I tried not to chuckle, but I did.

I am making an educated guess, based on  information I have received from various people, but I don’t think Allen Iverson is broke.  He surely isn’t as rich as he once was, but he isn’t Antoine Walker.

It isn’t a T.O. situation where he had no choice, but to play in the Indoor Football League.  A.I. has some options (none NBA), so he doesn’t have to jump at the first offer that he gets.

Allen Iverson and Puerto Rico’s professional basketball league are engaged in exploratory talks about a possible deal for the 11-time NBA All-Star, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Iverson’s business manger Gary Moore has talked with Puerto Rico officials, and the league’s teams are discussing a bidding process to woo Iverson.

The Puerto Rican league, which starts its 30-game season in March, pays its stars about $20,000 a month, plus living expenses, sources said. The league’s commissioner is selling Iverson on the chance to work his way back to a possible return to the NBA.

The thing is that Iverson can probably make $20k a month just in club appearances, so the Puerto Rican league is going to have to come up with a better deal than that.

With that being said, A.I. in Puerto Rican could provide a lot of comedic fodder, for various reasons.

I think it is time for us to come to the realization that Iverson in all likelihood will never play in the NBA again.

    Along with the whole thing that seems to be developing throughout this specific area, a significant percentage of points of view are fairly exciting. Nevertheless, I appologize, because I do not subscribe to your whole plan, all be it stimulating none the less. It seems to everyone that your opinions are actually not totally justified and in actuality you are yourself not wholly confident of the point. In any case I did take pleasure in reading through it.
