Since Allen Iverson's second stint with the 76ers was cut short in 2010, I have had one main wish as an NBA fan; to see 'The Answer' on an NBA hardwood again.  Despite his distaste for practice and at times a brazen attitude, Allen provided too many memories for Sixer and League fans alike for his career to end the way it did.Not to mention the amount of times over the past few years since Iverson last hung his Reeboks up, that I have been watching a game and thought to myself, "This guy got a roster spot and A.I. couldn't??"  I don't want to get into naming names, but there are plenty of players who have seen some tick over the past several seasons that couldn't hold a candle to Allen (offensively), even at the NBA-elderly age of 37.The seemingly large lack of interest by the League made a comeback seem increasingly unlikely, as Iverson toiled away in Turkey, claiming he would do whatever it took to land on an NBA roster.Well, now it seems that there is a chance that my wish, and Allen's alike, could come true, as the Sixers' favorite son may have a suitor.  A report out of ESPN on Monday claims that the Texas Legends, the Mavericks D-League affiliate, are extremely interested in Iverson.  The Legends have moved up the waiver wire, and now have a clear shot at Iverson, if he is interested in the return, as he has reportedly been resistant to D-League offers.Although not quite the shining spotlight he is accustomed to, at this point, a contract with the Legends may provide Allen with the best potential outlet to get back into the League which he dominated for over a decade.  There has been no word out of Iverson's camp yet in response to the reports, but we can only hope that Iverson considers an offer that could land him on an NBA hardwood this season.
