You can tell it's distorted because the other players look weird too.

no.

I hate to be always right but somebody on ISH has to be level headed here.

Here's a video of AI playing in that game, yes, he's always been skinny but not as skinny as those pics in the OP.

I think in that first pic he is shrugging his shoulders in a way that looks misleading...

in the vid he doesn't look that bad really...

Nobody doubts that's he is skinny.

Just not as skinny as those distorted/angle as the pics in the OP.

It's like those magazine pictures of players, they have them in angles where it makes their head look above the rim or their legs seem to be 5 feet off the ground.

Yeah I wondered that too. According to the internets he went late 2010 / early 2011.

He's skinny, obviously, he's always been. He was around 160 in his hey day. he looks 150ish here perhaps even less. You can easily tell he lost a lot of muscle mass.

Those pictures are not distorted either otherwise everyone else would look elongated as well but they don't. Look at Rafer's arms compared to AI. Rafer has always been a bit skinny as well but Rafer looks to have kept his body in shape while Iverson allowed himself to wither away. Not enough macro nutrients and lot's of physical activity will do that.

I guess that's why he's always hiding behind those baggy clothes
