He was singled out as the man to get for close to 100 games that year. Teams didn't even respect the second option.
SF: George Lynch? (can't remember)
PF: Tyrone Hill (lol)
C: Mohammed (Mutombo after the trade)
with McKey and Geiger as best bench players.
All help was punishingly offensively challenged. Any player that was so severly isolated offensively all year long, deserves respect. He took hit after hit after hit and came back up just as determined. He couldn't look to the next guy. Yall keep acting like carrying a team is easy. Its one of the hardest things to do in the sport.
Very well said
Iverson is one of my very favorite players, AI was a true warrior and had the heart of a lion, That's easily more than I can say for like what 95% of the damn league
