Allen Iverson, who was an elite scorer during his days in the NBA, is now admiring another young bucket-getter.
Iverson, who won NBA MVP in 2001 while leading the Philadelphia 76ers to the NBA Finals, posted a picture of Morant’s Grizzlies jersey hanging on the trophy.

The Grizzlies star responded to the 11-time All-Star with a photo illustration of the two side-by-side on the court together.
At 43-20, the Grizzlies are No. 3 in the Western Conference. Morant is averaging 27.6 PPG — which ranks seventh in the league — in addition to 5.9 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game. He was named to his first NBA All-Star Game as a starter in January.
