Allen Iverson is one of, if not the greatest Sixer of all-time.
That fact isn't really up for debate. The point guard proved his worth on the court plenty of times and Philly haven't been as competitive since he retired.
The Answer was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame this year after a stellar career that saw him breaking proverbial ankles just about every night.
But now, the 76ers are in a bad place. After three years of awful results - with a combined record of 47-199 - they have now started the season 0-7.
Coach Brett Brown asked Iverson to come and talk to his troops in a bid to inspire them, and the former point guard just hopes his message was received.
"What we have to understand is I hope the message registers," Iverson said. "That's all I can do is hope my voice means something to guys that are younger than me, and us guys that paved the way. ... If only one guy got it, then I'm happy."
With Joel Embiid emerging and bound to play more minutes in addition to Nerlens Noel and Ben Simmons returning from injury in the coming months, the Sixers have plenty of upside.
So what is Iverson's message to the fans?
"I want the fans here to be patient with those guys," Iverson said. "We've got the talent. It's here. Just be patient with them. And I just want those guys to believe in each other and trust in each other. That's it. The future is bright for us."
