A few weeks ago, Allen Iverson came out and said that he is still very much interested in making a comeback to the NBA. Further, he indicated that he would play for anybody—even the Clippers!—just for a chance to play in the pros again. But, as it turns out, that might not be entirely true.

We're still pretty sure that AI would be open to playing for whoever will have him. But, over the weekend, Iverson's manager Gary Moore revealed that his client—who was nearly dealt to the Boston Celtics in a draft-day trade back in 2006—would love to play in Beantown if and when the NBA lockout ends.

"I have already spoken to Allen about that and many other opportunities," Moore told the Boston Globe. "And, of course, he would be interested in anywhere in the NBA, but Boston is particularly attractive to him because of Danny Ainge, the organization, and one of the most respected coaches he knows in the business in Doc Rivers. He has the utmost respect for Doc Rivers and the current roster of players. Allen would relish the opportunity to play in that organization."

Hmmm...AI in Boston? With Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce already on the roster, this team would have one hell of an over-35 squad down at the local YMCA, huh?
