 Report: Allen Iverson facing alcohol, gambling problems - ESPN

Multiple NBA sources say Allen Iverson is facing alcohol and gambling issues that have derailed his career and threaten his post-basketball well-being, Stephen A. Smith of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports in a column published Monday.

According to multiple NBA sources, there is widespread concern that the four-time NBA scoring champion, who left the Philadelphia 76ers in February to deal with his daughter's illness and will not return this season, "will either drink himself into oblivion or gamble his life away," Smith reported.

Iverson's gambling problem is serious enough that he has been banished from casinos in Detroit and Atlantic City, N.J., according to Smith.

The report comes as Iverson is dealing with significant personal problems.

Iverson's wife Tawana filed for divorce on March 4, the same day the Philadelphia 76ers announced that the All-Star guard would not return for the rest of the season. In the divorce filing, made at Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta, Tawana Iverson said the couple's 8˝-year marriage is "irretrievably broken" and sought full custody of the family's five children, child support and alimony.

Wow, this blindsides a brother. I didn't think AI would have more issues that what we already knew.

Hope someone can talk to this guy, and I think coach Thompson is the one that can do it, like John Chaney said.

^^If Thompson can't do it then I don't think no one can but himself.

Foolish pride can make and break you. A.I. is the prime example. It sucks to know A.I. is going through this.

The lack of financial literacy is what's going on. Just because you're rich doesn't mean anything.

If he's gambling and drinking hard like steven A says then its gonna be easy for him to go broke.

Its easy to gamble away millions, but not drink , usually when you got money u dont pay for that many drinks .. This n*gga just has 2 much bread to go broke .. I just dont see it .. he has made damn near 300 million if not more .. He got a 100 mil lifetime contract from Reebok, and then had an 80 mil then 90 mil contract .. Dont know what he was getting before then .. but the dude has cake ..

maybe he is having a hard time accepting that his basketball career is coming to an end.
combine losing your wife and potentially your kids with that... i have always respected iverson's heart so i hope he pulls out of all of this if the rumors are true.
