    Meh. Baseball geeks/nerds/loooosers can't appreciate real athletes in real sports anyway. :) :) :)

    B.S. He'll be back in, oh, mid-April, for a team fighting for the 7th or 8th playoff spot, maybe 6th. Be funny if the 76ers were that team and they took him back.

    Really? Good riddance?

    AI was an electrifying scorer when he in his prime and for someone his size to use his body the way he did was astounding. Yeah he had some off the court issues, but he was as good as any player who ever played.

    He was a few years past his prime, but I am gonna miss watching him play.

    Don't pay attention to him. He's a Sofstra guy. What the fuck does he know? :)

    Sonner, I will fucking KILL YOU!!!!

    Never said Iverson wasn't a great player. But the schtick wore thin a long time ago. The BLOGGGGGGGGG 2mCM linked does a far better job than I ever could of explaining why it's not sad to see him go. The me-against-the-world act wears real thin in a hurry once the skills start going south.

    It's utter bull.

    Iverson's just retiring from practice. Practice, man!
