Allen Iverson has done many great things for this league for the NBA to treat him in such a dirty capacity. Nobody asked David Stern not to be himself, so he should not be acting this way towards Allen Iverson. HE IS WAY BETTER THAN PLENTY OF PLAYERS THAT HAVE BEEN STARTING SINCE HE WAS BARRED from the NBA in the most underhanded way. Not to mention what the referees did to him!
Shortly Before and for some time After Michael Jordan Left, Allen iverson kept the league exciting AND without an All Star Cast of team mates.
You have a player in AI whose never thrown his teammates under the bus but has always maintained that win as a team lose as a team mentality, a player who always wants to play all 48 minutes because he loves the game there competing on the big stage, a player who will always put fans in the seats,a player that gives 110%.
AI never had a DUI, No Rape charge, no Ejections for playing dirty, He never flipped out on a player for going to the heat like the cavs owner LOL. Allen Iverson is loved by not only the black community, but the basketball community, and the world community.
The striving ball player, NBA rookie, and most of all the common man/woman from meager upbringing struggling to make it in the world filled with challenges, and dealings with judgemental critics can relate to Allen Iverson.
He is the most approachable player and very down to earth. Allen Iverson donates and contributes to the lives of many disadvantaged youth as well as suburban up and coming ball players as well BUT the media never wants to mention that. Allen Iverson Represents the little guy, and he does it with a huge heart!
Read what the fans said below:
Iverson is a smart guy, the Lakers have chance to go far in the playoffs and even become the favorite in the West if they get the point guard they have been missing. Iverson is 37, but Steve Nash is 38, Jason is turning 39 and those guys aren't nearly as athletic as he is but can still play at a high level at this position.
Iverson put in the right situation could do some damage, even today, he has averaged 26.7 points in his 14-year career. Iverson was still able to score 13.8 points a game in the worst situation of his NBA career in Memphis in 2010, coming off the bench.
PLEASE,WE THE PEOPLE!!!!!! demand an ANSWER to the QUESTION that we all want to know from the NBA,Where is Allen Iverson?
We want the answer by way of a proper reintroduction to the NBA in the most respectful manner that you owe US! the loyal supporters,ticket holders,Seat Fillers!
