Allen Iverson’s one regret with Kobe Bryant

Allen Iverson, Kobe Bryant, NBA

On the latest episode of All The Smoke with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, NBA legend Allen Iverson revealed the one regret he has with the late great Kobe Bryant.

Iverson, whose Philadelphia 76ers battled Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2001 NBA Finals, told Barnes and Jackson he wishes he had a closer relationship with the Black Mamba.

Kobe Bryant tragically passed away in a helicopter crash in January. It still doesn’t seem real that the NBA icon is no longer with us.

Allen Iverson and Bryant are two of the greatest players in NBA history. Both guys are in the Hall of Fame. Bryant’s ceremony will take place in 2021. It was supposed to be this year, but COVID-19 forced the Hall of Fame committee to push it back.

Along with Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett will be inducted as well.

Bryant’s tragic passing made NBA fans realize that they need to appreciate greatness while they still can. The debates between Bryant, Michael Jordan and LeBron James will likely never stop, but hopefully, they do.

Bryant won five NBA titles with the Lakers and two Finals MVPs. Iverson, meanwhile, wasn’t able to win any rings, but he did win the 2001 MVP award. Both A.I. and Bryant will never be forgotten by NBA fans.
