“… by any means necessary…”

Correct Answer, by Jack McCallum

“Correct Answer,” by Jack McCallum. Sports Illustrated magazine. January 8, 2007.

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.”

  2. Dear AmericanMuslim:

    yeah, it’s easy for AI to say that he’s “just a general” in his coach’s army… easy to say, because AI has barely spent any time with the coach, or playing for the coach. just wait a few months or years, and we might get to see AI turn the tables, where the COACH will be the “general” in AI’s army! lol!

    btw, i hope all’s set for tonight’s presentation and get-together. enjoy!

  4. Dear Takumi:

    man, i’m sorry about that! i was telling them, as they waited for you to open the door, that you were probably loading your shotgun. but they are brave souls, i’ll give them that! and then when we gave up, we started walking away, but YS turned us back and gave it one last try.

    but the juice was worth it, man! that was awesome! that tangy taste! i can already feel my life getting longer! lol!
