Good thing no one posted that "Iverson Retirement" thread.

Allen Iverson accepts Philadelphia 76ers' contract offer

    PHILADELPHIA -- Dust off the No. 3 jersey. Allen Iverson is a Philadelphia 76er again.

    Sixers president Ed Stefanski announced the signing Wednesday on the team's Web site. Iverson is expected to make his debut Monday at home against the Denver Nuggets.

    "In light of the recent injury to Lou Williams, which will sideline him for close to eight weeks, we felt that Allen was the best available free agent guard to help us at this time," Stefanski said in a release.

    Williams, who averaged 17.4 points and 5.1 assists, broke his jaw in Philadelphia's loss to Washington on Nov. 24.

    Iverson, his agent and business manager met with Stefanski, coach Eddie Jordan and two other members of the organization Monday.

    The 34-year-old Iverson announced his retirement last week after an ill-fated stint with the Memphis Grizzlies. The 10-time All-Star was NBA MVP in 2001 when he led the Sixers to the NBA finals.

So Iverson finally gets to start, since Lou Williams is out. Wonder what happens when Williams comes back?

All hail the Hypno-Toad

"The Philadelphia 76ers have come to terms on the release of Allen Iverson. The 76ers organization wishes Iverson the best in all his future endeavors."

Wow. Unless Brown can straighten up and fly right (and I don't think Kobe's a good example for him to live up to), this is a bizarre trade by the Lakers. Good acquisition for the Wiz, though, even if they were only getting Butler.
