[JTA.Org]NEW YORK (JTA) — Former NBA Most Valuable Player Allen Iverson reportedly will play for Maccabi Haifa in its two exhibition games against NBA teams — and perhaps longer.
Iverson, 37, will suit up for the Israeli squad when it takes on the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves this month in the United States, the Israeli Sport5 site reported.
Sport5 added that Maccabi Haifa officials are considering signing the perennial NBA All-Star guard to a longer contract if the experiment succeeds.
Is this the greatest Hanukkah gift of all-time for Philadelphians? It has to be right? A Maccabi, Iverson jersey? Are you kidding me? That’s like I died and went to Jew heaven. Someone get Squeak that jersey.
