Guess Who's Back !?
Guess who’s going to be back at practice for the 76ers ?
Iverson has beat out Michael Jordan and Brett Favre in the category of shortest retirements. A.I. was retired for about a week, and today, he has agreed to sign back with the team that drafted him #1 overall back in 1996, the Philadelphia 76ers.
“In light of the recent injury to Lou Williams, which will sideline him for close to eight weeks, we felt that Allen was the best available free agent guard to help us at this time,” 76ers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski said in a statement.
This was the destination I said he should have gone back to since the off-season. It really is the best fit for him at this time. I hope it works out and gives Iverson a chance to retire gracefully from the 76ers.
Ironically, Iverson’s first game with his new/old squad will come against the Denver Nuggets; the team that the Sixers traded Iverson to back in 2006.
