Even Less Philliness,....
The Allen Iverson era with the 76ers appears to be over.
About three hours after Iverson issued a statement last night saying "a change may be the best thing for everyone," Sixers chairman Ed Snider said that Iverson asked to be traded and that the team would try to accommodate him.
"We're going to trade him," Snider said in a corridor of the Wachovia Center at halftime of the Sixers' game against the Washington Wizards. "I think it's time for him to move on, and for us to move on and find out where everything stands."
Although he indicated that he did not want to tolerate more disruptions from Iverson, Snider said he wanted to remember Iverson's good times with the Sixers, including the trip to the 2001 NBA Finals, in the season Iverson won the NBA's most-valuable-player award.
To which the TrekMedic adds:
No more "gangsta" thuggery. No more illegal guns and sleazy lawyers bailing you out. No more of your mom acting like an idiot in public.
Don't let the doors to the Wachovia Center hit you in the ass on the way out, AI. That might cause more brain damage!
