Iverson's relative to NBA team: Give him a contract so he can pay me
 

 



We've been following former NBA all star Allen Iverson's road to Turkish professional basketball team Besiktas with interest, and we're not allowed. Philly.com sent a writer to Istanbul to check up on Iverson, whose most recent game was televised on NBA TV Sunday.

The report is fascinating: Iverson is not even close to a household name in Turkey, where interest in soccer far exceeds interest in basketball. Worse, some digging uncovered financial troubles for Iverson are reportedly his motivation for playing overseas.

"It's not a problem, it's not a problem - money," Iverson said at an Oct. 29 news conference in New York. "Obviously if it was about money, I would jump out there and say, 'You want me to come off the bench? How much money are you paying?' It wouldn't be a big deal. It's not about money or anything like that."

A member of one NBA front office, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the subject matter, said that prior to last season, a member of Iverson's family called to inquire about a contract for Iverson, explaining that Iverson owed that person money and would be unable to pay without a contract.

A similar source explained that Iverson is broke, plain and simple.

Over his NBA career, including his lucrative deal with Reebok, Iverson made more than $100 million.

Iverson signed a multi-year contract with Besiktas for millions of dollars. Hopefully that money will, in a roundabout way, provide a happy ending for one of the NBA's most popular players in recent years.

That's unfortunate... I used to be one of the biggest Iverson fans. Since a lot of these cats come from nothing and don't educate themselves they have no idea what to do with money wxcept for buy homes, chains, and whips.

Its plausible...not saying its true but its plausible

Don't see how people could think just cuz they stars that come on our tv they would never be stupid enuff to spend all that money...

They human and they come from the hood just like us...you get money--->>>fast life is next. Equate it to those dreams of winning the lottery that you know u dun had...u know the 1's where you got 7 all-white exotic cars, 1 for each mood you in...then tell me how he couldn't be broke.

I refuse to believe he spent close to 17 mill in a year. Dude ain't having no money problems. They didn't want him in the league so why won't they just leave the man alone.
