Forging a Bond with Iverson -- McKie Interview on The BroadCast

by Brian Seltzer
Sixers.com Reporter

On Friday, September 9th, Allen Iverson will formally assume his place among the most iconic figures to ever play and be associated with the game of basketball, when he is enshrined in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. To culminate #AIWeek coverage on The BroadCast, Sixers.com’s Brian Seltzer and Sixers Radio Network broadcaster Tom McGinnis felt it would be timely to sit down with Aaron McKie. The Philadelphia native and Temple product was a valued teammate of Iverson, but, more than that, the two would go on to become trusted friends. In his interview, McKie discusses:

  • His happiness about being back at his alma mater, serving as an assistant coach.

  • Initially feeling like his NBA career was over after being traded to the Sixers in 1998.

  • The bond he forged with Iverson, and some of the misunderstandings surrounding the star.

The chat with McKie starts at the 8:25 mark of the podcast, which can be accessed here:
