Throwback Thursday: Allen Iverson vs Tracy Mcgrady


During this season, it’s nice to look back at the past and be able to smile for half a second. Here we have a classic duel of Allen Iverson and Tracy Mcgrady in their primes — before the injuries and other oddities derailed their careers. Iverson went off for 42 points — Mcgrady had 39 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

Watching this video reminds you of how great these two were in their prime. Obviously, the legacy of Allen Iverson speaks for itself, but Mcgrady’s was ruined by injuries. Even though he just officially retired last season, he hasn’t been a major factor in the NBA for years.

Can one ever become tired of watching highlights of Allen Iverson in a Sixers uniform? I know I can’t. This one takes me back to great times. A lot better than the ones we are going through right now. Hopefully the Sixers will return to these better times sooner rather than later. Enjoy this one.
