"And when it appeared that the 6-foot former point guard [Allen Iverson] wouldn't arrive for the interview session [at the press conference at the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame], perhaps soiling an already tattered reputation, he slipped into the room six minutes after the session began and then revealed his heart and bore his soul for the next 32 minutes."  ["Iverson true to self," by Gary Washburn, Boston Globe, today, D3/2.]

I wonder if he brought a drill from the carpentry tools in his garage.  Or did his 32-minute-long heart revelations put his soul to sleep?
