Allen Iverson's Emotional Return to Philly Sparks 76ers to Force Game Seven

Allen Iverson, clad in a Lou Williams 76ers jersey, gave one of his trademark interviews to ESPN’s Lisa Salters Wednesday night during game six of Philly-Boston: “I’m not using that word [retire]. I want to play basketball so bad … the way it is right now, I’ve accepted the fact [the NBA] might not happen … I just love to play and I want to have another opportunity to play on the professional level.” There’s something about the realness and candor in his voice … man, I miss that guy.

The game? Andrew Toney, Bobby Jones and Dr. J were just too much for Dennis Johnson, Kevin McHale and Robert Parrish, and the 76ers won, 82-75. Game seven, which will be won by Boston, will be Saturday. This happened:
