Iverson isn’t known for many public appearances but remains a huge fan of the league.
In fact, he is sending positive vibes and high praise to some of the best up-and-coming players currently dominating the league.

Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics spoke about this.
He tweeted “A.I. tell me he love my game every tie I see him….that mean everything coming from him.”
Receiving such a compliment from someone like Iverson must be huge for a player like Tatum.
It also shows just how special Tatum is and how tuned into the NBA Iverson still is.
A.I. Ain’t Wrong
Iverson’s praise of Tatum isn’t only kind, it’s absolutely spot-on too.
Tatum has quickly become one of the best names in the game and one of the most important players in the entire league.
The star small forward is on fire this year yet again, averaging 25.7 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 4.2 assists a game.
Partly because of Tatum, the Celtics have come alive and are currently sixth in the East with a record of 34-26.
Iverson is obviously paying attention to the league and specifically the young players who are carrying it forward into the future.
His comments about Tatum will only give the player more determination to try harder and achieve more.
That’s what happens when your hero compliments your game and the way you play.
Before he became an NBA legend and hero to the city of Philadelphia, Iverson was a big fan of the NBA.
Apparently, he still is.
