Allen Iverson takes Time Off to be With Daughter
Recently, Allen Iverson spoke on the status of his team, the Philadelphia 76ers. Despite some tough losses and their horrible record, he feels that they can still make the playoffs. There are two months left in the regular season, so a run can be made. This time of year is usually Allen Iverson’s time of year, but an illness with his daughter will keep him out.
While Allen Iverson loves basketball, he loves his family more. Last night, in a game against the Bulls, he placed his career on hiatus to tend to his sick daughter. There has not been any information given about his daughter’s problems, but she is only four years old and Allen Iverson needs to be with his daughter.
Eddie Jordan, the head coach of the Sixers, said that there is a strong possibility that Allen Iverson will not return to the team. Iverson began his career in Philadelphia with the Sixers and he played most of his career here, except for three seasons. He retired, but came out after it was revealed that he would be signed by the Sixers. So far, he has enjoyed playing with the team, but he may be done.
