Default Allen Iverson has arthritis in left knee

Maybe already old news. Sorry, been busy lately with all the Xmas fanfare.

Anyway:

Quote:
Allen Iverson is 34 years old.

While he doesn’t think that’s too old to still be a factor, he admits he really felt his age when an MRI last week showed that he has arthritis in his left knee. The injury forced him to miss the 7-20 Sixers’ last two games, including Friday’s victory in Boston, and will keep him out tonight in Washington and Saturday in Utah. He’s expected to return next Monday in Portland.

(...)

Iverson said the reason he got arthritis in the knee, which had to be drained three times in a five-day span, was because he overcompensated for his sore right shin.

Default Re: Allen Iverson has arthritis in left knee

I remember probably 2 years ago when he was in Denver and among the top scorers and assist guys in the league, the question was asked when will his age finally catch up with him. Someone's reply said that he's gonna maintain a high level for another year or two and then he's gonna fall fard. So far, despite the occasional burst here or there, it's been true.
