Former Sixers sideline reporter Jaime Maggio just tweeted that Allen Iverson will be in attendance to toss up the honorary tip at Game 6 of the Celtics series this evening in South Philadelphia. This after Slam Online's Tzvi Twersky's sources said A.I. would be in the building for tonight's must-win game.
Dr. J has handled the honorary tip duties earlier in the series. Something tells me Iverson might elicit a louder crowd response.
My suggestion: instead of wasting your time having A.I. toss a ball into the air, just have him run around the court cupping his ear for a few minutes.
Allen Iverson will do honorary tip-off in Philly tonight for Game 6.

Can confirm Allen invited. To attend, he will need good weather/on-time flight. RT @TTwersky Allen Iverson plans to attend Game 6 in Phila
