After the entire NBA passed on his services, we were sure we saw the last of Allen Iverson in the NBA. However, a momentous return to Philadelphia during the Sixers’ recent run in the 2012 Playoffs and Iverson’s involvement in the re-release of the Reebok Question as ‘The Answer’ back in the limelight once again. Reebok’s plan of re-introducing the Reebok Answer line begins with the Answer IV; like we attribute Michael Jordan’s shoes to his own special occasions, NBA fans of the immediate post-MJ era will liken the Answer IV to that surprising 2001 NBA Finals, when the heavily unfavored Philadelphia 76ers defeated the juggernaut Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1. Allen I poured in 48 points (with the two most emphatic ones coming over a pesky Tyronn Lue) while wearing the White/Black colorway of the Answer IV, and you can relive that moment in ‘Answer’ history by copping the IVs right now at Packer Shoes ahead of the August 10th release date. A detailed gallery with a video of Iverson’s ‘Step’ over Lue is below, so take a look and cop your Answers now!
