Shatter The Backboard:
When people talk about great scorers what names do you hear? Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Wilt Chamberlain. Yes, I know that list can be debated but the name you don’t hear come up that much anymore is Allen Iverson. Allen Iverson was a born scorer, playing for Georgetown averaged over 22 points a game. Iverson was the NBA scoring champion four different times. He averaged over 30 points a game for five different seasons. For those of you who think this guy is just a ball hog and he just takes a lot of shots and doesn’t get anyone involved that’s not quite the case. The years he averaged 30 plus points he also averaged eight assists a game too. All those stats, can be compared to Kobe Bryant, the man who is supposed to be the next Jordan. If Iverson was so good in scoring, how come he doesn’t have the same amount of rings that Jordan or Bryant has? Iverson, never had the type of teams that Kobe and Jordan had.

Full disclosure: I love and miss Allen Iverson; I grew up on AI taking dudes to school.

Unfortunately, neither one of those aforementioned problems are going to change, so I will have to settle for getting...
Sixers point guard Jrue HolidayThe new look Sixers start the 2012-13 season with their biggest off-season acquisition on the bench. Andrew Bynum who for now will be limited for the next three weeks is a huge piece that the Sixers must have healthy and “the fans” need to be patient. Precaution, was the word used in regard to Bynum being shelved, so don’t expect much from Bynum...
Andrew Bynum is out for three weeks to rest his knees, but that didn’t step the center from showcasing his three-point stroke — or non-stroke — before the scrimmage the Philadelphia 76ers put on Saturday evening. Andrew Bynum is certainly about that YOLO life.The post Andrew Bynum Works on His Three-Point Stroke appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
We love Allen Iverson, so any negative news about him is delivered with full resentment. But the rumor is that dude is out of shape, bad.
A source close to AI claims that Iverson’s body would be unable to sustain intense levels of competition, thus preventing him to play for the CBA. The source continues to say that Allen has had little to no training regiment during his time...
We understand that this is a very small sample size to be working with, but we love seeing flashes of the Georgetown Allen Iverson. A.I. broke a pair of ankles on a Chinese defender during an exhibition game in China recently, and it was glorious. Good to see that he has still got it.

The 76ers want to give Andrew Bynum room to operate with as few double teams as possible.
Well it’s not quite a come back. Okay, it’s not a comeback at all. But we will get to see Allen Iverson play against NBA teams this month. Iverson has reportedly signed with Israeli team Maccabi Haifa and will play for the team against the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves in 2 exhibition games.
Can you tell it doesn’t take much for me to follow up on Allen Iverson...

Last season Evan Turner could be noted as the teams best re-bounder; Doug Collins even suggested that Turner could have been the best defensive rebounding guard in the NBA, which was personified by the 7.5 rebounds per game Turner snatched during the playoffs.
But Turner’s strength is when he has the ball in his hands and with Bynum expected to receive so much attention from defenses...
