The Sixers had a meet-and-greet last night at Lucky Strike Bowling Lanes. Allen Iverson decided he didn't want to go to the mandatory team function and will be fined by the team. He also left practice early and there was some sort of confrontation with Mo Cheeks.
A source said Iverson was upset when he left practice earlier in the
day, less than an hour after the 11 a.m. start at Philadelphia College
of Osteopathic Medicine.
After practice, Cheeks said Iverson had left early because he "was a little fatigued.''
Asked whether Iverson had been upset, Cheeks said, "Whatever happened between him and me, I'd like to keep that private.''
Just another day in the life of the Answer.
