Sample Book Insights:

#1 Sam Hinkie, the general manager of the Sixers, was hired in 2013 to rebuild the team. In 2006, King had decided to trade Allen Iverson, one of the league’s premier scorers, to the Denver Nuggets. He called Iverson and told him that he was going to be a Nugget.

#2 Brown had brought King with him to Philadelphia nine years earlier. The Sixers had a young, transcendent star in Allen Iverson. But they hadn’t won anything in 16 years, and their new owners were unwilling to accept such results.

#3 Iverson and Brown were constantly bickering, and Iverson would rarely if ever lift weights or care about his appearance. He would often show up to practices late and smelling of alcohol.

#4 That summer, the Sixers and Iverson came to an agreement: Iverson would remain a Sixer for now. In a few months, they would be very thankful that he was.
