Prior to a 76ers game earlier this year, Allen Iverson revealed that he wants to work in the team's front office one day. Even though he has absolutely no experience when it comes to helping run an NBA team, A.I. is interested in playing a role for the Sixers in the coming years.
"I would like to be in that war room," he said at the time.
The 76ers didn't show any interest in inviting him to do anything other than wave to the crowd at homes games, though, so this week, A.I. has been making another push to let the team know that he wants a job. Earlier this week, his former coach Larry Brown actually came out and said that he hopes the Sixers give him a chance to work for them sometime in the near future. And during a uniform unveiling ceremony at Wells Fargo Center last night, A.I. himself reiterated that he'd love a job.
"I may not know everything about physical talent or anything like that," he told the Philadelphia Inquirer, "but I have a sharp mind when it comes to that look, being able to look into somebody's eyes to tell if they are going to be in the foxhole with you tonight or if they are not. To me, I am a basketball genius and I really believe that, so at any capacity I could help this franchise, that is what I am going to do, whatever they ask me to do."
So far, the Sixers haven't really asked A.I. to do anything outside of make appearances. But just in case they didn't hear him the first time, A.I. wants them to know that he's still ready to get to work. Soooo…what up, Sixers?!
