Allen Iverson - Olympic BasketBall
After getting embarrassed at the World Basketball Championships in 2002, the US Basketball Team said it was going to send the best players it could find to play in the Olympic qualifying tournament in 2003.
They've already picked Ray Allen, Tim Duncan, Jason Kidd and Tracy McGrady - but haven't called Allen Iverson yet. Why not? Is it because Allen Iverson takes too many shots? Is it because he has too many tattoos? Is it because Allen sometimes talks too much?
? Should Allen Iverson be named to the US Olympic Team or should he spend this summer at home? Vote in the online poll below and let Kidzworld know what you think. We'll pass the results on to USA Basketball and see if they'll pick up the phone and give Allen a call.
Kidzworld thinks Allen Iverson is one of the best basketball players of all-time and should definitely be playing for Team USA. He has the NBA's best crossovers, he plays his butt off every game and he's the reason the Philadelphia 76ers are near the top of the Eastern Conference. A.I. could be The Answer to America's Olympic basketball woes.
