Rumor: Iverson to play in Puerto Rico?
The Puerto Rican league, which starts its 30-game season in March, pays its stars about $20,000 a month, plus living expenses, sources said. The league’s commissioner is selling Iverson on the chance to work his way back to a possible return to the NBA.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Allen Iverson may soon have a job playing basketball -just not in the league or country he’d like.
Reports indicate a team in the Puerto Rican league is considering offering a contract to the future member of the Hall of Fame.
This is the latest sign the once-mighty Iverson is no longer relevant and/or meaningful. He’s a name, a marketing draw for some second-rate team in a fifth-rate league .
Sadly, Iverson only has himself to blame. He was given several opportunities to accept a role and prolong his career as a second-unit game-changer in the NBA.
Except his pride got in the way -in Detroit and Memphis. Then his personal issues became overwhelming in Philadelphia.
Now Iverson is willing to be a supporting piece, but no NBA team is interested. And his proud career is ending in the worst possible way.
