Allen Iverson takes over 76ers' Twitter account
Allen Iverson took over the Philadelphia 76ers' Twitter account on Wednesday night, and The Answer delivered on the promise to provide entertaining answers to fan questions.
Among the highlights: his choice for the most stylish player today, his five favorite players to play against, the greatest moment of his 76ers career, the odds of him playing cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles next season, thoughts on Michael Jordan and more.
Shocking for anyone who was a young basketball fan during Iverson's peak years: A.I. turns 40 in June.
Nothing against Banks, who played in the NBA from 2003 to to 2011 with the Boston Celtics, Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns, Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors and New Orleans Hornets, but this has to be the surprise answer of Iverson's Twitter takeover.
Iverson also got pretty serious at points:
He did, at least, offer a fan a happy birthday. You don't always see those Twitter requests obliged by stars.
