In the category of.. "thought he was already retired and gone..." Allen Iverson is expected to "officially" announce his retirement from the NBA sometime within the next few days. NOTE: In case you forgot... Iverson has not played in the NBA for three years. ESPN (Mike and Mike) had a taped interview that was done years ago. The question was put to Iverson "why do you miss practices?" His answer was... (NOT Verbatim)... "why should I practice? It will not make my team mates any better."
