Perhaps the telltale indicator of Iverson’s divorce from financial reality, however, was an anecdote I received via a former teammate of Iverson’s from his days with the Philadelphia 76ers. This player, raised on a far higher standard of fiduciary responsibility, was amused and stunned by “A.I.’s” money habits. He related how on many road trips Iverson refused to carry baggage, evidently seeking to remain as unencumbered from physical things as he was of basketball defenders. Because of this habit, Iverson would buy a full selection of new clothes, shoes, and other expensive items at each new destination with rolls of cash he carried on his person. Moreover, upon departure, he would leave all those goodies behind in his hotel room or just give them away.
Shame...just another black man oppressed by white man.
lol yeah this is the kind of work ethic you like to see in your coach or trainer
I guess what I am saying is.... Iverson will get paid somewhere just for being the Answer... so he should do w/e it takes to make $$$. Playing pro basketball has passed him.

He'd be stupid not to do it.
Turns out he had some looking after him so he's not broke at all.
Edit: Old as shit. Someone just posted this on facebook and I didn't read the date.
Good, I will always love and root for AI.
