Allen Iverson Documentary To Debut At 2014 Tribeca Film Festival


Allen Iverson’s remarkable NBA career is being capped off by bringing the legend’s story to the big screen.

After the Philadelphia 76ers retired his iconic No. 3 jersey, 214 Films is unleashing a documentary on Allen Iverson, eponymously titled IVERSON. The biopic is set to debut at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival this Sunday, April 27.

Iverson is the ultimate legacy of NBA legend Allen Iverson, who rose from a childhood of crushing poverty in Hampton, Virginia, to become an 11-time NBA All-Star and universally recognized icon of his sport,” stated Tribeca Programmer, Cara Cusumano about the film. “Off the court, his audacious rejection of conservative NBA convention and unapologetic embrace of hip hop culture sent shockwaves throughout the league and influenced an entire generation. Told largely in Iverson’s own words, the film charts the career highs and lows of one of the most distinctive and accomplished figures the sport of basketball has ever seen.”

Tickets for the premiere sold out in minutes and are no longer available.

Hopefully the film gets a public release soon after the festival comes to a close. See the promotional flyer below.

    I love him! One of the greatest w/swagger to boot. It was such a joy watching him play in the NBA, his personality & talent is definitely missed. I would love to see him return to the NBA in some capacity, however that may never happen. He was not a conformist, which led to him eventually being blacklisted from the league (my opinion anyways). I wish him nothing but the best in whatever future endeavors he pursues.
