The Allen Iverson saga has become full-blown bizarre. On Monday, a TMZ report said that the former Philadelphia 76ers star was essentially on the lam, having kidnapped his five children and living at a Sheraton hotel in the Atlanta area. According to the report, Iverson had failed to get the kids back to his ex-wife, Tawanna Iverson, who wanted him thrown in jail.

Click on the photo to read more about LeBron’s last stand in the 2013 NBA Championship Has LeBron run out of time? The answer is really no. I’d be shocked if the Heat lost Game 6.
