Allen Iverson has made it very clear that he still wants to play in the NBA. But unfortunately for A.I., the NBA has made it very clear that they no longer have use for him. It’s a cold business. Iverson has played overseas and with a street ball tour, but will he now play in the D-League? That sounds impossible to fathom, but the Texas Legends are trying to land the future hall of famer.
Personally, I don’t think there’s any way Iverson does this. I don’t imagine it would pay that much and I’d like to think he’d only do something like this at this stage of his career if it’s financially driven.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Legends, who are co-owned by Mavericks president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson, ramped up their season long pursuit of Iverson on Monday, offering him the chance to resurrect his career….
The Legends’ pitch to Iverson centers around the fact they’ve just convinced NBA veterans Delonte West and Rashad McCants to join their team with similar intentions, after the Legends signed another 37-year-old earlier this month — point guard Mike James — and wound up putting James in position to earn a 10-day callup to the Mavericks that turned into a guaranteed contract after James completed his second 10-day deal Sunday.
