Part of the festivities included a speech by Joshua Harris and it was certainly one for the ages for all the wrong reasons.
Harris was not the Sixers owner when Iverson was in the dominant stage of his career so it is hard to blame the guy for not understanding the connection of Iverson to the city. But nothing made his disconnect more apparent than his statement saying "we're looking for the next Allen Iverson!"
There is never going to be another Allen Iverson.
This was a great honor for Iverson but the speech by Harris left a lot to be desired.
