Rather than regale you with another tale of one of my many LeBron James jerseys, let's shine the spotlight on a jersey from the Heat's first-round opponent, the Philadelphia 76ers.
I don't have a jersey of any current 76ers players, but even if I did, I'd probably be showing this jersey instead. The Allen Iverson blue alternate was one of my favorite basketball jerseys in my collection for awhile, which makes sense, because post-Jordan and pre-LeBron, Iverson was probably my favorite player in the league.
Interesting footnote to this jersey: I have dozens of McFarlane Sports Picks action figures, but only four bobbleheads. Two are Mets related, one is a Jason Terry Hawks bobblehead my mom got for me in Atlanta, and the other -- the only bobblehead I've ever purchased for myself -- is of Iverson, wearing this jersey. It was available at McDonald's in the Philly area to celebrate his 2000-01 MVP award, and I picked it up on eBay that summer. I still have it somewhere in my basement, and I should probably break it out at some point.
Oh, and Heat win by 7 tonight. Book it.
Jersey Monday will continue every Monday until I run out of jerseys to spotlight. And since I’ve got more than 150 of them, that could be awhile.
