Sixers got TJ McConnell ‘White Iverson’ jersey for Christmas
Nobody celebrates Christmas quite like the Philadelphia 76ers do.
Sixers big man Amir Johnson posted a priceless photo to his Instagram Story on Friday of an apparent Christmas gift adorning third-year guard TJ McConnell’s locker: a No. 3 “White Iverson” jersey.

The gift makes for a cool double entendre beyond just the reference to the Post Malone song since McConnell is a Sixers guard just like Allen Iverson was. Yes, the two have pretty different styles of play, and McConnell actually wears No. 12 instead of Iverson’s now-retired No. 3. But in any case, it’s not the first time that McConnell has been compared to an all-time great.
