Former 76ers star Allen Iverson was honored by Philadelphia fans Wednesday night with a standing ovation when he brought out the game ball before Game 6 of the Celtics-Sixers series.
Iverson, 36, spent his first 10-plus seasons in Philadelphia after being drafted first overall in the 1996 draft.
"I mean, the way it is right now, I've accepted the fact that [playing in the NBA] might not happen," he said. "But I still want to play basketball. If I can get an opportunity to where it's going to make me happy at the end of my career, I'll take that opportunity. But I just love to play and I want to have another opportunity to play on the professional level."
