Allen Iverson was excited to meet up with young 76ers stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons recently. He shared photos he took with each of them with amazing captions.

In his photo with Embiid, that shows the big man towering over the Hall of Famer, Iverson wrote, “The Lil Homie…LoL!”

And Iverson captioned this photo of him and Simmons, “The eyes never lie!!!” He added the following captions: “#RealKiller #Bloodthirsty #OurFuture #Sixers.”

Simmons has been a fan of Iverson for a long time. A few years ago, he shared how much the Hall of Famer meant to him as a kid, per NBC Sports Philadelphia:

“A lot of people don’t know that I actually had a poster of A.I. in my room when I was young in my room. It was a big diamond-cut poster of him with the braids. I just remember him being one of those small guys, the point guard with braids, cornrows, and the headband. I remember I had some of those cornrows when I was younger. He’s one of those players that just fought everyday.”

It must be awesome for Simmons to read and hear about the former Sixer praising him. When Iverson surprised the team at a practice early last season, he said of the young squad, again per NBC Sports Philadelphia:

“I think he’s going to be so great and I can’t wait,” Iverson said of Simmons, adding on Embiid, “I knew he was going to be great, and he’ll be greater. He’s going to only get better. He’s going to make the guys around him better as well.”
