Allen Iverson wants to get back into the NBA, but is not really sure how. He teetering the line between semi-retired and unemployed player, and something has to give.
One thing that is certain is the Answers love for Philadelphia. I was blessed to witness every season Allen played here and almost every game, so I’m somewhat biased.
