    Allen Iverson Sixers

    Allen Iverson has not set foot on an NBA court since 2009-10, a season split between the Grizzlies and Sixers that did not go well for anyone. Since then he has played in Turkey for a season but NBA teams have not thought the level of distraction would be worth the level of production for…

  2. Another report Allen Iverson is hemorrhaging money

    Dec 5, 2012, 7:25 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Six

    We had this same discussion a couple years ago. When Allen Iverson was playing in Turkey, a report came out of Philadelphia about how Iverson was just hemorrhaging money and was broke. Which is stunning for a guy who made an estimated $154 million in NBA salary alone. Other reports have echoed this. That was…

    Allen Iverson

    We showed you the highlight of Allen Iverson crossing over a guy in China that looked just like the old days (then missing the shot, which looked like the new days).

  4. Video: Allen Iverson’s crossover can still break ankles

    Oct 8, 2012, 1:12 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    I love this video, with an Iverson crossover just knocking down a Chinese defender in an exhibition game, because it’s such a throwback to a time when Iverson was the most entertaining player in the NBA. He will always be near the top of that all-time list for me. But please, please people don’t take…

    Heck, I’d pay to see this. Maybe more than the Heat/Clippers exhibition games that tip off in China in just more than a week. Allen Iverson and Jason Williams are going to play in an exhibition game in Beijing against Stephon Marbury and his team, the Beijing Ducks. Other guys playing on the NBA alumni…

    May 24, 2012, 2:04 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Six

    Philadelphia fans are not fair-weathered about Allen Iverson — they love him. At times during his years with the team it was tough love. But in the end Iverson did all you can ask of a player as a fan — he gave it his all every night. Iverson left it on the floor. He…

    Someone in Allen Iverson’s inner circle was a true friend to the man. We reported recently on a judge ordering Iverson to pay more than $850,000 to a jewelry store for goods received, and the judge needing to go into his bank account and get what they could. If that happened to you or me,…

    Allen Iverson got a win Tuesday. A federal judge in Detroit has dismissed a $2.5 million lawsuit against Iverson, tied to an incident in a bar from 2009.
