Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated (also host of a weekly show on NBC Sports Radio, plus he’s a regular guest on the NBC Sports Network ) grew up in the Boston area, went to Boston College, and for a decade was a ball boy at the Boston Garden.
With that comes a lot of good stories, like the time Allen Iverson sent him out to buy beer after a game. A story he recounts in the video above from SI.
