Meek Mill Salutes His No. 1 Idol: “My Only Role Model!”

Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill has paid homage to a true Philadelphia legend. The Dreamchasers boss acknowledged former Philadelphia 76ers and NBA star Allen Iverson during his Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame induction this week.

Meek went to his Instagram page Friday (September 9) and revealed what impact The Answer had on his personal life.

Last night (September 9), Iverson shed tears and spoke on the importance of various public figures including his Georgetown college coach John Thompson.

On Friday night, Iverson was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Thompson accompanied him on stage. Shortly into his acceptance speech, an emotional Iverson paid homage to the man who gave him an opportunity when nobody else would, an opportunity that led to a Hall of Fame basketball career and, as Iverson put it, saved his life.
