Allen Iverson eligible for 2016 Basketball Hall of Fame

Retired Philadelphia 76ers superstar Allen Iverson will reportedly be eligible for the Basketball Hall of Fame’s 2016 class.The last time Iverson suited up in the NBA was the 2009-10 season, when he returned to Philadelphia for 25 games after several years in Denver and brief stints in Detroit and Memphis. Hall of Fame candidates have to be retired for five full years before they can be enshrined.

He only officially retired in October 2013, but since Iverson has been removed from the NBA long enough, Saturday’s news has him on an expedited track to Springfield, Massachusetts.

Iverson won the league MVP award in 2001 when he averaged 31.1 points and then put up 32.9 points per contest in the playoffs, guiding the Sixers to the NBA Finals. Although the team lost to the Los Angeles Lakers, Iverson helped his underdog squad steal Game 1 with 48 points. His performance was highlighted by an iconic moment in which he stepped over Los Angeles Lakers point guard Tyronn Lue after hitting a key jump shot in overtime.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James has spoken of how he idolized Iverson before making his own mark in the Association, comparing Iverson’s impact to that of Michael Jordan’s.

“Pound-for-pound, probably the greatest player who ever played. He was one of the greatest finishers we’ve ever seen. You could never question his heart. Ever. He gave it his all. A.I. was like my second-favorite player growing up, after MJ.” said James of Iverson.”

Allen Iverson emotional speech, accepting game changer award! video

Truly a game changer,

While accepting the Game Changer Award at the National Basketball Players Association’s inaugural Players’ Awards, Iverson began his speech with a sign of respect for MJ, perhaps the most famous victim of his lethal crossover.


“If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be on this stage,” Iverson said. “I wouldn’t have had the vision to be a basketball player. So I love him for that, and I honor him for that.”


He later went on to shout out LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Chris Paul, five of today’s premier players.


Iverson’s moving speech transitioned from the court to the world, and he said that each day is the “same fight, different round


“When I leave out of the crib every day, people always say to me, “What up, AI?’” Iverson said. “I tell them the same thing 99.9 percent of the time. I tell them, ‘the same fight, different round.’ This world is a world title fight. Some days you’re going to get knocked down. Some rounds are going to be good. Some are going to be bad. The only thing that matters is getting back up and fighting again.”

Yes! This is a homer pick! I am a Big Steph Curry Lover! nothing wrong about that because he has made another history. I feel great about this simply because not like Iverson’s team, Curry’s team right now is different and even though Iverson faced a tougher challenge he didn’t back down even though they lost to LA Lakers. Curry will also attempt to beat another First NBA team since he has beaten his co first NBA team before getting to the finals. They beat Anthony Davis and the pelicans, Mark Gasol and the Grizzlies and James Harden of Houston Rockets. The only man left to beat is Lebron James. 
I know Lebron is still the best player however Curry just like Iverson isn’t afraid to go after his goal. 
Geez  I can’t wait for Thursday’s Game 1 .
That’s it for now, I know you guys can’t sleep either but don’t worry we will always be here to keep you guys updated and entertained.

It’s official, Allen Iverson is in Turkey, now an ambassador of the game

Source: MSNBC sports

Just look at the photo from this press conference today, announcing Allen Iverson official signing a two-year deal with Besiktas Cola Turka in the Turkish league. (via Iverson’s site)

Does anyone look happy?

Iverson said he was happy to go, he has the chance now to be a basketball ambassador to the world. He’ll make $4 million in two years (he can opt out after one). The owners of Besiktas have to be thrilled as Iverson will be a draw, they should make money. This will be a big boost for the Turkish league, landing the first American real star to head overseas.

However, like Larry Brown and others had said, it’s sad to see it end up this way.

Iverson was an American basketball icon, but never one you pictured as an ambassador of the game. He was an MVP and the only offensive option — and enough of one — on a 2001 Sixers team that went to the finals. And he did it with his own style. The exaggerated crossover. The hip-hop style. He brought the game to the street. He was exciting to watch.

But he got older and could not adjust his game to the game anymore. And he was unwilling in Denver and Memphis and Philadelphia to fit in. He wouldn’t be the designated scorer off the bench, which is where his game is.

So he’s in Turkey. And this could be good for everyone. He could be a basketball ambassador.

If Iverson accepts the role this time.

Turkish side Besiktas sign former NBA MVP Allen Iverson

source: Reuters.com

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Eleven-time NBA All-Star guard Allen Iverson signed a two-year contract with Turkish club Besiktas on Friday.

Iverson played 25 games with the Philadelphia 76ers last season averaging 13.9 points but was unable to secure an offer from an NBA team this season.

 

“I’m at the point in my career where mentally and physically I know I can play basketball and that’s what I want to do. If I can’t play in the NBA, but I want to play basketball, that’s a decision I have to make,” Iverson told reporters in New York.

“My whole thing was being wanted and being accepted by a ball club. That was the most important thing to me: to be wanted.”

The deal is set to earn Iverson, who is 17th on the NBA’s career scoring list with 24,368 points and winner of the MVP award in 2001 when he led the Sixers to the finals, $4 million.

Iverson, 35, enjoyed his best years with Philadelphia but also had spells with the Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies.

Iverson, 35, should make his debut for Besiktas on November 20.

“It’s the fact that I want to play and contribute what I can give to a basketball team,” Iverson said.

Allen Iverson considers playing in China‎

source: Agence France-Presse

PHILADELPHIA – Former National Basketball Association MVP Allen Iverson is contemplating a move to China.

Iverson, who is getting no interest from NBA teams, was contacted by a Chinese team last month, says his agent Gary Moore. Moore declined to name the team or provide more details.

 

The 35-year-old Iverson is at the tail end of his career and isn’t getting any calls from the NBA which opens training camps in two weeks.

We’re very astonished, to say the least, that not one team has contacted us with any interest,” Moore said. “I just don’t understand it.”

If Iverson heads to China he would follow former all-star Stephon Marbury who played last season for Shanxi Zhongyu of the Chinese Basketball Association.

Iverson, the former first overall draft pick in 1996, played just three games for Memphis last year before being shipped to Philadelphia.

Iverson is 17th on the NBA’s career scoring list with 24,368 points.
