AI: ALLEN INDICTED: A few observations about Allen Iverson's recent gun-toting rampage and subsequent arrest and indictment: Of course when the Sixers started winning two years ago and Iverson took his place among the NBA's elite players, we all wanted to forget that the man has always been a violent thug and likely will continue to be. And what about his wife? Tawanna Iverson, I suppose, gets to join the Joumanna Kidd Association of wives who remain married to asshole NBA players and don't mind either being grossly mistreated or reading about it in the papers the next morning. She's already forgiven Allen for throwing her out of the house- naked- AND NOT FOR THE FIRST TIME??? HUH? "You went to your cousin's apartment and brandished a gun? For ME?"
The funniest part of the whole saga is one line from the New York Post story, presumably meant with no irony at all: "'He's hurting,' said 76ers coach Larry Brown, who talked to Iverson yesterday. The superstar guard told Brown he likely will not be able to practice with the team." And if it hadn't been for the attempted pistol-whipping, you're saying Iverson would've been at practice? Sure. Adrian Wojnarowski has a great take on ESPN.com- the Sixers should stop treating Iverson like a victim and start treating him like an embarrassment.
And finally, sorry Sixers fans: if Iverson spends the remainder of contract in jail, he'll still count against the salary cap.

This is just wrong talkin bout Allen like that!what are u ppl thinkin??!?!?!?!? nobody looks on the inside of Allen all they see are the tatoos and they think he is a thug! there is more to ppl then you think. Iverson is just tryin to live his life without everyone thinkin he is bad. he cares alot about his family, especially his wife and kids! there is no reason you have to go and say all this stuff about him, like he is an embarasment! He is the only reason that this team is where they are today! and u guys need to accept him for who he is NOT what he acts like or looks like! personaly i think he is HOTT! and i want to be like him and play like him so stop dissin him and go pick on someone else! how would you like someone talkin bout you like you are bout Allen? Just STOP sayin bad things bout him!!!!!!!!!
