If the best pound for pound player in NBA history inquired about a coaching gig with his former team he’d surely be hired, right? Seemingly, that hasn’t been the case for “The Answer,” Allen Iverson.
“I’ve been retired 11 years, I don’t know how I’m not a part of that staff.” A conversation Iverson held with Taylor Rooks of Bleacher Report.
A.I. has a point, the greatest point guard in team history should walk into a job whenever he desires. Although he has had his fair share of controversy throughout his career, he’s done nothing to be put on a ban list.
Much more important than his accolades is his persona. If there’s one person on gods green earth who MAY be able to get through to Ben Simmons it’s A.I. Simmons has gotten over the likes of Brett Brown & Doc Rivers because they lack a backbone. A.I. would cut it to Simmons straight and hold him accountable along with any other player who refuses to put their all out on the hardwood. With the matter going public don’t be surprised if A.I. is offered a role with the Sixers in the near future. The heat is on the organization to take care of the man who carried them to the NBA Finals in 2001.
