A tearful Allen Iverson is happy to be back with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Iverson is returning to the franchise where he was an MVP, calling it an opportunity he couldn't turn down. The 10-time All-Star guard signed a non-guaranteed deal with the 76ers on Wednesday, and said at the Wachovia Center that he's ready to prove he can still play.

"I want to retire here," Iverson said Thursday.

The 34-year-old Iverson was teary almost from the start of his news conference.
