Game 6 between the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics got real when the 76ers invited Allen Iverson back to hand out the game ball. It got the crowd going, provided an iconic moment and helped give Philadelphia the emotional lift needed to push the series to a Game 7.
All this means one thing: The Celtics need to steal Philadelphia's idea.
With their battered team needing a boost, the Celtics would be smart to have one of their most popular players do exactly what Iverson did before Saturday's Game 7. The problem: the Celtics have had a lot of popular players throughout their history. The obvious candidate would be Larry Bird, but he's a little preoccupied right now. With Bird not an option, the Celtics need to find someone else.
This is where you guys come in. If you were running the Celtics, which legend would you invite back to hand out the game ball at Game 7? Let us know in the comments.
