Reportedly “The Answer” was set to have a news conference that day to announce his retirement from basketball. As we all know, that press conference never happened.
Later that day, Iverson’s personal manager Gary Moore told the Associated Press that Iverson “totally disputes” any report of his retirement. Moore said Iverson needs to have a painful lesion removed from his right calf. He said the injury was the most painful that Iverson has had in his career.
Now ESPN’s Rich Bucher has an update on this story which tells us Iverson has visited with uber-surgeon James Andrews and has now elected NOT to go under the knife.
