article imageNBA: Iverson looking for a return

By Michael Bearak     Jun 18, 2010 in Sports
Philadelphia - Allen Iverson has announced that he is going to make a comeback for the 2010-2011 NBA season after taking a leave of absence in March for personal reasons.
When Allen Iverson announced he was taking a leave of absence from Philadelphia 76ers back in March, many people thought that it was the last time Iverson would set foot on the court as an NBA player.
Iverson's person business manager, Gary Moore told ESPN, "Allen is working out and he's getting himself prepared to make his return. He absolutely will try and play next year."
While Iverson hasn't talked publicly about his leave of absence, it has been confirmed that it was for his daughter, Messiah, who is four and has been suffering from an ailment Iverson won't discuss.
Allen Iverson turned 35 on June 7th, and his wife announced that she was filing for divorce back in March when he left the team. The 14-year veteran averages 26.7 points per game while playing with four different teams. While Iverson led the 76ers to the NBA finals the first time he was with the team in 2001, he has yet to win a championship. He later played for the Denver Nuggets, but failed to find his groove on the team.
Sixers president Ed Stefanski said he was, "not aware of what his plans are for the future."
