Allen Iverson has never been afraid to speak his mind, that's for sure. Earlier this week, the Hall of Famer unveiled his basketball Mount Rushmore.

During an appearance on 'All The Smoke with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson,' Iverson revealed his five favorite players of all-time.

"My favorite is always going to be Mike, you know what I mean," Iverson said. “Kobe, you know what I mean, my one and two. And LeBron, you know what I mean, so great. I got Bron at No. 3."

Iverson continued “Kobe is the closest thing to me to Mike. And then LeBron is just hands down LeBron James. He’s in a class by himself. And then, you know, Shaq and I just, ya’ll know how I feel about Steph Curry.”

It's not surprising to see Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal in Iverson's top five. They've all given so much to the game of basketball.

The most shocking name on the list has to be Steph Curry, but he certainly deserves praise. He's going to go down as the greatest shooter of all-time.

Iverson also talked about which current NBA player he'd love to play with right now. The legendary guard had a tough time choosing between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant.
