allen iverson 76ers uniformAllen Iverson is going through an especially hard time right now and may be hitting “rock bottom,” according to what friends have told the Washington Post.

The extensive expose on the former 76ers player describes a scene during Iverson’s  divorce proceeding in Atlanta in 2012 where he pulls out his pants pockets, and shouts at his estranged wife Tawanna: “I don’t even have money for a cheeseburger.” Tawanna then handed him 61 bucks.

For the past three years, as Iverson chased an NBA comeback, his marriage fell apart and much of his fortune — he earned more than $150 million in salary alone during his career — dissolved. Now, those who once ignored past signals have recognized that basketball may have been the only thing holding Iverson’s life together.

“He has hit rock bottom, and he just hasn’t accepted it yet,” says former Philadelphia teammate Roshown McLeod.

    I love the headline above …… Black Enterprise “Wealth for Life” but every story I ever read here is about how these Black Athletes and Celebs pissed away a fortune…. 15 Sprogs with 14 Baby Mamas (set of twins) Supporting their Posse. The only Black Celebs that their Wealth Exeeded their life was Tupac, Biggie, The Pedophile of Pop Michael Jackson And Orca but I am sure she will eat thru her dollars before its all said and done. Iverson is just Keepin it real. I suppose Barry and Moochelle are wealthy if you consider spending all of our money rich.

  • He was a A-hole, arrogant (of course), thought he was the smartest guy around but prob could not have passed a GED if questions were related to the three R’s and his next step will be jail most likely as his ONLY talent may be hanging out on the corner and selling drugs to other losers. Remember Tyson and others who couldn’t count to two! Freaks of nature born without brains, almost all of them. Buy 21 room houses for 30 Mil, trash them, pay 150 to keep them straight, sell the house for 2.5 Mil, etc, etc. I always thought a full degree in something other than black studies, 4 full years in college and a diploma before becoming eligible for the draft, a 10 mil trust fund handled by others for the baby mothers afterwords, etc, etc. I doubt if any feel sorry for these A-holes because I sure don’t. No money for a cheeseburger???????? Sell his gold!!!

  • I don’t think most people have any clue about the truth of the reality he’s facing. I hope he finds peace. don’t know what else to say
