Re: Sixers appear ready to bring back Allen Iverson
Very happy about this. Mark my words, Iverson still has a lot left in the tank. He's the perfect fit for this philly team, they basically have nothing to lose either as they looked terrible. I think AI will be good for Jordan's system too

Numerous team sources confirmed on Friday that the 76ers' brass has already talked — and talks will only escalate this weekend — about bringing Iverson back to Philadelphia. Possibly as early as next week.
Stephen A. Smith of FOX Sports Radio.
"It's being seriously considered," one Sixers official said before his team lost to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night. "We know the history. We know the ups and downs. But we're also aware of what (Iverson) can do and that he's needed here. We simply can't just ignore the upside he'd bring. Not with our situation."
As of Friday night, coach Eddie Jordan was on board with bringing Iverson back, according to sources. So were officials within the club's hierarchy, along with the team's executive adviser, Sonny Hill.
