I wish they would stop comparing basketball careers... especially when they played in 2 diff eras. Let's compare Stephen A. to Howard Cosell? Who will go down to be the best sports commentator ever? Right!! My point exactly... 🤦🏾‍♂️

Honestly if Jokic wanted to, he prob could avg a triple double for a season. He's only one and half assist short of that right now and he can do it while shooting 57% from the field. Not 40%.

Why do people also forget that Iverson started the whole 30points 10assist culture that Lebron, Harden, Westbrook took to new heights. Before Iverson's 2004/05 season, no one was dropping regular 30p/10a games for the majority of a season.

No bro. Just no. I will acknowledge it's not a completely ridiculous debate or topic, as they have each had tremendous success in their respective careers. But AI never played with anyone even a fraction as good as KD, Harden (twice) or even Bradley Beal. And still took a team to the finals with the second best player on his team being....I don't even know who. Who was the next best guy he ever had? A young Igoudala?

The league might be softer now, but it has never been more skilled than it is right now. A lot of the players from the 70's, 80's, and 90's couldn't play in this league at all. Fouling isn't basketball, it's what you do when you can't actually defend a guy with real defense.

Iverson made himself better, Westbrook makes everyone else better. Also the fact that Iverson carried a bunch of scrubs to the finals says a lot about how pathetic the East was. He had an all time great start to his career, but his prime was too short and after that finals appearance he was never relevant in the MVP or championship discussion again. Westbrook all day. Don't make me remind you of how bad he was in Detroit, or how he made the Nuggets worse when he got there.
