Allen Iverson makes his debut with the 76ers on Monday, and we're all wondering whether he can recapture his lost glory now that he is reunited with his former franchise.

The answer (no pun intended) all depends on your expectations. If you're thinking Iverson is going to put the Sixers on his back and carry them into the playoffs, you're about half a decade too late. But if you're asking whether Iverson can be a productive starter, fit in with the Sixers' lineup and provide enough of a bridge to Lou Williams' return to keep the Sixers on the fringes of the chase for No. 8 in the East, I'll offer an emphatic "yes."
