Allen Iverson

NPR's Tom Goldman reports that the National Basketball Association's 50th All-Star game will be played in Washington D.C. on Sunday. The league has many stars, but no transcendent superstar has emerged since the retirement of Michael Jordan. One leading candidate is Allen Iverson, a guard for the Philadelphia 76ers who is known as much for his profane outbursts and violent rap lyrics as for his wondrous play.
