Manager: Allen Iverson Not Playing in Team Philly vs Team Melo Game

by September 22, 2011

According to his manager Gary Moore, despite rumors hinting otherwise, The Answer will not suit up in the big game this Sunday. Reports CSN Philly: “After hearing there was a possibility that Allen Iverson might be a participant in Sunday’s ‘Battle of I-95’ at the Palestra, I had two thoughts: logically he could play for either team given his Newport News upbringing and Georgetown attendance for college (Team Melo candidate) or because of his accolades as a Philadelphia favorite son over his 10-plus seasons as a Sixer (Team Philly candidate). The second thought is he really going to play? The answer to that thought is no. Gary Moore, Iverson’s longtime friend and manager, confirmed that the now 36-year-old Answer will not participate.”
