76ers to Trade Allen Iverson

The 76ers are trading Allen Iverson.

Allen Iverson is no longer Philadelphia’s headache. Then again, maybe it’s the other way around. Either way, this much is sure: One of the great players in franchise history has likely played his last game for the 76ers. Iverson wants out and Philadelphia will grant his wish.

“It’s just time for him to go his way and for us to go our way,” Sixers chairman Ed Snider said Friday night.

During a bizarre day, Iverson was first banished by the club for two games and then Snider said the Sixers would trade their disgruntled franchise player after he asked to be dealt. It would end Iverson’s 11-year stint with the team that made him the No. 1 pick in the 1996 draft.

The A.I. era is all but over

Quite bizarre. A.I. is the T.O. of the NBA: A great player who is such an enormous pain in the ass as to not be worth it.
