Allen Iverson Reveals His Top 5 List of Rappers and NBA Players to Jadakiss

Allen Iverson is hands down, one of the best NBA players and biggest icons in sports history. It comes as no surprise that he’ll be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year alongside Yao Ming and Shaquille O’Neal. But before he is put down as one of the greats, officially, in history forever, he sat down with Jadakiss to discuss how his natural personality came through his public persona and how that changed the game. They also revisit the Reebok commercial that they made about 10 years ago, which you can watch below.

But to start off the conversation, Jadakiss gets Iverson’s top 5 dead or alive rappers and NBA players. AI gets the first four down for each list pretty handily but then struggles to fill in that fifth spot. He also names Jadakiss as his first top 5 rapper.

1. Michael Jordan
2. Shaquille O’Neal
3. Kobe Bryant
4. LeBron James
