An Unexpected Patriot

“If a person is selected to a team like this, it shouldn’t even be a question in your mind….It should be an honor to accept. If you grew up in the USA, you need to think of all the things the USA did for you — how it allowed you to support your family and be recognized as a household name.”

Pretty impressive. The source? None other than the unconventional Philadelphia 76ers’ guard Allen Iverson on being invited to represent the USA in olympic basketball. Wow. I, for one, am impressed. Too bad the rest of the team doesn’t share this attitude.
