Keep Dreamin’ Buddy: Allen Iverson Wants To Come Back To The NBA

- By Bossip Staff

No pun intended, but this is a pipe dream.

Allen Iverson, who won the NBA MVP in 2001, has spent the last couple of years playing overseas because no other NBA team wanted to sign him. But, at age 36, he’s ready to make a return.

“Just give me a training camp,” he told ESPN. “Maybe I’ve rubbed people the wrong way as far as saying the things I’ve said in my life and in my career. But if any team needs me to help try and win a championship in any capacity, I’m waiting.”

Iverson left the league amidst controversy dealing with his party habits and a messy divorce. Recent reports have claimed that Iverson has struggled with drinking problems and money issues, which would explain his desire to come back.

Maybe A.I. should have just saved up, because we doubt anyone is picking him up.
