    Former NBA star Allen Iverson is still flirting with a return to basketball, and may play for a minor-league team to do so.

    Feb 20, 2012 - Former NBA MVP Allen Iverson remains unclaimed by an NBA team two years after last playing in the league for the Philadelphia 76ers, but rumors continue to circulate about a potential return. One previous stumbling block was that Iverson was unwilling to play in the NBA Development League or any other minor-league system, but he has since changed his stance, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard:

    With hopes of getting one last shot in the NBA, former All-Star and league MVP Allen Iverson is contemplating playing minor league basketball, according to a person close to the situation.
    Iverson is willing to play in the Caribbean, in South America or even in the D-League if it gives him a chance to return to the NBA, the source said.​
    No NBA team has expressed much interest in Iverson, but the Los Angeles Lakers' D-League affiliate has reached out to him before, according to Broussard.
    If that fails, at least Iverson has an offer to play minor-league soccer, according to a CBS Sports report.

    :pray: he signs with the Mad Ants so I can see him play.

    And I don't think he'd get schooled by D-Leaguers. The talent level in that league is turrible.

    The dude seems desperate to make a quick million dollars. He should just get a job somewhere that does not involve playing in the d-league.

    I think as one of the better point guards in this generation, he could go teach some young talent at a camp or something. Maybe he is too big of a retard for that, or is just too broke

    I think he ought to take the soccer deal. $40 grand for two games wouldn't be bad at all. I bet he'd do something incredibly athletic, too. Those videos of him playing HS football are insane.

    Id imagine some European teams would be willing to throw maybe a mil or so at him.

    He may be well past his prime but people overseas would still pack the arenas to see one of the all time greats play imo

    It's doubtful he had to really put much effort into academics in HS and college, so having an eighth grade education probably limits his options to sports. Maybe he could be a motivational speaker and talk to kids about life in the hood. Or he could start a hotline. For 99 cents a minute, you can ask the Answer. :idk:

    While I dont think Iverson would even be close to being a semi decent coach it would hard to be worse than Thomas.

    Isiah pretty much destroyed the Knicks during his time there

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ba...s-not-a-sensation-and-possibly?urn=nba-288088

    On game night inside BJK Akatlar Arena -- home court of Iverson's new team, the Besiktas Cola Turka Black Eagles -- the image of Iverson hysteria is pure and true, but the arena seats 3,200 in a city of about 13 million.
    Iverson is not a sensation here, but rather an exciting curiosity for small pockets of basketball fans, playing for a club that doesn't even compete in Euroleague, Europe's most prestigious.
    The 76ers' former all-everything guard is broke -- by all accounts except his own -- and playing here in Istanbul for a number of reasons, none of which is to become an ambassador for Turkey's solid, but often overlooked, professional league.
