Report: Allen Iverson to Play in Venezuelan League
I find this hard to believe.
A.I. won’t play in the D-League with a shot to play for the Lakers, but will go to Venezuela? The only way this report is true (it is coming directly from the Venezuelan team) is if they offered him an insane amount of money.
It turns out that Iverson will have a chance to begin to recoup some of his lost millions, as he has reportedly signed a contract to play point for the Guaros de Lara team in the Venezuelan League.
Iverson has made a strong decision here to platy where he can and earn money as he can. NBA teams– including the Lakers who were once rumored to be interested in his services– aren’t going to be knocking down his door anytime soon and there is limited time left for him to play and make an impact.
I won’t believe it until he is seen with a Venezuelan Twodel or at the Casino.
