You just have to wonder: Why would Allen Iverson consider a return to the pro basketball in the NBA Development League?
We're talking about D-League! D-League?!?
Word surfaced Monday that the Texas Legends are in hot pursuit of the former scoring champ and MVP, team sources confirmed to FOXSportsSouthwest.com. The Frisco-based franchise is the D-League affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks and co-owned by Mavericks president Donnie Nelson.
Iverson would certainly be a draw at Dr Pepper Arena and around the NBA's minor-league circuit. Few players over the last two decades approach the popularity AI enjoys around the world.
The Answer is polarizing and a basketball genius. There hasn't been a little guy dominate a big man's game the way Iverson did during his Philadelphia heyday. Say what you want about his authority-questioning attitude and tatted appearance, AI left a mark on the NBA that won't be erased.
There's also no reason to add to his legacy.
