Ann Iverson, mother of NBA superstar Allen, has become the owner of an ABA franchise. Richmond will be the city, and there's not a nickname yet, though "Iversons" or "Answers" might be a good bet.

If you're not familiar with Ann Iverson, you probably haven't watched a Sixers game in a while. This ABA franchise will not lack for enthusiasm from the front office. At Sixers games, she's the one in the front row, wearing an Iverson jersey and carrying some glitter-encrusted sign that indicates the joy that her baby brings her. She doesn't make herself difficult to notice.

Which raises an interesting question. If Ann attends a Richmond Iversons game, does she wear an Iverson jersey, or does she wear a Richmond jersey? If she opts for the ABA year, it might be the first time she's been seen in public in anything other than an Iverson jersey. I wonder if she'll petition the league to let every player wear the #3.
