A.I. might as well start packing because no NBA team is going to call. Might as well get over to China early, no need to delay.

Can hang out with Stephon Marbury and hope they build him a statue.

According to a report in a Chinese hoops publication NetEase, found and translated by Hoopshype.

“I definitely want to return to the NBA, but if I can’t get back there, I’m hoping to play ball here (China).”

With regards to his team of choice, Iverson chose to reply obliquely, saying: “I’m not leaning towards any one team, and there’s no ‘first choice’ like what the others say.” However, Iverson points to the CBA as one of his backup options. “China is still one of my choices, but the team that wants me to join has got to show me that they really mean it, like ‘hey we really need you’.”

When A.I. took his talents to Turkey that didn’t work out too well, but I don’t believe he thought he was done with the NBA at that time.

Reality has to set in at some point.

    It would be nice to see a team pick AI up so he can retire in style.
