Is "The Answer" Breaking Down?

As Allen Iverson enters his 14th NBA season with his new team the Memphis Grizzlies, it appears that father time may be finally taking a toll on the diminutive guard who throughout his career has been relatively injury free. Back injuries cut short Iverson's season last year with the Detroit Pistons, and now it looks like Iverson will be sidelined for the remainder of the NBA pre-season with a partial tear in his left hamstring. Iverson continues to oppose becoming a bench player, thus taking less of a beating as a player, but it looks like his body may dictate the final years of his career and the level production that he will be able to contribute to any team.
