"It was frowned upon when Allen Iverson was [getting tattoos.] He was compared to 2Pac. He was the thug of the league. A.I. was seen as what's bad about the league. And then [tattoos] became more popular in the following generations. Just because you look a certain way you can't put people in a box. You look at [San Francisco 49ers quarterback] Kaepernick [who has tattoos]. You can't put him in the same box as every other person who has tattoos." Tyson Chandler, Center New York Knicks
