Allen Iverson is done for the season

It's official:

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Detroit Pistons President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars announced today that guard Allen Iverson will miss the remainder of the season. The all-star guard missed 16 games between February 27 and March 28 after exiting a game at New Orleans with a sore back on February 25.

"After talking with Allen and our medical staff, we feel that resting Allen for the remainder of the season is the best course of action at this time," said Dumars. "While he has played in our last three games, he is still feeling some discomfort and getting him physically ready to compete at the level he is accustomed to playing this late in the season does not seem possible at this point."

Can something be the most predictable thing in the world and yet still surprising? Given AI's pride and his likely refusal to accept a supporting role for peanuts this summer, we may have already seen his last game in the NBA.
