Iverson Says Fights With Larry Brown Were 99% His Fault


Showtime released it’s new documentary on Allen Iverson called “Iverson” last weekend directed by Zatella Beatty. It is Beatty’s first movie as director, and it takes a look at Iverson in a light not often seen including the role of protector and class clown.

In the documentary, which Beatty started over 10 years ago, Iverson admits that his fights with former Coach Larry Brown were 99% his fault.

“Ninety-nine percent of them were my fault,” Iverson said of the “riffs” he and Brown got into. “We clashed at times but I knew that the love was always there.”

“Highly talented, highly sensitive, highly headstrong individuals that come from two different worlds” was how former 76ers president, Pat Croce, described the pair.

Croce added that Brown never wanted to be “the bad guy,” and he was the one who had to suspend Iverson for missing practice.

“Iverson” premiered Saturday, May 16 at 9 p.m. on Showtime and will be airing throughout the month. It is also available on Showtime On Demand and on mobile via Showtime Anytime.
