Allen Iverson talks to Shannon Sharpe about the importance of betting on yourself in sports and anything in life. ‘You behind the 8-ball anytime you don’t believe in yourself. My mentor used to teach me, if it’s you and me, it’s me. That’s not cocky or arrogance, that’s just you believing in and respecting the talent God gave you. When I stepped on the court, I felt like in my heart I was the best player on the floor, and a million people would say otherwise. Once you don’t have the confidence, the battle is already lost.’
Allen Iverson joined Club Club Shay and told Shannon Sharpe that he thought his teams with the Philadelphia 76ers were superteams. ‘I thought we were a superteam. That’s how much confidence I had in myself.’

Allen Iverson says his 1996 Draft Class, when he was the No. 1 pick, was better than Jordan and LeBron’s Draft classes. Iverson’s class included Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Ray Allen and Stephon Marbury.
Al Harrington joined Shannon Sharpe on Club Shay Shay and said Americans would be surprised to find out that most of the top athletes smoke marijuana. ‘I personally think 80% of NBA players use cannabis in some shape or form.’
