While he remains hopeful of getting one last shot at the NBA but says he’s turning down the opportunity to launch his comeback in the NBA Rulees Fantasy League.
Iverson, via his Twitter feed, said Tuesday that he’s passing on an offer from Frankie Buckets to join his Fantasy League, the NBA Rulees.
Iverson tweeted: “I thank Frankie and the NBA Rulees Fantasy league for the consideration and while I think the Fantasy League offer is a great opportunity, it is not the route for me.”
Iverson added: “I realize my actions contributed to my early departure from the NBA, should God provide me another opportunity I will give it my all. … My dream has always been to complete my legacy in the NBA.

Allen Iverson wants to get back into the NBA, but is not really sure how. He teetering the line between semi-retired and unemployed player, and something has to give.

Allen Iverson is still interested in playing basketball, but he doesn’t want to prove himself at the lower levels in order to be given another shot in the NBA.

Gary Moore, Iverson’s manager, was in Philadelphia visiting with Sixers owner Josh Harris and CEO Adam Aron about reconnecting Iverson with the 76ers. Iverson led the Sixers to the 2001 NBA Finals and is cemented as one of the franchise’s all-time great players.

It was reported earlier on Tuesday that Allen Iverson was offered to play in the NBA D-League for the Texas Legends, who are the affiliate for the Dallas Mavericks. Iverson could have a shot at making an NBA team if he played some games in the D-League, as Mike James was able to land a full-time spot on the Mavs roster for the rest of the season.
However, A.I. decided that...
Allen Iverson might have killed his last chance at getting back into the NBA. The Dallas Mavericks recently offered the 37-year old with a troubled past a chance to play for their D-League affiliate the Texas Legends. Iverson while appreciative of the offer turned down Mark Cuban and in my opinion put the final nail in the coffin on his NBA career.
Iverson tweeted: “I thank Donnie...
I thank Donnie and Dallas for the consideration and while I think the D-League is a great opportunity, it is not the route for me.
