Default AI eager for another chance in the NBA

Quote:
Allen Iverson is eager to make a comeback to the NBA.

“I’ll play for anybody,” Iverson told Yahoo! Sports.

Iverson is 36-years-old and played only briefly last season in Turkey for Besiktas.

Iverson said his final stint in the NBA with the Sixers ended badly due to his distractions with his daughter's health and divorce proceedings.

“That wasn’t me at all,” Iverson said. “Obviously, I was dealing with the situation with my daughter and going through a divorce, and I wasn’t there mentally. In my career those last couple years were so hard for me because I wasn’t there. Mentally, I wasn’t there.

“During those 48 minutes on the basketball court, all I [ever] cared about was that time right there. Nothing else distracted me. But at times, I felt myself standing on the court just thinking about my daughter, thinking about the situation with me and my wife. I wasn’t giving [the teams] everything I had mentally.”

Multiple reports within the past couple years said Iverson has been troubled by financial, alcohol and gambling issues. He admitted there was some truth to his personal problems but declined to go into detail.

“There are going to be people out there that say things,” Iverson said. “But it’s the same thing I teach my kids: ‘If it’s not true, why do you worry about it?’ It bothers me at times because I do have a heart, and my kids do have to hear some of those things. But that’s the only time it bothers me. I’m used to people saying a bunch of things about me that are not true.”

Iverson is willing to play a reserve role for a team.

"I’m just willing to help any squad in any capacity.

“Hopefully, one squad will believe in me and we will go from there. That would be a lot better than having to go overseas.”

Does anyone take him serious anymore? I lost count of how many times he signed a contract and a day later quits the team.

So, he's finally been "broken", but it's too late. He just needs the paycheque now and everyone knows it. If he would have gotten humble a long time ago, he could have made at least Jose Calderon money for every year of the last few years.

I still say you should sign him. Imagine the fun, the drama!
You would take some eyes off Miami.

Raptors Index!
If you can also add Vince, and maybe Rasheed, now that would be fun...
