Final Answer

It seems the curtain is closing on Allen Iverson's NBA career.He was released by the Philadelphia 76ers yesterday after missing time to be with his sick daughter.Or so we thought.He was reportedly seen partying  in Charlotte with music producer Jermaine Dupri.
  Iverson has had a brilliant career,but his later years have been marred by controversy and two disastrous stints with the Pistons and Grizzlies.After signing with the 76ers,he wasn't able to recapture the past glory that made him one of the more decorated stars in the league.I still think he can play and has the ability to help a contender.I just don't think he has the will to take on a lesser role on a winning team or to be a mentor on a young team.In previous postings, I've said some unflattering things about the guy.I actually like him as a player.Can't really say much for the man himself since I don't know him.I hate to see him going out limping on a bad knee and a damaged reputation.That is something he could've taken care of a long time ago.He's just to headstrong for any team and they really don't want to deal with it.I don't blame them.To top all this off,his wife is filing for divorce saying their marriage is "irretrievably broken".She also wants full custody of their five children,along with alimony and child support.I don't know how he feels,but he has to be thinking his world is crumbling.Maybe he takes the rest of this season off and tries to prioritize his life.
