Larry Brown believes that Allen Iverson could have become the GOAT if only…

Former Philadelphia 76ers head coach Larry Brown played an undeniably important role in Allen Iverson’s career. These two heads clashed on more than a few occasions, but in the end there is no denying that Coach Brown was integral to the success AI achieved during his time with the Sixers.

Larry Brown himself is well aware of the pivotal role he played in Allen Iverson’s career. Indeed, Brown admits that he was a bit too hard on his young superstar. However, the 82-year-old former coach still believes that AI could have achieved much more if only his head was in the right place:

“I was relentless in thinking that if there was something I think you need to work on, I wasn’t going to quit. But my frustration with Allen was that I didn’t think he had done everything he needed to do to play at the level I thought he could get to.”

For his part, however, Allen Iverson remains convinced that he did everything he could:

“All I was trying to do was get the coach to understand and believe that I was trying to play the right way.” Iverson said.

At this point that Larry Brown revealed his biggest regret about his relationship with Iverson. According to the former Sixers coach, AI had a real chance to become the GOAT:

“If I had done a better job of making Allen realize how strong he was, then we could be talking about the greatest player who ever played basketball.” said Brown.
