Professional basketball is a business. But at the end of the day, basketball remains a game and a passion for those who play it. Anyone who needs a reminder should check out Allen Iverson's press conference yesterday announcing his return to the Philadelphia 76ers:

If he's so passionate about the game, why didn't he want to play for Memphis?

I am just rooting for A.I. to finish with style.

After this whole saga, I ended up reading the Wikipedia entry on A.I. and I was reminded of his interview about his jail time:

"For me to be in a bowling alley where everybody in the whole place know who I am and be crackin' people upside the head with chairs and think nothin' gonna happen? That's crazy! And what kind of a man would I be to hit a girl in the head with a damn chair? I rather have 'em say I hit a man with a chair, not no damn woman."

Guy deserves a second chance given the heart he has expressed throughout his life.
