“I Would Want It To Be Luka” Allen Iverson Expresses Desire For Backcourt Partnership With Luka Doncic, Citing Deadly Potential

The NBA Most Valuable Player of 2001 and eleven times NBA All-Star, Allen Iverson has recently stated in an interview with Rachel Nichols on the programme “Headliners With Rachel Nichols” that he would love to engage in backcourt play with the Slovenian star Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks. Iverson was one of the most prominent talents of the NBA and has made an incredible name in the league.

According to Fadeaway World, he shared, “I would want it to be Luka…Because he’s a big point guard. I can still play the two. He can guard the two, I can guard the one. I think it’d be just deadly.”

Iverson had guided the Philadelphia 76ers to the 2001 NBA Finals; however, the 76ers lost to the Los Angeles Lakers, which had two top players, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal. In 2021, the talented player was also named to the NBA 75th Anniversary Team.
