      Allen Iverson has real class. He was very humble in his speech, unlike Jordan. He is definitely one of the greatest to ever play the game.

                        You could see how this guy appreciate everybody...he spent his speech by thanking people..his realness is second to none,so humble in a sense that he didn't even praise himself.and a vivid memory too coz he has no script 😊,, great speech from a great person 👏👏👏
