DALLAS - Two weeks ago, Larry Brown told his Southern Methodist players they'd have a guest addressing them in the locker room before practice.
"One of my kids, Keith Frazier, the McDonald's all-American, he broke down when I told him Allen was coming," Brown said.
Brown already knew that Allen Iverson hadn't lost his appeal with young players.
"The two years after I got fired from Charlotte . . . everywhere I went [going to college practices], I would talk to the team, and after I was getting ready to leave, every kid would come up and ask about Allen. I'm serious," Brown said. "I can't walk through an airport when somebody doesn't come up to me. They don't know who I am all the time, but they'll say: 'You coached Allen.' "
