Legendary NBA player Allen Iverson dropped in at a Tennessee spring football game and surprised the players and staff. He treated them to some words of motivation and spent some time with the players, which no doubt inspired them to all become hall of famers just as Iverson is. Head coach for the Volunteers Butch Jones commented that they were shocked to see the NBA superstar show up to the field on Saturday, April 16th, but they were thrilled to interact with someone who spent some time at the top of the sports industry.
The 2001 NBA Most Valuable Player was the first overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft and he was chosen by the Philadelphia 76ers. He was the NBA All Star MVP two times in the years 2001 and 2005, and even went to play for the United States in the 2004 Summer Olympics, bringing home a bronze medal with the team. Aside from the 76ers, he also played a few years with the Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons, Memphis Grizzlies and the Besiktas team out of Turkey for a little while.
Iverson dropped by a spring game that the University of Tennessee Volunteers were playing at, and everyone was so excited to spend some time with one of the NBA’s legendary players.
