Yesterday, we told you that Allen Iverson was going to be in attendance at Game 6 of the Sixers/Celtics series in Philadelphia last night. And, he did more than just show up. He delivered the game ball just minutes before the contest tipped off and got a standing ovation from the crowd at the Wells Fargo Center. He also agreed to speak with ESPN's Lisa Salters midway through the second quarter of the game and told her that he still really wants to play basketball.

"I want to play basketball so bad," he said. "I want to have another opportunity to play."

Check out the rest of the interview to hear his thoughts on Kevin Garnett's comments about the "fair-weather fans" in Philly and what it meant for him to be back on the court in the City of Brotherly Love. Hopefully this won't be the last we hear of AI making an appearance at an NBA arena.
