A Major Indoor Soccer League team has offered former NBA All-Star Allan Iverson a contract. In what can be considered a publicity stunt by the semi-professional team, Iverson would earn $20,000 per game with a bonus of $5,000 for every goal scored along with merchandise bonuses. “Allen Iverson is one of the premier athletes of our time,” said Lancers vice president Rich Randall. “With his athleticism and competitive hunger, I think he can be a great fit with our team and fans as we make an important playoff push, while also driving interest to an exciting and growing sport.” Iverson would be a fool not to accept. Who cares what the sport is, take the money and run. -TO
