I want to return to the NBA this season, and help any team that wants me, in any capacity that they feel that I can help.—Allen Iverson, July 5, 2010
With that Tweet earlier this month, a wave of Terrell Owens-like speculation began about which team would be willing to take a risk on Iverson this summer.
Iverson has reportedly expressed interest in joining the evil empire down in South Beach, but ESPN's Marc Stein doesn't sound too optimistic about A.I.'s chances with Miami.
Still, as any faithful Iverson fan would dutifully point out, Iverson averaged 25 ppg only two seasons ago. He's 34 years old — not exactly a spring chicken, but not too old to play by NBA standards. (Otherwise, someone call the mortuary for Shaq!)
No matter what team Iverson plays for, his presence alone will make for some must-see matchups this season. Let's check out five of those matchups.
