Allen Iverson

Inspiration to most, especially for his athletic skills

Faster than lightning, that is when speed kills

Six foot, 160 pounds, going against brick walls

But the taller they are, the harder they fall

Four time scoring champion, remembered for his toughness

Always bruised in battles, even through the roughest

2001 Finals, going against Kobe and Shaq

But none of those names matter, still goes straight to the rack

A Philadelphian legend, no one is comparable to him

With the three on his back, and that Sixer blood under his skin

But that is not why I admire him

He is different to most, he always does it his way

Never listening to the media, never going by the news

Too small to become a scorer

Too arrogant to not be a ballhog

Too dangerous for his early age crimes

But he did not care for other's word, and only believe in himself

A man that lives through his beliefs, now that is The Answer
