Allen Iverson has turned down an opportunity to return to basketball with the Dallas Mavericks' Development League affiliate. Iverson posted a series of tweets on Tuesday explaining his decision to decline an offer from the Texas Legends. Iverson, the 2001 NBA MVP with the Philadelphia 76ers, says, "While I think the D-League is a great opportunity, it is not the route for me." Gary Moore, Iverson's manager, confirmed the decision with The Associated Press. Iverson was not available for an interview. Iverson also wrote, "I realize my actions contributed to my early departure from the NBA." The 37-year-old Iverson has not played in the NBA since the 2009-10 season. He had a brief stop with a professional team in Turkey and has played exhibition games in China. Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki recently passed Iverson for 18th on the NBA's career scoring list.
