Love him or hate him it would be hard to argue anyone ever played the game harder. Being from Philly my friends and I relive that interview often. I remember it like it was yesterday.
Pound for pound, AI might be the greatest offensive force in modern NBA history.
But he didn't play nearly at that activity level on the defensive end. Way too many attempts to cherry pick the passing lanes, and not nearly enough effort (and physical mass) to defend his man, fight thru screens, etc.
