Iverson Skips Practice, Is Suspended for Game

March 17, 2000|Associated Press

MIAMI — Tension escalated between Allen Iverson and Philadelphia 76er management when he was suspended for at least one game for skipping the team's shootaround Thursday morning.

Iverson sat out Thursday night's 92-77 loss to the Miami Heat.

"I felt I had a better relationship with this organization," he said. "I don't think this is fair at all."

76er owner Pat Croce said the suspension will probably be for only one game, but Coach Larry Brown was more vague.

"He missed practice today, but there's a lot more to it," Brown said. "I've let it go too far."

Iverson has clashed previously with Brown. Croce said the All-Star guard missed practices a couple of weeks ago, but the problem was temporarily resolved after a meeting with Brown.
