How else can I say it? Seeing Allen Iverson suiting up in a Sixers uniform just seems right. People may not like him but I can honestly say that the only reason I ever really started caring about the Sixers is because of Iverson.
Having him back in Philadelphia may not produce an NBA Finals contender again, but they certainly have my interest back. Seeing him take the court for practices and for the player introductions really did give me some chills at times and I could not help but smile.
Too bad the team still came up with a loss, their tenth straight.
YouTube is a great resource as somebody was kind enough to upload the following video of the Sixers warm ups and player introductions. Most of you will want to check out the second video (player introductions - up to Iverson).
Not exactly sure why Iverson wasn't announced last, at least on this night. I guess the message is clear that this really is Andre Iguodala's team?
