Well, it was fun while it lasted. The Sixers announced today that they are cutting ties with one of the most famous players in franchise history Allen Iverson. Iverson has been taking a great deal of time off recently to tend to his ailing daughter. I guess his daughter was feeling better this weekend, though, because Iverson spent if parting with Jermaine Dupri in Charlotte.
Philly went out on a limb to bring Iverson back into fold. This is what they got for their trouble. I pretty sure we aren’t going to see other NBA teams beating down the door for AI, and this could be the last we see of the aging star in the NBA. If so, it is sad that he will be leaving on such a sour note, but Allen Iverson only has Allen Iverson to blame for this situation he has found himself in. If this is the end of the road for AI, he will have to come to the realization that it wasn’t his play, but his off the court antics that pushed him out of the league.
