From Baller To Broke: Allen Iverson To Play Indoor Soccer

My how the mighty have fallen. Allen Iverson still remains my favorite NBA player, but he's got a hefty jewelry bill to pay and how do you think he's going to pay it? That's right playing SOCCER! An indoor soccer league called The Lancers have offered Allen $20,000 per game,  with a bonus of $5,000 per goal scored, win bonuses and merchandise bonuses to play for their team for the remainder of the season. Lucky (or maybe unlucky) for A.I. there are only 2 games left in the season.

  

"With his athleticism and competitive hunger, I think he can be a great fit with our team and fans as we make an important playoff push, while also driving interest to an exciting, growing sport," says Lancers vice president Rich Randall.  

 

Sounds to me like this team just wants to put some "star" power on their team and drum up some publicity. Listen, does Allen Iverson even play soccer? Don't y'all know he doesn't even come to practice!?! Allen has nothing to do so he might as well take the gig I suppose. Watch out David Beckham!

Sad to see him wandering aimlessly now. Too bad a lot of them don't plan for life after playing sports.
