Boxer Adrien Broner has created a web series, entitled ‘About Billions.’ It gives you a peek inside the über hyper boxer’s life. On episode 3, Broner was in Atlanta and ran into AI where the two discuss playing Russian Roulette. Other sites are making this quick convo out to be super dark and ominous. To me it just seems like two athletes talking sh*t after the club, one perhaps a bit more tipsy than the other and handling their liquor differently. Perhaps with all of AI’s recent drama, that factors into people feeling as if he’s serious. What do you think? Language is not safe for tender ears.   Outside the Atlanta nightclub, Iverson sits in an SUV with the doors open and asks Broner if he’s carrying a gun. “It’s always in the bag,” Broner replies, and Iverson starts talking about playing Russian roulette. It’s hard to believe that Iverson is being serious, but he provides no clear indication that his suggestion is a joke. Broner laughs it off and says “This is a fully loaded pistol! … The first shot, you dead.” To which Iverson replies: “You think I don’t know?” He smiles and laughs and gives Broner a fist-pound as the scene ends, which makes the exchange seem more like a gag. But damn if Iverson’s retort didn’t sound cold-blooded, like he was ready to grab Broner’s handgun and let the spent shells fall where they may. After Broner leaves, the camera lingers with Iverson, who puts his hood up so his eyes are cloaked in shadow and then delivers a brief endorsement of the young fighter in a cryptic, late-night drawl: “Yeah I know who he is. Yeah I know what he do. Ain’t no fluke. That **** real. Beat your ass. You know what time it is. It’s your man, A.I.”   The next comment has nothing to do with AI, why is Broner showing his guy rolling a blunt and driving at the same time with him in the car? Where does that translate to a good idea? I feel like the “extras” have to be an act for attention. Whose that simple that they can’t see how this could be a bad look? Le sigh…   source
