Knee Keeps Iverson Out of Tonight’s Game

A.I. will not suit up for the Sixers in Beantown tonight due to injuries: “Allen Iverson did not make the trip to Boston with the team for tonight’s game against the Celtics, because of a troublesome left knee that was drained twice this week. The team said on its injury report he has arthritis in the knee. Iverson also suffered a bruised left shoulder in Wednesday’s loss to Cleveland.”

    Iverson’s back at philly. but he also needs to get back to his true form.. c’mon A.I,,

    His body has taken a lot of abuse over the years. Arthritis in the knee can only be treated but not really ‘cured’ so it will impact him for the rest of his career. If he wasn’t starting and getting decent time, people would say that he was just ‘making up an injury’ like he was accused of doing in Detroit. Nobody can defy age/and the kind of abuse he’s taken forever.

    I kinda think this has to do with giving him too many minutes right off the bat. he wasn’t physically ready yet.

    if one is truly comfortable with “mines”, why do they have to type no homo?

    It was only a matter of time before AI’s body started to break down, youth only lasts so long. He has to to take better care of himself or he’s done for real.

    I don’t blame him for wanting to sit this one out. Dude already has an arthritic knee & bruised shoulder. The last thing he needs is a serious case of whiplash from watching Rondo blaze past him for easy buckets.

    I’m writing a (respectful) Iverson piece for my blog comparing him to Jake Lamotta.

    Ahhh, the tough guy sitting behind the computer syndrome. Where you live, barack O, we should meet up and talk about your feelings towards blacks and jews in person.

    I think Iverson should retire. In the words of 2 Pac youre “looking like Larry Holmes flabby and sick”

  • heartlandG

    @KH I guess u didnt get what I said… “No”–>no homo ” …jus make a comment and disregard mine lil homie

  • Hangtime Hec

    For a second thought the title said, ” Iversons knee caps will keep him out of todays game.”

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    barack O: What you should be wondering is how the hell they let a sh!thead like you out of the trailer park. F*cking lowlife neo-N@zi piece of sh!t. What’s the matter? Minority took your job?
