If any current day NBA player is cut from that incredible Allen Iverson cloth, it's Ja Morant.

The two's small-frame athleticism, along with the way they approach the game has been the subject of comparison for a little while now. So when Ja showed up to the Iverson Classic just one day removed from sending the T'Wolves home it got some reaction:

"OG," Morant tweeted at AI.

"The best thing about AI is he’s not a hater," one user commented. "He really be out here supporting the younger generation. Genuinely."

"Damn I wish my dad hugged me like Iverson," another user joked.

"Love to see this!!" replied another.

"This is why I love AI so much," tweeted another. "He always shows love to the next generation."

"I can almost guarantee he called him 'killa,'" a fan laughed.

For those who don't know, Allen Iverson can stake his claim as one of the best pound-for-pound talents the game of basketball has ever seen.

5-foot-11, 165-pounds, "The Answer" was a relentless competitor and showman that always raised his game come playoff time. Basketball isn't a game that was created for six-footers to dominate, but Iverson found a way.

The game is in good hands thanks to players like Ja Morant.
