Still basking in the glow of his recent Hall of Fame induction, Allen Iverson paid a visit to “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday to talk about his career with the more-than-amicable host.
Iverson made quite the impression when he was introduced. Coming out by dribbling a basketball, Iverson then proceeded to “cross over” Colbert:

Never change Allen, never change.
