Allegedly there was some positive progress on the NBA labor front yesterday.  NBA scribe / radio host Stephen A. Smith believes the lockout will be over within a week.

“I’ll play for anybody…”  That’s what 76ers legend Allen Iverson told Yahoo Sports when the topic turned to the possibility of “The Answer” coming back to the NBA during an interview promoting  his Las Vegas Superstar Challenge.

The Sixers recently let go of NBA scouts John Nash and Chris Ford.
