Iverson’s home debut against the NBA champs

The Allen Iverson Era started off well enough on Friday... but then halftime happened.

Expect tonight's game to go at least a little bit smoother now that AI has had a chance to get another practice in and become at least a little more familiar with his new teammates. As if Iverson needed any more pressure making his Palace debut, the world champion NBA champion Boston Celtics are in town for the first time since that fateful Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

In hindsight, it's kind of fitting -- the fact that the Pistons lost that series is the biggest reason Joe Dumars felt a need to pull the trigger on a blockbuster in the first place. The ball tips in a few minutes -- tune in to FSN (or NBA TV) and, as always, leave your thoughts in the comments.
