Allen Iverson

Allen Iverson has been a controversial and polarizing figure for quite some time. He was known to be both phenomenally talented, and incessantly annoying. There is the Allen Iverson who played through numerous injuries, this in a sport where it is not commonplace to do so. This Allen Iverson, earned the respect of many as a tough player, despite being undersized. Then there is the Allen Iverson who has made controversial decisions in his career. These include the “we’re talking about practice” incident, to refusing to play when he was forced to come off the bench. I have heard varied opinions on this him, both as a player and a person. Despite being a controversial figure, his talent was undeniable in his prime. This man’s prime however has long passed, and at 37, Iverson is clearly not the player he once was. Even if he joins the Lakers the difference will be nominal at best.

Apparently Allen Iverson’s bank account has been seized through a court order, in order to pay an absolutely massive jewelry debt. Too often do we see a professional athlete, who made millions upon millions of dollars, end up completely broke only a few short years after their careers end. This usually follows child support payments, bad investments, splurging on luxuries, or a combination of them all. Mark Brunell is still with the New York Jets because of bad investments. I wish I could say I am surprised to hear the news of Allen Iverson’s financial woes, but sadly, I am not. Allen Iverson has become another unfortunate statistic, due to wasted money and fame.
