HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call:It didn’t have to be this way. It shouldn’t have been this way.
Allen Iverson - perhaps The Greatest Little Man to ever play in the NBA – should not be ending his career as a gimmick in a foreign country.
He should be playing meaningful minutes. He should be thriving as a sixth-man, game-changer for a contender. And he should, at a minimum, be relevant.
However, Iverson refused to play a role. He wouldn’t do it for the Detroit Pistons. He walked on the Memphis Grizzlies after game three. His personal issues with the Philadelphia 76ers didn’t help, either.
No team offered him a contract this summer. He's out of chances and at fault for his current situation.
Hopefully, Iverson remembers this while plying his trade in Turkey.
