An Iverson-Sixers Reunion?
Hey everybody! I hope that your holidays were full of good food, love and laughter. Let’s hope the holidays were equally beneficial for Allen Iverson, because according to a well-known source in the NBA, number 3 may not be down for the count.
According to former ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith, now with Fox Sports Radio, word on the e-streets is that Allen Iverson may come out of his very recent retirement to play for the Philadelphia 76ers again.
“It’s being seriously considered,” one Sixers official said on Friday. “We know the history. We know the ups and downs. But we’re also aware of what (Iverson) can do and that he’s needed here. We simply can’t just ignore the upside he’d bring. Not with our situation.”
It seems that everyone from coach Eddie Jordan to the team’s executive adviser, Sonny Hill, are all down for Iverson to return back to the place where he won numerous scoring titles and the 2000-01 NBA MVP award.
It will cost The Sixers $3 million bucks to get Iverson, but is he worth the price? Right now they’re 5-8 and after a recent lost to the San Antonio Spurs, it seems like Iverson could be used as a potent threat against defenses looking to double team Andre Iguodala.
What do YOU think? Should Iverson go home to Philly, or should the former floor general stay retired? Speak on it in the comments section!
