Allen Iverson must feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

Imagine coming down the stairs and finding the Atlantic division title wrapped under the tree in a box measuring 6-foot-10 and weighing 260 lbs. Those dimensions are precisely what Chris Webber will bring to the Philadelphia 76ers.

In a city still reeling from a fourth consecutive year of watching the Eagles come up short in their bid for a Super Bowl title, Iverson and the Sixers have been given newfound energy and an almost certainty that they will extend their season into May.
