Allen Iverson Emotional at Thursday’s HOF Event


On the eve of his induction, Allen Iverson was in vintage form during Thursday’s festivities at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Iverson, one of the headliners in the 10-member Class of 2016, arrived tardy and missed a jacket ceremony, then engaged in an enthralling half-hour question-and-answer session with reporters that culminated with an emotional Iverson fighting back tears as he thanked those who aided his journey to the Hall. The Class of 2016 will be inducted Friday night at Springfield Symphony Hall.
