PLAYERS: Allen Iverson

Via Larry Brown Sports:

Allen Iverson recently made an unexpected guest appearance on boxer Adrien Broner’s online reality show “About Billions.” Apparently Broner’s crew ran into Iverson while they were partying in Atlanta, and some serious weirdness ensued.

Iverson’s cameo on the show was brief, with the former NBA star talking about how he wants to play Russian Roulette. He didn’t really sound like he was joking.

“You wanna play?” Iverson asked Broner. “Me and you, cuz I’m ready to play Russian Roulette.”

Broner then asked him if he meant with a fully loaded pistol, which seemed to excite Iverson even more.

Damn sure ready to play Russian Roulette,” he said emphatically.

They then shared a few laughs and Iverson signed off with a weird message about how Broner’s the real deal (I think). Simply put, he didn’t appear to be at a good place in his life mentally.

Iverson reportedly owes $40,000 in unpaid child support and was recently accused ofkidnapping his own children, so life after basketball does not sound like it’s going well for him. We hope he was either joking and/or drunk when talking about playing Russian Roulette, because he made it sound like he would have played if someone handed him a gun. And if that’s the case, he might need some professional help.

Now, I bring that up only to awkwardly segue into this. Friday, the reigning American League MVP turned...
