One thing you should know about me is that I am not very sensitive.
If athletes screw up that is on them, I rarely have any sympathy for them. The #1 reason Allen Iverson isn’t in the NBA is because of Allen Iverson.
It wasn’t like he didn’t have opportunities to stay in the league. He blew them all, including one in Philadelphia, but as someone who grew up watching A.I. and could relate to him much more than Michael Jordan this video provided by SB Nation saddens me.
He didn’t want to leave the court. The fans didn’t want him to leave the court. The Sixers didn’t want him to leave the court.
Unfortunate his career had to end the way that it did.
I am sure he lives with that regret knowing it was mostly his fault every single day.
