NBA legend Allen Iverson reacted to the passing of the Hall of Famer coach John Thompson. The former number one pick spent 1994–1996 seasons playing for Georgetown coached by Thompson.

“Thanks For Saving My Life Coach. I’m going to miss you, but I’m sure that you are looking down on us with a big smile. I would give anything just for one more phone call from you only to hear you say, “Hey MF”, then we would talk about everything except basketball…,” AI tweeted.

“May you always Rest in Paradise, where there is no pain or suffering. I will always see your face in my mind, hoping that I made you proud. “Your Prodigal Son”. #Hoya4Life”
