Posted by Bob Biscigliano in Allen Iverson, Detroit Pistons, Never complain your fingers hurt because then your back's gonna hurt from pulling landscaping duty
I just wrote a post about how the Pistons have a chance to use Iverson's ailing back as an excuse to never play him again this season, kind of like the Lions may have done with Jon Kitna. Obviously Iverson would not let anyone tell him to fake an injury so he can't play basketball, but it's a fun mind game to play (or would he, if the only other option was playing 10 minutes a night?).
Anyway, Iverson will definitely miss the Chauncey Billups homecoming dance tomorrow night, as he will be flying to Washington DC to receive a second opinion on his back. According to the ESPN report, AI fears that the back injury may be more serious than he originally thought. Conveniently more serious?
