The business relationship between 76ers star Allen Iverson and agent David Falk is over, but the infighting is not. SFX, the company for which Falk is the chairman and chief operating officer, has filed claims with the National Basketball Players Association seeking payment of the fees it believes are due for Falk negotiating the guaranteed, six-year, $70.875 million contract extension Iverson signed in January 1999, just before the start of...

A few hours before the 76ers were to play the Miami Heat on March 5 in one of the marquee matchups of the young season, Allen Iverson's mother was making plans to fly from Norfolk, Va., to Philadelphia to watch the game. She never made it aboard the plane. Her trip was blocked because her travel agent, citing unpaid bills, wouldn't issue a ticket, several family sources said. This occurred less than a month after Iverson had signed a six-year, $70.9 million contract extension.

He spent the last two years eating Polynesian food and walking the Australian outback in search of souls to save for his church - an experience that almost certainly did not enhance his basketball skills. So how do you put a contract value on 7-foot, 6-inch Shawn Bradley? His agent, David Falk, says that the 76ers already have done so, merely by making Bradley - who played one season for Brigham Young University before going on his religious mission down under - the second choice in the NBA draft.

Allured by the rap music industry and uncertain about his future in superagent David Falk's stable, 76ers star guard Allen Iverson is considering leaving Falk to join Sean "Puffy" Combs and BadBoy Entertainment, according to people with knowledge of Iverson's thinking. A switch from Falk, a 49-year-old power broker and premier NBA agent, to Combs, a 26-year-old hip-hop music producer and performer, would represent a major change in how - and by whom - sports' new generation of athletes chooses to be represented.

Shaquille O'Neal can listen to the Lakers, Reggie Miller can telephone the Knicks, Dennis Rodman can assess his post-title value and even Michael Jordan can go shopping. As of noon today, the largest and gaudiest free-agent market in NBA history will open for business as soon as the collective bargaining agreement between the league and players is ratified. Nearly unanimous approval is expected. "Then all the madness begins," Miller said yesterday. About 150 players whose contracts have expired will be available.

Shawn Bradley's next step is to practice with the 76ers' rookies and free agents. The unsigned 7-6 center, the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft, left yesterday for White Plains, N.Y., where he will continue the physical conditioning regimen he has followed for more than a week in Philadelphia. There is a good chance that he will practice tomorrow and Friday with the players representing the Sixers this week in the Doral-Arrowwood Summer League hosted by the New York Knicks. He will not play in any of the four remaining games, including tonight's date with the New Jersey Nets.

The league office would be receptive to Michael Jordan returning to the NBA as a part-owner and director of basketball operations for the Washington Wizards. "We've made it clear that we think it'd be a terrific thing to have Michael Jordan involved in the NBA in whatever capacity he wants to be involved in. That's no secret," deputy commissioner Russ Granik said yesterday. "That would be wherever and whatever he was interested in doing. " A shroud of secrecy continued to hang over negotiations between current Wizards owner Abe Pollin, minority owner Ted Leonsis and Jordan.

Philadelphia's history with so-called "super agents" has been at best tumultuous. Baseball agent Scott Boras and client J.D. Drew spurned the Phillies in 1997, refusing to sign after the Phils made Drew the second overall pick in that year's MLB draft. Football agent Drew Rosenhaus and client Terrell Owens alienated the Eagles in 2005. As Eagles fans may remember, Rosenhaus stood with Owens for a news conference on the wide receiver's front lawn. Owens never again played with the Eagles.

In an escalation of the rhetoric surrounding the NBA's labor mess, commissioner David Stern blasted agent David Falk yesterday. Five days before the players were to vote on whether to dissolve their union or accept a new agreement, the commissioner accused Falk of disparaging his own clients and distorting components of the deal. "He'll stop at nothing," Stern said of Falk, who represents Michael Jordan and Patrick Ewing and is a leading proponent of disbanding the players' union and pursuing an antitrust suit against the league.

As an agent, David Falk's stake in the 76ers includes a major chunk of the present (Elton Brand) and perhaps a star of the future (Evan Turner). We'll all know much more about Turner at the beginning of Thursday night's NBA draft, in which the Sixers hold the No. 2 pick. Conventional wisdom says the Sixers remain focused on Turner, the guard from Ohio State. The speculators would like you to believe there's a split in the organization, one side preferring Turner, another faction lobbying for 19-year-old Georgia Tech forward Derrick Favors.

Could Michael Jordan's next big acquisition for the Washington Wizards be - Michael Jordan? Citing a source identified only as being "very close to Jordan," Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly reported in this week's edition that the former NBA great is "90 percent committed" to making a comeback next season with the Wizards and that Jordan wants Charles Barkley to come out of retirement and join him. Jordan's agent, however, dismissed the...

Dikembe Mutombo knew he'd probably be traded. The soon-to-be-former Atlanta Hawk even joked about it with the 76ers' Larry Brown, who coached Mutombo's victorious East team in the NBA All-Star Game in Washington 12 days ago. "He told me he wanted a warm climate," a smiling Brown recalled as snow fell yesterday outside the First Union Center. What remains to be seen is how toasty a reception the 7-2 Mutombo receives in the same building when he makes his first home appearance in a Sixers uniform Monday against Milwaukee.

For nine seasons, Jaren Jackson floated from one basketball job to another, never acquiring a permanent residence. He was not drafted by an NBA team, and since the 1989-90 season, he has played for nine NBA teams, including the Sixers, and has spent time in the Continental Basketball Association and World Basketball League. But after his performance in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday, Jaren Jackson might finally be able to put away those change-of-address cards. He nailed four pivotal three-pointers in the second half for the Spurs.

This wasn't, in the strictest sense, a "Dear John" letter. It was "Dear David. " It was from 76ers star Allen Iverson, delivered Friday to agent David Falk, saying Falk would no longer be representing him. And that was why, as Iverson watched practice yesterday at the University of Washington in Seattle with his right leg encased in a compression boot and an ice pack resting against a split lower lip, he was a man without an agent....

After months of rumors, 76ers star Allen Iverson has severed his ties with David Falk, the NBA's premier superagent who represented him for 2 1/2 years. A number of people close to Iverson expect him to sign soon with Magic Johnson, who has become a sports agent in collaboration with the William Morris Agency. Iverson said his lawyers from Virginia Beach, Va., drew up papers to dismiss Falk, who is Michael Jordan's agent, on Thursday and had them sent to Falk Associates Management Enterprise (FAME)
