Here are some totally random excerpts from this article.  There is seemingly no rationale for the excerpts I have chosen.  It may even be unwise to read these excerpts, because, like I said, there is no sense to them.


… [Iverson] says, “I’m lickin’ my lips all the time” because they’re chapped from the cold.

… Iverson, whose only trip to the Finals with the 76ers, in 2001…

… the Dec. 16 Madison Square Garden melee…

(See, among others: Kobe-Shaq, The Last Years.)

… [Iverson]… donned the powder blue and yellow…

Guard DerMarr Johnson took number 8, willingly ceding his 3 to Iverson.

And unless the Nuggets are total dolts…

… there is the buzz in the seven-year-old Pepsi Center that hasn’t been there since, well, ever.

… because of his pell-mell style…

“Whatever Coach wants me to do,” said Iverson. “I’m just a general in his army.”
