Allen Iverson eyes Sixers front-office job

Appearing in the broadcast booth with Marc Zumoff and Malik Allen on Wednesday night, Iverson revealed that he would like to join the Sixers front office. “I have a relationship with these fans like no other. And with this city and with this organization,” Iverson explained of his ties to Philadelphia. “Anything I can do to help, I’m here.” The conversation then turned to Iverson’s post-retirement plans, and if he would like to remain around the game, potentially in a front office capacity. “I would like to be even in that war room,” Iverson replied. “Even if they don’t go with my decision or whatever, just to have an opinion and putting out what I think and trusting the organization to do what’s right.”

Derrick Rose may be cleared to begin activity within a week, and be able to practice shortly thereafter, Chicago Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said Monday. The Bulls haven’t ruled Rose out for the opening game of the regular season against Cleveland Oct. 27. He had surgery Sept. 30 on a fractured left orbital bone suffered in practice a day earlier. “Derrick, hopefully in another week, will be able to start getting active again, and then hopefully start practicing shortly thereafter,” Hoiberg said. Rose was at the United Center for the Bulls’ preseason game against the New Orleans Pelicans Monday night, but likely wouldn’t be on the bench, Hoiberg said. “He’s still getting a little bit of blurred vision, so I feel it’s best for him to watch the game in the back,” Hoiberg said. “But I know he’s excited to be here and be with the guys in the locker room.”

Scoop Jackson: Did you think that winning a championship would shut up a lot of the people who had critical evaluations of your game when you came into college last year? Jahlil Okafor: That wasn’t my thought, that if I won a championship I wouldn’t get any criticism. I just think that playing in a championship game and playing in every game in March Madnessb that’s just more time for critics to watch you and more time for them to nitpick at what you don’t do well or what they feel you don’t do well. During the whole season, they said our team didn’t play defense, that our team was one of the worst defensive teams in Duke’s history, but somehow we still won the national championship, so I’m going to let the experts do their thing. Look, I’m definitely not the caliber player that LeBron is, but I find it funny how people can criticize him and the way he plays the game. So it’s pretty easy to criticize me if they are still able to criticize LeBron.
