphia is 14-4 when holding opponents 86 points or less. ... During a second-quarter break in the action, McGrady amazed the crowd with a trick shot. He tossed up a rainbow from behind the backboard that bounced off the top of the glass before falling through the hoop.

Allen Iverson vs Michael Jordan (Final NBA Game) Part 2

Allen Iverson vs Michael Jordan (Final NBA Game) Part 2

Michael Jordan's coach pleaded with him to go back in the game, and the opposing coach made sure Jordan had the chance to end his career with a basket. Jordan's last shot was a free throw, and like his final appearance in an NBA uniform, it was good. One of the greatest players in NBA history played the final game of his illustrious career Wednesday night, not in the setting that he would have preferred but in a special atmosphere nonetheless. Jordan's final moment on the court ended with him receiving applause and a lengthy standing ovation from nearly everyone in the arena -- including the coaches and the other players. He soaked it all up with a wide smile and a wave to the crowd after exiting for good with 1:44 remaining in the fourth quarter of a 107-87 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. ``Now I guess it hits me that I'm not going to be in a uniform anymore -- and that's not a terrible feeling,'' Jordan said afterward. ``It's something that I've come to grips with, and it's time. This is the final retirement.'' Jordan finished with 15 points, four rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes -- drawing several adoring ovations from the last sellout crowd that will ever watch him play. ``The Philly people did a great job. They gave me the biggest inspiration, in a sense,'' Jordan said. ``Obviously, they wanted to see me make a couple of baskets and then come off. That was very, very respectful, and I had a good time.'' Jordan's final points almost looked scripted, with Eric Snow of the 76ers fouling him in the backcourt for no apparent reason except to send him to the line. ``Coach (Larry Brown) told me to foul him, get him to the line to get some points and get him out of there,'' Snow said. Both foul shots went in, and the Wizards committed a foul one second later so that Jordan could be removed from the game and receive the proper send-off. In a rare scene, the 10 players who remained on the court turned to Jordan and applauded, too. The 40-year-old Jordan would have preferred to end his career in the playoffs, but the Wizards never clicked during his two years in Washington and finished 37-45 in both seasons. But that was merely a footnote on this stirring night, the last time the basketball public was treated to one of the greatest athletes in history playing the game one last time. Jordan finished his career with 32,292 points -- the third-highest total in league history, behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone. His final career average of 30.12 goes down as the best in NBA history, just ahead of Wilt Chamberlain's 30.07. ``I never, never took the game for granted. I was very true to the game, and the game was very true to me. It was just that simple,'' Jordan said. With the Sixers ahead by 21 points with 9 1/2 minutes remaining, the crowd began chanting ``We want Mike.'' The chant grew louder as the period progressed with Jordan remaining seated, and fans ignored the game to stand and stare at the Wizards' bench, wondering why Jordan wasn't playing. This being Philadelphia, they eventually booed. Jordan finally pulled his warmups off and re-entered the game with 2:35 left for his brief final appearance. ``I played here. I told him I at least have to be able to come back (to Philadelphia),'' Wizards coach Doug Collins said. ``I told him to go back in for a minute. He said, 'I'm stiff.' I said, 'Please. They want to see you.' He said, 'Larry Hughes is going to foul out soon, so put me in then.''' Earlier in the game, Jordan showed his age. There was a play in the first quarter when he looked like the Jordan of old, except for the result. Starting near the foul line, Jordan ducked his shoulder, lowered his head, stuck out his tongue and drove to his right, the ball rolling off his fingers ever so softly as it arched toward the net. Rather than going in, though, the ball hit the front rim and missed -- one of several of his shots that came up a few inches short. One of the exceptions was Jordan's final shot of the first half -- a one-handed dunk that came after he received a nice pass under the basket from Bobby Simmons. Jordan hit his first two shots of the third quarter but didn't do much else positive in the period. On an alley-oop pass from Tyronn Lue, the ball hit him in the fingertips and bounced harmlessly away. A lazy crosscourt pass was picked off by Aaron McKie, leading to one of Philadelphia's 31 fast-break points. Jordan's final field-goal attempt was a missed layup with 8:13 remaining. ``I'm not embarrassed,'' Jordan said, ``but it's just not ... I've had better feelings in terms of playing a competitive game.'' The standing ovation that Jordan received lasted about three minutes, with Jordan smiling, nodding and chewing gum throughout. The group Boyz II Men sang ``It's So Hard To Say Goodbye'' between the first and second quarters as a montage of Jordan's career highlights was shown on the scoreboard.

Allen Iverson 41pts Break Kobe's Ankle vs Shaq Lakers 98/99

Allen Iverson 41pts Break Kobe's Ankle vs Shaq Lakers 98/99

Allen Iverson's eighth career 40-point game had a nice little unexpected bonus -- a victory for the Philadelphia 76ers. Iverson scored 41 points, upstaging Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant, as the 76ers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers, 105-90, for their fourth win in five games. In two-plus seasons, Iverson had seven previous games with 40 or more points and the 76ers lost them all. On February 12, the NBA scoring leader had a league season-high 46 points in a 98-94 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. "When I score 40 points, we've lost," Iverson said. "Tonight, we won, and I guess I finally got the monkey off my back. I didn't know what I had until I came out of the game at the end and looked up at the scoreboard. I saw what I had and said, `I hope it doesn't come back to haunt me.'" Working primarily against Philadelphia native Bryant, Iverson shot 17-of-36 from the field. He scored between nine and 12 points in every period and added a season-high 10 assists and five rebounds. "I wanted to get off to a good start," Iverson said. "Some earlier shots were going off the rim, then all of a sudden, my shots began to drop. My teammates began to get the ball to me, they did a good job as always of getting me the ball in the right spot, and I was able to make the big shots at the end." "The little kid was phenomenal," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "I had to take him out at the beginning just to calm him down because he was really wired. Yeah, he took a lot of shots, but for the most part, his selection was good." With 55 seconds left, he exited to a thunderous ovation and a chant of "Beat LA" from the First Union Center crowd that recalled the rivalry between these teams from a generation ago. O'Neal and Bryant scored 23 points each for the Lakers, who fell to 1-3 on their six-game road trip. Los Angeles has lost its last three meetings with Philadelphia, with Iverson averaging 34.3 points. The 76ers had not beaten the Lakers three straight times since the 1981-82 and 1982-83 seasons, when the teams met in consecutive NBA Finals. "This team has come a long way," Brown said. "I hope we can keep a level head, where they can expect to play well against the good teams, as well as playing well against teams with records worse than theirs." Lakers forward Dennis Rodman missed his fourth straight game due to an excused absence for personal reasons. With the mercurial Rodman in the lineup, Los Angeles is 9-0. Without him, it is just 8-9. "We'll welcome him with open arms when he comes back," Lakers coach Kurt Rambis said. "But I have no idea when he's coming back." "He's obviously a factor," O'Neal said. "He has personal problems, whatever that means, nobody really knows. I don't think about it. I know the organization will do what they have to do." O'Neal was saddled by foul trouble, eventually fouling out with just four rebounds midway through the final period. He also missed 5-of-12 free throws and committed five turnovers. Iverson thoroughly outplayed O'Neal and Bryant in the third quarter, when the Sixers took control. After a 3-pointer by Glen Rice -- his first basket of the game -- gave the Lakers a 56-54 lead, Iverson made a jumper and 3-pointer and set up two baskets during a 12-2 burst that gave Philadelphia a 66-58 lead with 5:50 remaining. Iverson buried a 22-footer to trigger a 6-0 spurt. Tyrone Hill and Aaron Mckie made free throws before Iverson fed Theo Ratliff for a dunk and a 74-62 bulge with 2:02 left in the period. "For the most part, we did what we wanted to do," Lakers coach Kurt Rambis said. "We forced him (Iverson) to take a lot of outside shots. Unfortunately for us, he made a lot of them." "Coach Brown noticed that we didn't defend the pick-and-roll very well, so he let Allen run the pick-and-roll and they did a very good job of setting screens and getting him open," Bryant said. O'Neal and Bryant combined for no baskets in the third quarter as the Lakers shot just 17 percent (3-of-18). Iverson scored 11 in the period, which ended with Philadelphia holding a 76-67 lead. Iverson had a jumper and 3-pointer early in the fourth quarter before a 3-pointer by Rice and a dunk by Robert Horry pulled Los Angeles within 83-77 with 9:44 to go. Iverson made a pair of free throws and a technical foul shot on O'Neal. Matt Geiger hit a jumper and two free throws off O'Neal's fifth foul as the Sixers rebuilt the lead to 90-77 with 6:33 left.

NBA Greatest Duels: Allen Iverson vs Dwyane Wade (2004) *AI game winning shot

The Philadelphia 76ers watched their second-half lead shrink from 19 points to one, and they endured five changes of possession in the final 20 seconds. Somehow they hung on, surviving their second frantic finish in as many nights to beat the Miami Heat 93-90 Friday. "We had them on the ropes, but we couldn't knock them out," said Allen Iverson, who scored 35 points. Miami missed three 3-pointers down the stretch that would have tied the score, including an uncontested 24-footer by Lamar Odom with two seconds to go. "We played with guts, heart and determination," Odom said. "But you can't get down 19 points against Philadelphia." Iverson, who scored the game's final points on a basket with 21 seconds left, had a strange shooting night. He went 5-for-9 from 3-point range, 2-for-14 on two-point shots and 16-for-17 at the free-throw line. "I couldn't hit anything inside the arc," Iverson said. "But fortunately I was able to get to the line and have a big night." The NBA scoring leader is averaging 38.8 points in his past four games. The 76ers, who defeated Chicago 83-82 on Thursday, lead the Atlantic Division at 11-10 even though they've been hampered by injuries. Philadelphia snapped a three-game road losing streak and beat the Heat for the sixth time in a row. "The fact that we're above .500 and leading our division says a lot," guard Eric Snow said. "We've been through a lot, been through the tough times, and we've survived." They barely withstood a comeback by the Heat, who fell behind 73-54 with three minutes left in the third period before rallying. Eddie Jones missed a 3-pointer that would have tied the game with 2:50 left, and another with 43 seconds to go. Miami's Brian Grant rebounded the second miss and scored to cut the 76ers' lead to 91-90. Iverson's 18-footer made it 93-90. Then came a furious sequence. Odom missed a running scoop shot, and Snow missed a breakaway layup. Grant grabbed the rebound and threw the ball out of bounds with five seconds left, but a bad pass by Philadelphia's Aaron McKie gave the ball back to Miami. Odom then missed from the top of the arc, and the 76ers' John Salmons rebounded with one second left to clinch the victory. "You can't let the comeback obscure the things we did wrong the first 30 minutes," Miami coach Stan Van Gundy said. "The first half was obviously the worst we've played all year." Dwyane Wade scored 21 points for Miami. Jones, who missed his first 10 shots and finished 7-for-22, scored 20. Odom went 5-for-17 and scored 19. Philadelphia's Derrick Coleman, who has missed nine games with a strained knee, played the entire fourth quarter and finished with 12 points and seven rebounds. "I could have surgery," Coleman said. "But that would put me out for a year, and I'm already 36 years old. I don't want to do that. The pain is not that bad, although the back-to-back games are tough." The 76ers have won 13 of their past 15 games against Miami, including two victories this season. They've won five straight at Miami. The Heat had won four home games in a row. Game notes Miami's Caron Butler, who has struggled in limited duty since undergoing knee surgery Oct. 4, didn't dress. Butler might be ready to return to the starting lineup next week, Van Gundy said. ... Iverson's 35 points were the most against the Heat this season. ... The 76ers improved to 6-0 when leading at halftime. ... Iverson had a steal in the fourth quarter to extend his streak to 44 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the NBA. ... Miami center Loren Woods made his first start since Nov. 16, 2002, replacing Udonis Haslem. Woods missed his first six free-throw attempts. ... The Heat fell to 1-11 when their opponent shoots more free throws.

Allen Iverson 42pts vs A.Walker P.Pierce Celtics 01/02 NBA Playoff Game 3 *Must watch !!!

Allen Iverson 42pts vs A.Walker P.Pierce Celtics 01/02 NBA Playoff Game 3 *Must watch !!!

Allen Iverson refused to let the Philadelphia 76ers' season end. Iverson scored 13 of his 42 points in the fourth quarter as the defending Eastern Conference champions avoided elimination with a tense 108-103 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of their first-round series. The Sixers avoided a best-of-five series sweep for the first time since 1991 against Milwaukee. They host Game 4 on Wednesday. Responding in pressure situations is nothing new for Iverson. "That's my life," Iverson said. "That's just what I've been going through since I've been in the league, so I'm kind of used to it. When we lose, people are going to point the finger at me and coach. And when we win gaems, I get the praise. You just accept that and understand that's the way it's going to be." It was the eighth time Iverson scored at least 40 points in a playoff game. The Sixers are 7-1 in those contests. "We have another chance to play and we have to put pressure on them, where they feel it," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "It doesn't look to me like they're feeling it. They're playing with a lot of poise and have a lot to be proud of." Philadelphia also got a big game from Eric Snow, who scored 23 points. After going a combined 4-of-25 in the first two games of the series, he made 9-of-14 shots in Game 3 and scored six straight points for the Sixers during one stretch in the fourth quarter. "There was no pressure on them at all," Snow said. "All of the pressure was on us. Fortunately, we were able to pull this game out and now we have to take care of our home and win on Wednesday and even the series." The Celtics, looking to move into the second round for the first time since 1992, were in position to close out the Sixers, taking a 103-100 lead on Rodney Rogers' 3-pointer with 1:32 remaining. But the Sixers scored the final eight points. "It's a game we should have had," Boston forward Paul Pierce said. "We're up three with under three minutes to go. We gave ourselves a chance to win after being down in the first half. It's definitely one we should have had." All season, the Celtics lived by the 3-pointer. On this day, however, they died by it. Derrick Coleman, who played a strong game with 18 points and nine rebounds, followed Aaron McKie's miss to give Philadelphia a 104-103 lead with 45 seconds left. Pierce scored 29 points for the Celtics, but missed a 3-pointer from the top of the key on the ensuing possession. Boston was forced to foul, and Iverson hit two more from the line, making it 106-103 with 19 seconds to play. "I felt that everybody would come out and play the game like it was their last," Iverson said. "But we didn't have a choice. If you can't get up for a game like this, there's something wrong. You're not a basketball player, you're not a competitor." Rogers and Pierce missed 3-pointers on Boston's last possession, and Coleman clinched the win with two from the line with 1.1 seconds to go. "It's now Game 4," Pierce said. "We expected a war. We didn't expect Philly to bow down to us in Game 3. We expect another war for the next game." Antoine Walker scored 27 points for Boston but was shut out from 3-point range in the second half after making all seven of his attempts from behind the arc in the opening 24 minutes. He finished 7-of-13 from downtown. "We feel like we're still very confident we can beat them here," Walker said. "Obviously, they're going to feel really good and come out with a lot of energy on Wednesday. We have to be prepared and ready to match their energy again." While the Sixers never have rallied to win a best-of-five series after losing the first two games, they have renewed hopes since Iverson seems to have shaken off the rust after missing the final 14 games of the regular season with a broken hand. The NBA scoring champion rebounded from a shaky outing in Game 2, when he made just 10-of-29 shots. He took over Sunday's contest down the stretch, scoring 11 of the Sixers' final 15 points, and was deadly from the line, making 19-of-20 free throws. "We had big games from a lot of people," Iverson said. "To beat a team like that, you're going to have to have a lot of guys contribute." Overall, Philadelphia was 36-of-44 from the line, compared to just 16-of-18 for Boston, which ran most of its offense from the perimeter. The Sixers shot 45 percent (33-of-74). "We didn't get the calls," Boston guard Kenny Anderson said. "We can't cry about it, but we didn't get the calls." Spurred on by a fired-up crowd at the First Union Center, the Sixers opened an 11-point lead in the first quarter. Boston withstood Philadelphia's early burst and Walker's shooting helped it close to 58-52 at intermission. The Celtics tried to bury the Sixers with a long-range assault, making 15 of 30 3-pointers, a playoff record for a Philadelphia opponent.

Allen Iverson 2001 Allstar Game MVP 25pts 5 assists 5 steals

Allen Iverson 2001 Allstar Game MVP 25pts 5 assists 5 steals

This may be the moment we look back on as the exact time and place where Allen Iverson finally got it. The mercurial superstar of the Philadelphia 76ers had just been named Most Valuable Player of the 50th NBA All-Star Game. He had just led the Eastern Conference to the greatest comeback in All-Star annals and was physically spent. Iverson was just miles from his hometown, minutes from his alma mater and in front of dozens of friends and family. There were a million emotions tugging at a very emotional man. Oh, yeah, did we mention that Iverson was standing right next to NBA commissioner David Stern? Iverson has been called on to Stern's carpet several times, including twice this season. David's not exactly one of Allen's homeboys. And when Stern offered a nice little pun about Iverson's rap music, it was as if Iverson didn't even hear him. As Stern handed him the MVP trophy, all Iverson could think of was one thing when he was asked to speak. "Where's my coach at?" he asked. "Where's Coach Brown?" It was a nice touch by Iverson to seek out Larry Brown, his coach for the past 3 1/2 seasons. For a player often described as selfish and immature, it was a giant step toward superstardom. "It's special, and it's a tribute to my coach and my teammates," said Iverson. "I've always felt that whether these guys know it or not, kids watch them and want to be like them and today was the greatest thing for basketball," Brown said. "There were so many lessons to be learned, from him in what he's accomplished." It was a moment about a million miles removed from Iverson's rookie year, when Charles Barkley called him "Me-myself-and-Iverson." It has been a long and bumpy road for Brown and Iverson. When Brown took over the 76ers in 1997, he was inheriting the NBA's problem child, a trigger-happy gunner with no respect for authority. There have been countless clashes. Over shot selection, which Iverson still is learning. Over defense, which Iverson once considered an afterthought. Over playing time, which Iverson wants at all times. Over practices, which Iverson long considered optional. This summer, the 76ers considered exiling Iverson to the Los Angeles Clippers. Maybe that was the moment. Iverson promised to improve his attendance at practice and be more understanding of Brown. He even asked for the captaincy to show his commitment. Yeah, sure, Allen. We'll believe it when we see it. But a funny thing happened this season. Iverson came to practice all the time. His shot selection and decision-making improved. He dug in on defense harder than ever before. And the Sixers started winning. A lot. They won their first 10 games and have never really slowed down, despite a series of debilitating injuries. As they enter the stretch run, their 37-13 record is in the best in the NBA. "I think you see in him, like you do in a lot of players, as they mature in the league off the floor, they mature on the floor," said Sacramento Kings coach Rick Adelman, who watched Iverson dismantle his Western Conference All-Stars in the fourth quarter. "They understand what it is all about. Allen seems to have done that." No one ever has doubted Iverson's skills or his competitiveness or his toughness. It is what has stamped his game with superstar quality. But there is more to being a superstar than playing at a level where your skill and desire are unmatched by anyone on the court. It also is determined by how you carry yourself off the court. Iverson has no plans to unbraid his cornrows, surgically remove his tattoos or give up his secondary dream of being a rap star. But he does seem as if he finally is committed to accepting all of the responsibilities of being a true superstar -- something the NBA desperately needs. "It's going to be beautiful for years to come," Iverson said of his moment. Perhaps Iverson finally does get it, even if we don't quite get him.
