IFWT_AIAllen Iverson wants back in the NBA. This time he wants in from the executive level as he is trying to campaign for a front office job. Iverson no doubt had the biggest heart of maybe any player we had seen at the NBA level but does that mean he would be good at evaluating talent of other players? He seems to think so.


Appearing on the CSN Philly telecast of last night’s 76ers-Pistons game, Iverson was asked about joining the team’s front office.


“I would like to be even in that war room. Even if they don’t go with my decision or whatever, just to have an opinion and putting out what I think and trusting the organization to do what’s right”.

What does he look for in a player that others might miss?

“Their fight. Their fight. The fight in a guy. I’m the biggest Westbrook fan I think there is. You know what I mean? Because he reminds me so much of myself as far as his heart and laying it on the line night in and night out. This is a guy who’s going to bring it every single night”

Iverson is definitely right about the comparison between himself and Russell, and who knows maybe AI would be able to see something in young players that executives who never played the game wouldn’t.
