Land's book focuses on the heart of Iverson's career, when in Philadelphia, Iverson had a terrific run, getting drafted No. 1 overall by the Philadelphia 76ers and going on to achieve numerous accomplishments, which included Rookie of the Year, 11 all-star selections, an Olympic Bronze, a Finals appearance, 4 scoring titles, 3 steals titles, and an MVP award.
Land also takes us off the court, with candid shots of him and his son, and stirring photographs of private moments of reflection and renewal. Land had unprecedented, exclusive access Allen's inner circle. His never-before-seen images reflect a side of the star hoopster that few knew existed.
Some of his photos captured Iverson in a way not yet seen. One shows him with a forearm cast. Another at his surprise 30th birthday party. Another was of him sitting contemplatively in the locker room. But the image he's most proud of is one he didn't snap. It was of him going one-on-one with Iverson on a practice court. It looks like he dribbles past Iverson.
"During my time with AI I got to see sides of Allen that very few people ever get to see," says Land "My hope is this commemoration of a supremely talented individual will allow others to see something they haven't seen before."
