Chris Mannix tells story of being a ball boy asked to buy beer for Allen Iverson

Allen Iverson Sixers

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated (also host of a weekly show on NBC Sports Radio, plus he’s a regular guest on the NBC Sports Network ) grew up in the Boston area, went to Boston College, and for a decade was a ball boy at the Boston Garden.

With that comes a lot of good stories, like the time Allen Iverson sent him out to buy beer after a game. A story he recounts in the video above from SI.

It’s too great a tale not to pass along.
