Allen Iverson is in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, but he doesn’t even think it was his best sport.

The 11-time NBA All-Star told Shannon Sharpe on Club Shay Shay that he would have been a legend if he stayed with football.

“Not being cocky, not being arrogant, I think—no I know—that I would have been a better player in football than I was in basketball,” Iverson said.

Iverson said that football was his “first love,” joking that he probably would have actually lifted weights if he stuck with the sport.

The Virginia native was a two-sport star growing up, leading Bethel High School to a state football championship while being named the Associated Press Player of the Year in both football and basketball.

Sacramento Kings rookie point guard Davion Mitchell powered his Baylor Bears to an NCAA Championship this past spring with his electric speed and his tenacity on defense. His first professional season hasn’t even officially gotten underway and it’s abundantly clear that he’ll be bringing those traits to the NBA.

Mitchell showed off his plethora of skills on Monday night in Las Vegas as his Kings took on the Charlotte Hornets in Summer League. The 22-year-old got the start for Sacramento at point guard and he didn’t disappoint.

The Kings No. 9 overall pick scored just 10 points but dished out nine assists without a single turnover. He posted a +16 in just 28 minutes and led his team to a comfortable 80-70 win.

However, it was Mitchell’s defense that stole the show on Monday night. On multiple occasions, he

The New York Knicks entered free agency knowing they needed another point guard. On Wednesday morning, it was announced that Kemba Walker is heading to Madison Square Garden for the 2021-22 season.
