The basketball god know as Allen Iverson is a important part of my literacy history in developing my basketball IQ. At the time I didn’t own a computer so the only way to see the NBA stats were to get a paper. Health class was my  last period and the teacher always bought a paper to read the health section. A group of us would take the sports section and read what the stats were. Form there I learned what ppg (points per game), rpg (rebounds per game) and apg (assist per game) all meant.
