Allen Iverson to return to Philadelphia for bobblehead night

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Allen Iverson is making a return to Philadelphia.

Iverson has accepted the Philadelphia 76ers' invitation to return for his bobblehead night Saturday and will present the game ball before they play Charlotte.

Sixers CEO Adam Aron says Iverson rearranged his schedule to make the trip to Philadelphia. The Sixers will salute one of their greatest players with a video tribute.

Iverson led the Sixers to the 2001 NBA finals and is firmly cemented as one of the franchise's all-time greats. He is the franchise leader in 40-point games (76), 3-pointers (885), and is second behind Hal Greer in points (19,931). He had two stints with the Sixers and last played for them in 2009-10.

Aron says Iverson decided to return because "he loves his fans and he loves Philadelphia."
