Troubled NBA legend Allen Iverson has been difficult to keep track of these days.
After Leaving the Philadelphia 76ers in 2006, he played for the Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons, Memphis Grizzlies, and then back to the 76ers before officially retiring in 2010. The last people have seen of Iverson was playing in Turkey before having surgery on his calf last year.
Since his surgery Iverson has been completely out of the spotlight which he used to hold so effortlessly. But now Iverson desperately needs to make a comeback. A Georgian judge has ordered his wages garnished to pay back almost one million dollars worth of jewelry debt.
Since the judge’s order, rumors have been popping up like crazy. Iverson is rumored to be going to Puerto Rico to play basketball. Chris Broussard of ESPN has stated that Iverson wants to play for the D-League and possibly make his way back to the NBA. Now the Rochester Lancers, of the Major Indoor Soccer League’s top level of pro indoor soccer have offered Iverson a contract. The offer is for $20,000 a game and an additional $5,000 for every goal he scores.
Rich Randall, the vice president of the club believes Iverson will be a great fit for the team if he accepts the offer. “With his athleticism and competitive hunger, I think he can be great fit with our team and fans as we make an important playoff push, while also driving interest to an exciting, growing sport.”
Iverson hasn’t said anything publicly about the offer yet but it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
