Allen Iverson’s Return to Philly Joyous, Sorry Sixers Still Lose

- By Bossip Staff

Allen “The Answer” Iverson played in his first game as a ‘reborn Sixer’ last night in Philadelphia:

A full house, video tribute and enough No. 3 jerseys in the crowd to fill two or three merchandise stands. Iverson kissed the 76ers logo, danced with his teammates and bowed to his adoring fans. 20,000 fans came out to support Iverson on his first night back home. Unfortunately, the Sixers came up short as Denver Nuggets spoil Iverson’s return to Philadelphia with a 93-83 win over the 76ers on Monday night.

“I just felt like I was back home,” Iverson said. “It was deja vu. Just a real good feeling. The fans made it hard on me because they made me more nervous than I already was.”

“We hated to see him leave, but we’re glad he’s back,” said fourth-grade teacher Marc Falco, who got two tickets from a radio promotion before knowing Iverson would play. “This city respects people who work hard, and no one works harder than Allen Iverson — even at 34.”

Let’s hope after all this time, AI can get a ring, grow up, or do something…

    He’s where he belongs. They’ll get it together. Now I can go back to routing for Philly if the Wizards lose too many games.

    Just not feeling how AI did Memphis…..if you didn’t want to play for the Grizzlies then why sign the contract. It was just a distraction and made the Grizzlies look worse after that business deal.

  • DarkSknChristianDiorPostaGurl

    He’s still the sexiest thing in a Jersey hands down!!!!!!

  • hmmmm

    The Grizzles are a garbage Franchise and looked ridiculous signing Iverson just for Ticket sales…they deserved what they got.

    Anyhow, regardless of what happens im just happy Iverson is back where he belongs..he should have never left Philly.

    It shouldn’t be assumed that just because AI is back home in Philly that they are all of a sudden going to win every game or that because the 76ers didn’t win is his fault. BOTH the Pistons and the Grizzlies are 8 and 12. AI will get it together; his REAL fans are just glad that he’s back.

    NO RING YET….NOT HAPPENIN’!!! EVER!!!!!!!!!! NEVER LIKED A.I. AND I NEVER WILL!!!!

  • BLACK-A-RIFICK

    its sad the refs admitted to bad calls against him

  • AWWWWWWWWWWWSHADDAAAP!!!!!

    ’60 Minutes’ had an eye-opening report on shady referees who were calling unnecessary fouls on Allen Iverson during games and then turning their heads when fouls were made against him. All in the name of ‘teaching him a lesson.’ I expected more from these so-called professionals but here’s yet another example of white boys and their organized, racist conspiracies.
