VIDEO: Allen Iverson Praises Fans In Interview

Allen Iverson stepped on the court to raucous cheers prior to tonight's game, a moment that AI said during this mid game interview made his legs like jelly and caused him to tear up.

Iverson was asked about Kevin Garnett's comments that Philadelphia fans were "fair-weather," but declined to address KG directly. He did however say he always appreciated the passion on the part of the home fans.

When asked whether he had officially decided to retire, Iverson said that he accepted that he'd likely never play in the NBA again, but still wants to play pro basketball somewhere.
