PHILADELPHIA — It may not be earth-shattering, but now its official. All-Star Sixers guard Allen Iverson will miss the rest of the 2010 season, according to sources that spoke to CSNPhilly.com.
The report is hardly shocking, considering speculation regarding Iverson’s future has been very present in the local media scene.
A little less than a month ago, Iverson left the team, citing personal reasons and missed five games with the Sixers and the All-Star Game.
He did reveal that his four-year-old daughter, Messiah, was ill, and that despite thourough testing, her ailment was unknown.
After making the announcement, Iverson returned to the Sixers, but played just three games before leaving again to be with his family in Philadelphia, while the team headed west.
Iverson played 25 games with the Sixers this season, likely capping off what should be a Hall of Fame career.
If this is in fact it for ‘The Answer’ in the NBA, he will be remembered for much more than a press conference that never ceases to amaze or a skipped practice. Iverson will be remembered for an incredible career on the Sixers’ hardwood.
