Allen Iverson will no longer be playing in the NBA. However, he will be playing basketball somewhere this season. That somewhere, Istanbul. Yes, you heard me, Istanbul. Click below to read more about Allen Iverson playing overseas.
Allen Iverson will be playing for Besiktas of the Turkish league. The guy must really need money. He’ll be getting paid $4 million for a two year deal. To me, this seems like a disaster in the making. But who knows, looks at Stephon Marbury in China last year. Maybe the lack of pressure will allow him to play like his old self.
There have been several players in the last few years to make the jump to Europe. Most of these players are at the end of their career and can’t give up on the game just yet. But with Iverson, no one questions his physical ability. It’s his mental capabilities that worry people. How do you think he’ll play this year?
