76ers' Sunday Morning Shootaround: Welcome Home, Allen

New, comments

In this edition of the 76ers' Sunday Morning Shootaround, we revisit the MCW trade, a future Sixers' GM attends last night's Meek Mill concert, and our favorite basketball team makes it to Jeopardy!

Allen Iverson made a trip to the Wells Fargo Center last night, but it wasn't to watch a basketball game.

I'm less surprised by the facial hair than I am the fact that the Sixers actually drafted someone who was old enough to grow facial hair.

Pretty sure this is one of the reasons right here...

When you're at the frat party and no one wants to dance and your boy tells you to get the party started, so you pull out your go-to move when that new Kendrick song comes on...

But they didn't hear us, though.

ICYMI, Allen Iverson joined Marc and Malik last week to gush over Russell Westbrook, tell everyone that his son Deuce is better than he was at 17, and to make his case for a role in the Sixers' front office. And I quote:

"I would like to be even in that war room... Even if they don't go with my decision or whatever, just to have an opinion and putting out what I think and trusting the organization to do what's right."

This, of course, comes four months after Larry Brown openly campaigned for Iverson to be named the team's assistant GM. Not sure why this hasn't happened yet: I'm positive that A.I. is way more qualified to evaluate talent than those nerds they have in the front office. I know for a fact that Bubbachuck knows more about basketball than plenty of people who watch it for a living...

See what I mean?

Mere hours after pouring over Synergy numbers, Allen Iverson - dressed in camo for the 32nd consecutive day - attended the Meek Mill "Welcome Home" concert last evening. A.I.'s future co-worker Sam Hinkie had originally planned to be in the building (he's a huge fan of Beanie Sigel), but skipped the event to go watch D'Angelo Russell do this against the Arizona Wildcats.

Hate to break it to you, Alex, but that team was in jeopardy of making the playoffs LONG before that 0-17 start. As in years before. Strangely enough, that wasn't even the most embarrassing NBA-related question on that episode of Jeopardy!:

Missing you, Agent Zero.
