All kidding aside, if Tim Hardaway is qualified to own an ABA team, who says Mrs. Iverson isn’t?


Allen Iverson’s mom showed her own crossover skills Friday, when the ABA announced she’ll have her own team this season.

Ann Iverson (above) will be the majority owner and chairwoman of the American Basketball Association’s new team in Richmond, Va.

“Richmond is a great basketball city and will be a great ABA city. We are pleased to be back there,” ABA CEO Joe Newman said. “We have a tremendous ownership group, very knowledgeable and experienced and we know that they will do a terrific job.”

I sincerely hope Mrs. Iverson and the ABA strongly consider my suggested name for the new franchise : The Richmond Family Jewelz.
