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.

    Should Iverson be in the Olympics?

    • Obviously - he's got some of the best game in the world.
    • No way - he's a selfish player who takes too many shots.

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
