Allen Iverson want a job with the Sixers
Whenever Allen Iverson shows up at a Sixers game, it’s always an event. The crowd goes crazy at the mere mention of his name and a standing ovation almost always follows. The former NBA icon has been making a habit of showing up at games this season and now we may know why.
At Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Pistons, Iverson stopped by the broadcast booth to talk with Marc Zumoff and Malik Rose for a few minutes about a variety of topics. He discussed his life away from basketball, Nerlens Noel and the fact that Iverson would love to be working for the Sixers in their front office.
He told Zumoff and Rose:
“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.”
Personally, I would think hiring Iverson in some capacity would be a no-brainer. The fans adore him, he would make a great goodwill ambassador for the team and he is one of the best players to ever wear a Sixers uniform.
Watch the full interview and send Josh Harris an email telling him to hire Allen Iverson.
Glenn Robinson III has skills
Two weeks ago we shared with you the Vine of Joel Embiid‘s under the leg jam while the Sixers were warming up before their game against the Utah Jazz. While it may or may not have been true that it was the cause of Embiid dealing with soreness in his surgically repaired foot for the next few days, it didn’t stop fans from watching it and thinking what could be someday.
Now Glenn Robinson III has gotten in on the act, showing everyone that he has some moves of his own.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what this kid can do once he starts playing.
Again demonstrating that the Philadelphia 76ers are a class organization, the team hosted the Fraternal Order of Police before their game against the Detroit Pistons last Wednesday, including the family of fallen police officer Robert Wilson III. Wilson’s 10-year-old Quamier had the opportunity to meet the players, tour the locker room and was invited by Noel to join the team for the pre-game shootaround.

This is the second time the 76ers have honored Wilson, who was killed when he walked into an attempted robbery at a North Philadelphia GameStop store. Earlier this month the Sixers wore Officer Wilson t-shirts during warmups to honor his memory.
Finally, the 76ers recently celebrated 20 years of the Sixers Dancers and for the occasion, the team assembled as many former and current members as they could under one roof. An so I give you a special Sixers Dancers picture to commemorate the special event.
See you next Sunday.
