Iverson will start, Air Bud to come off the bench

Let the circus begin...

Allen Iverson (who is now known as ‘The Question,’ not ‘The Answer’) will start for the 76ers against his former team, the Denver Nuggets on Monday night.

If this doesn’t reek of a quick cash grab by the 76ers then I’m not sure what does. Nothing quite like taking advantage of a blindly loyal, pro-Iverson fan base to fill the 40% empty Wachovia Center all while imploding your teams chance of current or future success. Dear Philly: You are not getting 2001 Allen Iverson. That is all.

(Assuming he is still alive it would be impossible for Air Bud to come off the bench. He would be 98 years old in dog years and surely has some hip problems, a trait of the breed. Nowhere near the Golden Retriever with mad dog hops and a smooth jumping nose shot that dominated the Washington state grade school circuit in 1997.)

Air Bud finished this game game with 43 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists and 1 piddle puddle near halfcourt.

    “All while imploding your teams chance of current or future success” —->Pure comedy. You act as if they were making great strides towards the playoffs and Iverson was just added as a hype man to pump up the crowd. Pha Leeze. 76’ers fell off when Iverson left. But they were only hanging on with him there. The front office was so focused on trying to control his behavior that they FORGOT to build a team around him. If Iverson works this year, brings in some cash, retires, thats a good story. If they can all put their egos aside, build a team for next year and win a championship, it’s a fairytail true. <—-sotp tryin 2 rain on our parade.

    ps…that pic of Iverson on the ground<——-I did not find that hilarious. Humph!

    You’re right. I should have went with a pic of him bawling at the press conference.

    If somehow (magically) Ivo is able to blend and help Iggy it would be a good combo. Can AI really step aside and admit to himself that Iggy is option #1 and he is option #2? My money is on no.

    Thanks for your comment! Bring em’ on!
