Volume Saluter: A Complete List Of All The People Allen Iverson Mentioned In The Greatest Hall of Fame Speech Of All-Time

It was the type of murder that don’t need no hook.

It was all over the place yet completely on point.

It was filled with surprises but exactly what we should’ve expected.

It was well-prepared while still free-flowing.

It was stuffed with more shout-outs than shots taken in the ‘01 NBA Finals.

It was approximately nine minutes shorter than his career minutes-per-game average.

It was EVERYTHING and attempted to mention damn near EVERYBODY.

It was pure, unadulturated ALLEN IVERSON.

It was the realest shit he ever wrote.

The truest words he ever spoke.

Which means that pound-for-pound,
whether in a game or at the podium,
you're probably looking at The GOAT.

A Complete List In Chronological Order (additional AI commentary italicized):
