OK it’s not nearly as bad as Michael Jordan doing his comeback thing. And clearly Brett Favre has quieted basically everyone (how you guys doing in Green Bay?). Next up is Allen Iverson.
After spending the weekend denying any serious interest in free agent Allen Iverson, the Philadelphia 76ers not only met with Iverson for two-hours yesterday in Dallas, they are close to re-signing the guard they selected #1 overall in 1996.
Marc Stein of ESPN.com is reporting that 76ers’ assistant coach Aaron McKie could leave the team in the coming days to meet and work with Iverson in Philadelphia to get him ready to play as early as next Monday versus the Nuggets [Via Hoopsworld]
I’m eager to see how Iverson fairs out this year (especially since I scooped him up in my fantasy league. Interested in other predictions? Here are five that I think will happen with sir Iverson
1. He Won’t Practice
I mean can you blame the guy. You know he doesn’t need to and any chance I can put this video somewhere I’m gonna take it.
2. He’ll Score 50 in a Game
He might take 75 shots to do it but Iverson is gonna explode in one game and it’s coming. I sure hope it’s against the Knicks at the Garden (does Philly play there? I need to check the schedule).
3. He won’t dress nice for the bus
As we’ve been saying on this site, Iverson is keeping it real.
4. He’ll Get Traded to the Grizzlies
No, actually he won’t but wouldn’t that be funny?
5. Philly Makes the Playoffs
If Brand gets his shit together and Louis Williams comes back, I think Philly squeaks by and makes it into the playoffs thus making them a nice darkhorse to get an upset in the East first round.
