Basketball great Allen Iverson said on his Twitter account that he definitely will return to his Camp Crossover, which will be held July 6-9 at the Boo Williams Sportsplex in Hampton.
The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the first three days. On July 9, “Championship Day” will be contested from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
From 5-6:30 p.m. that day, dads and father figures in the campers’ lives are encouraged to come to a special fatherhood forum.
A camp brochure is available here:
Allen Iverson has heard a lot of negative comments during his tempestuous career. He wasn’t used to hearing them about his toughness, though. Iverson returned Sunday after missing 16 games with a back injury and scored eight points in 21 minutes of the Detroit Pistons’ 101-97 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.
After the game, he acknowledged being hurt by media reports that he might not play again this season.
“The one thing that everyone has always known about me is that I’m a warrior—the doctors would say I’d be out two-four weeks, and I’d come back in a week,” he said. “So now I have an injury I’ve never had before—one that was bothering me—and people are suddenly questioning my courage. That was hard, but I know positive stories don’t sell.
At 33 years of age, Iverson is still tough as nails. Pistons play the league-leading Cavs tonight. Should be a good one.
