CLASS ACT IVERSON
Monday's Game 4, the season finale.
Nuggets guard Allen Iverson emerged from the locker room with several trash bags filled with shoes he had worn during the season. His personal manager, Gary Moore, said there were 20 pairs.
Iverson went to the Pepsi Center loading dock, where 50 or so fans were waiting on Denver players to sign autographs. Iverson took shoes out of the bags one by one, signing each. Each time he signed one, he passed the shoe onto a fan.
He didn't do it because the media was there. I just happened to walk by and see the event unfold.
It was a class gesture, one even more impressive considering it came immediately after the Nuggets had suffered a devastating sweep at the hands of the Lakers
