Allen Iverson battled the snow and arrived at the Pepsi Arena in Denver about an hour before tip-off, passed his physical (What did the doc do, make sure he had two arms and two legs?) and was in uniform in time for warm-ups for the Nuggets game against the Sacramento Kings.
Let the new A.I. 2.0 Era begin.
(Why is ESPN showing me this lame game between the Spurs and Rockets and not cutting in with live updates of A.I.’s debut in Denver?!)
A.I. entered the game late in the first quarter and made his first shot, a 12-foot fadeaway. He finished with 7 points in the first half. He finished with 22 points and 10 assists (!) in nearly 40 minutes. Yet the Nuggets lost 101-96.
