A four-time scoring champion, Iverson averaged a career-high 33.0 points during the 2005-06 season. The late great Kobe Bryant led the NBA in scoring that season (35.4 points).

Iverson is one of the greatest scorers in NBA history. He’s ninth all-time in points per game (26.7). The 11-time All-Star averaged over 30.0 points in a season four times. 

In 914 games with the Philadelphia 76ers, Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies, Iverson averaged 26.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 2.2 steals and 0.2 blocks. He made seven All-NBA teams. 

Iverson is 28th in NBA history in points (24,368). He won the 2001 MVP Award after averaging 31.1 points and leading the Sixers to 56 wins in the regular season. 

In five games, O’Neal, Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers beat Iverson and the Sixers in the 2001 Finals. Iverson led the series in points per game (35.6).

Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic leads the NBA this season in points per game (34.2). Iverson could score in the paint and from the mid-range and 3-point line during his prime. With the new defensive rules making scoring easier and how much space there is on offense, Iverson would likely feast. 

The 1996-97 Rookie of the Year, Iverson was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2016. He was also named one of the top 75 players of all time in 2022.
