As we look forward to the return of legendary 76er Allen Iverson to the (215) one week from tonight, we begin a tribute to the Answer and will take a look back at some of Allen Iverson’s greatest moments in a Sixer uniform. We will be counting down his top 10 highlights on daily basis with the top three coming on game-day, Wednesday, March 19th at the Wachovia Center.
Without further ado, lets begin the countdown…
No. 10 – Easy like Sunday Morning
On a Sunday afternoon game in Toronto’s Maple Leaf Garden, with the shot clock running down, Sixer guard Eric Snow drives into the lane and draws two defenders, (as we all know in the (215) why would anyone leave their man to help on Eric Snow) . Snow stops, pulls up and attempts a bank runner that is naturally off the mark and a highlight for the ages is in the making.
While the ball hangs in the air, 6-11 Raptor center, Marcus Camby appears to have great box out position on a Sixers big man (is that Scottie Williams), when the 6 foot Iverson SKIES over the trees and emphatically one hand slams the put back over the Camby Man. Promptly followed by native Canuck John Saunders “ARE YOU KIDDING ME? That’s a point guard folks. You know once a game this guy will do something that will make you fall out of your seat!”
