The guy sounds like he's been waiting Allen Iverson's whole career to write that column. Good on 'im. I'm sure there's a long line of other sports journalists behind him ready to do the same thing. But there are other people too. They are called fans. And a staggering amount of them bought AI's jersey over other jerseys, sent AI to the All-Star Game repeatedly for reasons only they know. So...let's hear it for the fans. Who will have mixed feelings about this news and will do their best not to read ugly columns like this one. These kind of pieces aren't journalism and they don't change anyone's minds...they just show that someone had an ax to grind and a place to do it. BIG DEAL. So Allen is going to retire. I'll miss watching him between the lines. I won't miss what an easy target he made himself and I won't miss watching people take shots. Au revoir, Allen. I'm so glad I saw you play in Sacramento that last time.
