The reason? AI has opened up his schedule to make an appearance in front of thousands of Sixers fans as they face the Charlotte Bobcats on Allen Iverson Bobblehead Night. The Sixers management will also be putting together a video tribute in honor of Allen Iverson.Entertaining on and off the court through out his tenure as a member of the Sixers, his presence alone is the only reason I am even considering attending Saturday night's game. We all have our favorite players, our personal iconic figures in regards to our favorite teams and anytime we can show them a little bit of appreciation is good enough for me to buy a ticket.He may have never won a championship, but AI left it all on the court and was one of the most exciting players that has ever donned the white and red jersey. (And black and blue.)With a team in dire straights and currently nearing the concrete on it's downward spiral, something positive had to come our way as fans, even if it is only an appearance by a legend of our city's sports!The 2013 Sixers have not given us too many highlights, so here is a look at some of the greatest moments Allen Iverson left on the court!
