Iverson trailer covers hip hop's connection with AI, NBA
The upcoming Iverson documentary on Showtime delves into Allen Iverson's connection with hip-hop, the film's latest trailer reveals.
The documentary will make its TV premiere on Saturday, although it was first shown at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.
Iverson will run through the former Philadelphia 76ers' guard's life from his rough childhood in Virginia to his always-eventful 12-year NBA career, featuring interviews with his former Georgetown coach, John Thompson, NBC journalist Tom Brokaw and more.
"Don't nobody care about what Allen Iverson does for the community," Iverson says in a clip from the trailer released Thursday. "The story is when Allen Iverson does something that they think is wrong. That's the big story. That's the story that everybody wants to read."
Iverson will air Saturday at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime.
