Kwame Brown held a press conference on Thursday announcing the official start to the “Summer of Kwame”, the highly anticipated start to the NBA’s free agent period when, according to Brown, “the world will finally find out where I will play next season.”

Brown listed the 32 NBA teams with enough salary cap space to sign him and said that he would carefully weigh his options before “giving one team the good news.”

“I’ll probably meet with Dwyane [Wade] and Chris [Bosh] to see if they’re interested in playing together,” said Brown, who averaged 3.3 points per game last season with the Pistons. “I’m also waiting on at least 23 teams to return my phone calls, so things are definitely looking good for Kwame.”

Though Brown continues to insist that he is the most sought-after free agent on the market, conflicting reports from are claiming this to be the “Summer of Rasho.”

Iverson’s left knee announces retirement from rest of body

After having two procedures to drain fluid from its arthritic body, Allen Iverson’s left knee has decided to call it quits. After 13 grueling seasons, Iverson’s body has clearly taken a beating, but this is the first indication of surrender from an individual body part. The former MVP’s left knee insists it can still compete at the highest level, but this decision will afford it more quality time with its anatomical family and friends, chiefly Iverson’s elbow and shoulder.

“I always thought that when I left the game, it would be because I couldn’t help Allen the way that I was accustomed to,” said the desolate knee. “However, that is not the case. I’m still as capable as his right knee and believe I can compete with the best knees in the NBA.”

Although Iverson, along with his left knee, missed the last two games, he insists he can coerce his knee to returning.

“My left knee spent some regrettable time in Detroit and Memphis followed by a month long vacation on my couch, but now we are home,” said Iverson. “My right knee has recognized this opportunity…there is no reason my left won’t.”

Sixers’ 10th straight loss reminding Iverson of good times

Allen Iverson couldn’t help but feel nostalgic during the latter half of Monday’s 93-83 loss to the Nuggets, his first game back since signing with the Sixers last week.

“I know the fans really tried to make me feel at home to start the game, but I still felt out of place…like something was missing in the first half,” said Iverson, who helped the Sixers take a 44-41 lead at halftime. “Once we started to throw up wild threes and forget to open our eyes on defense in the second half, I knew I was home. It’s great to feel this way again.”

The Sixers will face the Detroit Pistons at home on Wednesday, another one of Iverson’s former teams, who also suck this year which should give the game a nice WNBA Finals-like feel.
