Allen Iverson is having the time of his life.
Just over three months away from his formal induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the former NBA MVP and 11-time All-Star was holding court Thursday night in Philadelphia, looking every bit still like the king of Philly — even six years after he retired as a Sixer.
But when asked by ESPN about another king, King James, and the Cleveland Cavaliers coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the NBA Finals, A.I. broke into an all-out impersonation of the LeBron James viral kid sensation.
Ha! Gotta love it.
Did The Answer nail the impersonation?
Of course, he was imitating this kid, who amassed over 65 million Vine loops (and counting).
All jokes aside, A.I. also took the time out to offer Ben Simmons, who was selected by the Sixers as the top overall pick in the draft, some advice.
It's only right, considering A.I. was the last No. 1 pick that Philly had, in 1996, before Thursday nigh,t and that Simmons used to idolize The Answer growing up in Australia.
Seems like Simmons will always have A.I. to turn to as well.
By the way, for those Iverson fans wondering, A.I. remains every bit of the trendsetter that he was when he was crossing over cats with his cornrows and baggy shorts during his prime.
