Trade could cost Iverson his starting spot

December 31, 2006|From the Associated Press

Allen Iverson's trade to Denver could cost him his usual All-Star game starting spot.

A fan favorite, Iverson has started in all seven of his appearances. He was twice the MVP of the game, in 2001 and 2005.

He was on track to start again before the Philadelphia 76ers dealt him earlier this month, but that's now in jeopardy. The NBA released its second set of voting results this week, and Iverson had 975,319 votes.

That would have been second in the Eastern Conference behind Miami's Dwyane Wade, but it's only third in the West behind two other perennial starters, Kobe Bryant and Tracy McGrady.

Iverson has until late next month to make up the total if he wants to be a starter in Las Vegas on Feb. 18.
