NBA legend Allen Iverson sat down with Complex’s Speedy Morman to drop gems on everything from his relationship with The Notorious B.I.G., to his conversation the first time he met Michael Jordan, to his iconic shooting sleeve, most memorable Kobe Bryant moment, opinion on the state of the NBA and more  

Iverson shares the story of the first words MJ said to AI 

You can hear Allen talk about the iconic exchange at the 6:30 mark

This is probably because the whole league was trying to chastise rookie Iverson for publicly saying he wanted to challenge MJ. 

Everyone basically said "who are you to call out MJ?" 

Obviously, deep down he did respect MJ but he wasn't going to let MJ know and he wasn't going to play like he idolized him either.  

Pretty epic.
