allen-iverson-hands-spread.jpgIf you, dear reader, are an Allen Iverson fan and were beside yourself over his retirement from the NBA, today brings forth very exciting news that will bring you back to the living.

He's baaaaaaaack.

Yes, after announcing last week he was hanging up his sneakers, the 10-time All-Star has agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Iverson returns to the team where he spent parts of 11 seasons and served as the face of the franchise. This comes after an ill-fated stint with the Memphis Grizzlies, which came after an equally ill-fated stint with the Detroit Pistons.

The 34-year-old's production has dropped off greatly, which could be a factor in the ill-fated nature of his previous two stops. Once one of the premiere scorers in the game, Iverson managed only 17.4 points a contest last year in Detroit.

The Sixers are currently floundering with a 5-13 record.
