VIDEO: Allen Iverson Presents Game Ball Before 76ers Vs. Celtics Game 6

Needing a spark to spur them in an elimination game against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday, the Philadelphia 76ers were visited by an unlikely source. Allen Iverson, one of the franchise's most iconic superstars, has largely been out of the public eye since the unceremonious end to his NBA career. He decided to come back to show his face before the fans who once rooted for him.

Sporting a Lou Williams jersey and a 76ers jacket and hat, Iverson didn't do anything bombastic, but it didn't matter. All he had to do was walk out to center court, present the game ball, give referee Joey Crawford a big hug and wish the 76ers luck. The Philadelphia crowd reacted appropriately.

Here's video of the whole sequence.

A fun moment, indeed. The only thing that would have been better is if Iverson walked over to Tyronn Lue, now a Celtics assistant coach, and tried to step over him. At least we were able to get this face.
