Former bad boy of basketball, Allen Iverson sat down with Complex and gave them some intimate details about his life and career in basketball. One of the stories they touched on was the urban myth that A.I. lost a game of HORSE to rapper, Nelly.
How could arguably one of the best point guards in NBA history lose in a game of HORSE to rapper Nelly? Well the former 76er said he was drunk. He told Complex:
Me and Nelly played HORSE. He’s a friend of mine. I remember one night we went to Jermaine Dupri’s studio, and I had been drinking before I got there. We went into the gym, and he beat my ass. Then he went on 106 & Park and bragged about it. So the next time we played, I made sure that I came prepared. I hadn’t drunk anything and beat his ass. And during that game, he was saying, ‘You need to get him a couple drinks.’ I told him, ‘Nah. Not today. You ain’t going to brag on this one.
Well at least A.I. redeemed himself.
