The Philadelphia 76ers are having a bad year, they currently sit at 15-46 the second worst record in the league and are on a 15 game losing streak which could still set an all-time NBA record.
However, their first year coach Brett Brown still believes that Sixers' legend Allen Iverson could not improve the team's record.
In a recent interview, Brown said: “I doubt it. I think, his fitness level, who knows?”
Iverson retired last year after a 14-year NBA career which included 11 years with the Sixers. The team recently retired his jersey at which time he gave an emotional speech in front of a packed crowd in Philadelphia.
The player, who was considered undersized is probably one of the greatest players in recent history to play for the 76ers but Brown believes that he would be no better than the group which has a chance of making NBA history for all the wrong reasons.
In a wide-ranging interview on NBC Sports, Brown was also questioned as to whether the team would win another game this season, to which he said:
“I feel like, if we can buy some time, we’ll play with enough energy where we can go steal a win. I think that there is a win in the group – maybe a few.”
But as for Iverson's chances of making the team this season if he wished, it looks like he won't unless he puts in a little practice.
