Durant Says Allen Iverson Is “Pound For Pound The Best” In Instagram Post

Kevin Durant, Allen Iverson

It’s only natural that today’s NBA generation would idolize 2001 NBA MVP Allen Iverson. The twentysomething superstars of 2014 were still in their formative basketball years as The Answer rose to such rare heights in the late 1990s and early 2000s, surely influenced by Iverson’s flair, attitude, and, most importantly, success. Kevin Durant counts himself among that group, as the reigning MVP confirmed on Instagram yesterday by calling Iverson “pound for pound the best.” Read More »

Mixtaped: How And1 Changed The Way We Watch And Think About Basketball

It was the arrival of the And1 Mixtape Volume 1. Read More »

Woman Takes Selfie With Allen Iverson, But Admits She Doesn’t Know Him

Allen Iverson, Clueless Girl

We’re not a big fan of the selfie phenomenon, but we’re probably just old fashioned. If we saw Allen Iverson in the club, we’d probably just note we’re at a great club.

That being said, if you snap a pic with The Answer, you better know the answer if someone asks who is in the pic of you on Instagram. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Isaiah Thomas On His P&R Defense, Playing With Boogie & A Lot More

Isaiah Thomas

We freakin’ love Isaiah Thomas, and we’re not bashful about it either. The 5-9 point guard was selected with the last pick, No. 60, by the Kings in the 2011 NBA Draft, and he has met every challenge since head-on. His ability to score and lead the offense is the result of all his hard work, and it played a role in forcing Sacramento to switch Tyreke Evans to a small forward role. He also beat out a succession of point guards to retain the starting point guard spot in each of his three seasons in the NBA. We got lucky and spent a long time chatting with him by phone as he mentally prepared to face Detroit earlier this week. Read More »
